Virginia Beach Obstetrics and Gynecology stands in solidarity with the African American community in condemning all racism, injustice, health care disparities, and discrimination. The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others have brought to the surface longstanding social and systemic injustice and discrimination that have been ignored and swept under the rug for far too long. We want our patients and our community to know that we see you, we hear you and we stand with you. We are committed to recognizing bias within the community, health care and in ourselves and strive to provide the best health care for all of our patients. Our mature population has seen and lived through so much and they deserve access to proper health care, housing, food and to live without the stress of discrimination. We want all of the babies we deliver to grow up in a world of tolerance, love, justice, and equal access to health care, education, jobs, freedom of religion, freedom of orientation, and the freedom to feel safe in America. Discrimination will not be tolerated and we will use our platform to help eliminate these disparities.
Anterior Vaginal Wall Surgical Management
Anterior Vaginal Prolapse Repair
A cystocele or bulge of the front wall of the vagina usually results in loss of support to the bladder that rests upon this part of the vagina. The goal of a cystocele repair is to elevate the anterior vaginal wall back into the body and support the bladder.
Unfortunately, this part of the pelvic floor is subjected to significant pressure with each cough or when picking up heavy things. As many as 1/3 of women will develop recurrent anterior wall prolapse after surgery.
Frequently patients with cystoceles will have a combination of defects on examination and often a combination of procedures will be performed at the time of surgery.
