Traveling From Dallas to Austin for Vaginal Prolapse Repair
Austin, Texas has become a vacation hot spot due to its top notch cultural and culinary scenes. It also happens to be home to Austin Urogynecology and Dr. George Shashoua, a nationally top-ranked surgeon who is board-certified in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. Because it’s critical to find an experienced surgeon for intricate surgeries like vaginal prolapse repair, women are traveling to Austin from Dallas, Texas and beyond to have Dr. Shashoua perform their procedures.
Factors such as aging and childbirth make it common for the supportive tissue of the vagina and pelvic floor to stretch out over time. Vaginal laxity not only decreases sensation during intercourse, but over time as tissues continue to weaken it can grow more severe and progress to the point of pelvic organ prolapse. Austin Urogynecology offers several surgical procedures that address vaginal prolapse and help restore the vagina and perineum: vaginal prolapse repair, which typically entails colporrhaphy and perineorrhaphy, and da Vinci sacrocolpopexy, which utilizes a robotic arm to assist with the placement of supportive mesh that stabilizes the vagina and corrects cystocele, rectocele, and enterocele.
If you are considering traveling to Austin for vaginal prolapse repair or da vinci sacrocolpopexy, please note that you will need to visit Austin for an in-person consultation (unfortunately, virtual consultations for pelvic organ prolapse are not effective due to the nature of the symptoms being evaluated), follow up visits will include your preop visit, surgery and post op visits. At the initial consultation, we will go over your medical history and evaluate your symptoms in order to determine the best treatment. After the consultation, we’ll schedule your procedure and provide all the information you will need in advance.
