Traveling From San Antonio to Austin for da Vinci Sacrocolpopexy

Austin, Texas has a national reputation for being one of the best cities to visit 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. Given how critical it is to find an experienced doctor to perform an intricate surgery like da Vinci sacrocolpopexy, women are traveling to Austin from San Antonio and beyond to have their procedure performed by Dr. Shashoua.

Due to aging and childbirth, it’s common for the supportive tissues of the vagina and pelvic floor to stretch over time. Vaginal laxity can not only cause decreased sensation during sex, but if it grows more severe it can progress to the point of pelvic organ prolapse. There are several surgical procedures that can fix prolapse and restore the vagina and perineum: vaginal prolapse repair, which usually consists of colporrhaphy and perineorrhaphy, and da Vinci sacrocolpopexy, a procedure that utilizes a robotic arm to assist in the placement of polypropylene mesh that supports the vagina and corrects cystocele, rectocele, and enterocele.

If you are traveling to Austin for vaginal prolapse repair or da vinci sacrocolpopexy, you will need to visit Austin at least twice: the first time will be for an in-person consultation (unfortunately, consultations for pelvic organ prolapse cannot be performed virtually), and the second time will be for your procedure. During the consultation we will discuss your medical history and evaluate your condition in order to get a better idea of how best to proceed. Following the consultation, we’ll schedule your procedure and provide you with all of the information you’ll need ahead of time.
