Southern Cross Invercargill Hospital - Gynaecology
Private Surgical Service, Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Pelvic Floor Repair
An incision (cut) is made in your navel (tummy button) and several small cuts in the abdomen (stomach). A thin telescopic instrument (laparoscope) is inserted through your navel, allowing the surgeon a view of the pelvic floor. Small instruments are inserted into the cuts that can lift the prolapsed or sagging organs back into position and reattach them.
