Prolapse - The hidden epidemic women needs to speak up about.

Pelvic organ prolapse – when a woman’s bladder, uterus, or rectum falls down through the vaginal canal – affects millions of women in America, and becomes more likely the older they get. It severely limits their ability to enjoy life to its fullest. The patients that come to our clinic have  shared how limiting their physical and social abilities were for decades. Still many don't seek treatment right away. One of our patients even shared how her male primary doctor pretty much told her that she just has to live that condition!

It is not just the uterus, bladder or rectum bulging out of their vagina, but the associated incontinence severely limits their life. I encourage all women in their 50s and have any symptoms of incontinence and/or any bulging to seek medical help. Check out the video testimonials in this website from numerous patients of our clinic who shared their experience. 

One thing that is consistent is how much their life changed for better and most wish that they had seeked help earlier.
