Rectocele Repair

Rectocele repair surgery aims to strengthen and support the vaginal wall to prevent the rectum from bulging into the vagina. Absolute Surgical is specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of pelvic floor disorders, including enterocele and rectocele. Our highly skilled surgeons and healthcare professionals are dedicated to providing comprehensive care to help you manage and overcome these conditions, improving your quality of life with advanced medical solutions and compassionate support.

What is Rectocele Surgery?

Rectocele surgery is designed to repair a rectocele, a condition where the rectum bulges into the back wall of the vagina due to weakened pelvic floor muscles. This can lead to difficulties with bowel movements and discomfort. At Absolute Surgical Specialist, our surgeons perform rectocele repair using minimally invasive methods to strengthen the pelvic floor and correct the bulge, providing relief and improving bowel function.

Rectocele Grading

Rectoceles are graded based on their severity:

  • Grade 1: Mild bulge into the vagina, often asymptomatic.
  • Grade 2: Moderate bulge may cause noticeable symptoms such as difficulty with bowel movements.
  • Grade 3: Severe bulge, significantly protrudes and causes substantial symptoms affecting daily life.

Understanding the grade of your rectocele helps in planning the most appropriate treatment approach. Our specialists at Absolute Surgical Specialist conduct thorough evaluations to determine the severity and tailor the treatment plan accordingly.

Rectocele Repair Surgery

Rectocele repair surgery involves reinforcing the vaginal wall and pelvic floor to correct the bulge caused by the rectum. This surgery can be performed using different techniques, including traditional open surgery, laparoscopic methods, or robotic-assisted procedures. Our skilled surgeons at Absolute Surgical Specialist choose the most suitable technique based on the patient’s condition, ensuring effective and minimally invasive treatment focusing on rapid recovery and reduced postoperative discomfort.

Rectocele Repair Failure Symptoms

While rectocele repair surgery is generally successful, there are instances where the repair might fail, leading to the recurrence of symptoms. Symptoms of rectocele repair failure include:

  • Persistent or recurring vaginal bulge
  • Continued difficulty with bowel movements
  • Pelvic pressure or pain
  • Urinary incontinence or difficulty urinating

If you experience any of these symptoms after surgery, it is essential to contact your surgeon at Absolute Surgical Specialist for further evaluation and management to address the issue promptly.

Enterocele Repair

Enterocele repair focuses on correcting the small intestine’s descent into the pelvic cavity. This condition often occurs alongside other pelvic organ prolapses, such as rectocele. The repair involves repositioning the small intestine and strengthening the surrounding pelvic tissues to prevent future descent. Our surgeons at Absolute Surgical Specialist employ advanced surgical techniques to ensure adequate repair and long-term relief from symptoms, helping you regain normal pelvic function and comfort.
