What is Pelvic Floor Reconstruction?

pelvic floor reconstruction

Pelvic floor reconstruction is a group of various surgical procedures used to treat pelvic organ prolapse, a condition that occurs when the muscles of the pelvic floor are weakened or damaged, often due to childbirth.

Other causes include:

  • Repeated heavy lifting
  • Chronic disease
  • Surgery

The pelvic floor includes the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue and nerves that support and control your bladder, uterus, vagina and rectum.

The pelvic floor holds the structures in your pelvis in place. Your pelvic floor is a very complex layer and usually functions very well, but it can be damaged if too much stress is placed upon it.

In particular, childbirth and the tremendous forces of labor with the dilation of your pelvic floor to allow for the passage of a baby and the huge pressures exerted during the pushing phase of labor all act to weaken, damage, or break your supporting tissues.
