What Is Bladder Prolapse Surgery?


Bladder prolapse surgery is a procedure that entails making an incision in the vaginal wall, adjusting the bladder back into its normal position, closing the prolapsed area and strengthening the vaginal wall, according to WebMD. The surgery is performed to treat symptoms such as abnormal urinary frequency and urgency.

Bladder prolapse surgery is performed under local, regional or general anesthesia depending on the specific procedure and patient, says WebMD. Generally, women who undergo bladder prolapse surgery go home on the same day, although complicated surgeries are likely to confine the patient in the hospital for closer management of the recovery process.
