What is Sacrocolpopexy?

Sacrocolpopexy (sacral colpopexy) is a surgical procedure that is used to treat cases of pelvic organ prolapse. While most commonly used for vaginal vault prolapses, the method can also be employed to treat uterine prolapses (in which case, the procedure is known as sacrohysteropexy). It can be performed either through open surgery or keyhole surgery (laparoscopy).

A laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy procedure has a higher success rate than other forms of surgery and is usually preferred by both patients and Dr G for the associated advantages.
