At NYU Langone, our doctors specialize in diagnosing and treating pelvic organ prolapse, a condition in which one or more of a woman’s pelvic organs or other structures—including the bladder, bowel, rectum, urethra, uterus, and vagina—drop out of position, causing pressure and discomfort. Pelvic organ prolapse may be a result of childbirth, genetic predisposition, or chronic stress on the pelvis, among other causes, and is estimated to affect nearly half of women older than age 50.
NYU Langone experts helped create national guidelines for treating this common condition, leading the way in defining the most effective care for pelvic organ prolapse. At NYU Langone's Center for Female Pelvic Medicine, our board-certified specialists in female pelvic medicine, including urologists and urogynecologists, work as a team to provide personalized care that best suits your needs.
Doctors at NYU Langone treat pelvic organ prolapse using surgical and nonsurgical techniques, depending on your symptoms, the severity of the condition, and its impact on your quality of life. Our specialists work with you to find the right treatment, taking into consideration your age, lifestyle, and any pregnancy plans.
