Colposuspension Repair Surgery

Colposuspension Surgery (also known as the Burch procedure or Burch suspension) is a surgical procedure to treat stress incontinence.

Colposuspension Repair Surgery Procedure for Stress IncontinenceColposuspension repair is performed under general anaesthetic using a laparoscope via a small incision, usually via the bellybutton. Small incisions in the lower abdomen allow the insertion of other instruments required to perform the procedure. An incision is made inside the abdomen - between the bladder and the back of the pubic bone (the space of Retzius). The bladder is then suspended.

Colposuspension most often involves placing stitches adjacent to the neck of the bladder on each side and suturing them to the strong ligaments attached to the pubic bone.

Pelvic floor exercises should be performed before and after this bladder repair surgery to ensure best patient outcomes. Your pelvic floor will recover quicker and surgery will be longer lasting if you combine it with pelvic floor exercise. Kegel exercises following laparoscopic surgery is a must!

Pelvic floor rehabilitation and strengthening with a Kegel8 Pelvic Toner is vital because other pelvic organs such as the uterus and bowel can prolapse too and exercising will help to keep them in place and stop further prolapse problems.
