Sacrocolpopexy is a procedure performed using the da Vinci Robotic System to correct vaginal vault prolapse. The robotic procedure allows the physician to correct the prolapse and thus provide the patient with a durable repair. Unlike the open repair, the da Vinci System is minimally invasive, more precise, less pain, less blood loss, and better cosmetics. Most of the time, patients spend only 1 night in the hospital. The procedure uses mesh to hold the vagina in the correct anatomical position. Physicians can perform this procedure, to provide long term support of the vagina, with or without the uterus in place.
The long term cure rates for this procedure range from 75-98%.
The da Vinci Sacrocolpopexy offers a number of benefits compared to the traditional treatment option. These benefits include:
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Lower risk of infection
- Less scarring
