Post-surgery interviews with sacrohysteropexy patients have revealed a 100% success rate in the treatment of their prolapsed uterus.
The success rate of this ground-breaking prolapse surgery has been described as “excellent”, with “minimal” complications, according to a study of post-operative women, who were completely happy with the results. The operation’s purpose is providing support for the womb to keep it in its natural position.
If you’re suffering uterus problems which you feel need further investigation, including uterus pain or uterine prolapse bleeding, contact Mr Jonathan Broome at The Pelvic Clinic to discuss your options for treatment and recovery, including in cases of severe uterine prolapse.
Mr Broome has achieved a 100% success rate with sacrohysteropexy surgery, ensuring patients have regained their quality of life. As one of only a small number of surgeons in the UK who perform this uterus-sparing surgery, he has performed more than 1,000 prolapse repair operations, achieving excellent results.
Independent research has revealed the amazing success rate of sacrohysteropexy. Among post-operative patients questioned in a 2006 study by Ozdemir, Demirci, Somunkiran, Alhan, Doyran and Gul, there were no reports of complications at all. In addition, three women conceived very soon after the operation. The study concluded this prolapse repair procedure was “safe” and “effective” in treating prolapse for women who wished to retain their uterus.
The major benefit of sacrohysteropexy is that it does not involve a hysterectomy – the full removal of the womb – while it restores the correct anatomy of the vagina. This means it is still possible for patients to conceive after the surgery, so a young couple’s hopes of starting a family will not be dashed by a uterine prolapse.
The surgery does not require a major abdominal incision. Normally, there are four relatively small incisions. In cosmetic terms, this is a benefit, while in terms of post-surgery recovery, it is less painful so less pain medication will be necessary.
The time spent in hospital is also less and the recovery period is shorter, with around two weeks required to recuperate from the surgery, followed by another relatively short recovery period prior to undertaking any heavier work.
Consultant gynaecological surgeon Mr Broome treats women of all ages from all over the UK from his Lancashire base and helps patients make an informed choice.
