Prolapse is a condition where organs fall down or slip out of place. There are several types of prolapse, which can be felt as pressure or even a bulge or ball at the vaginal opening. These include:

All options are tailored to the patient's exact diagnosis. Robotic-assisted surgeries or minimally invasive vaginal incisions are usually possible.
