Prolapse – When organs lower

Prolapse – When organs lower

It is still a taboo topic - but you are not alone with this suffering. Around 6,000 women are treated annually with the symptom known as bladder or bowels prolapse. It is often feelings of shame that prevent those affected from seeking advice.

Don’t hesitate to go to a specialist before you start to emotionally suffer from this affliction. Today's medicine offers many possibilities to alleviate or completely eliminate this disease. While most women usually undergo some kind of surgery, weak connective tissue can be strengthened again without surgery. However, you should not let too much time pass before you take action to regain your health.

What you should know about bladder or bowels prolapse

Prolapse (medical term) usually has its causes in weak connective tissue, which is often heavily burdened during births. Muscles and ligaments can no longer fully exercise their supportive function and organs such as the bladder, uterus or intestines lower and bulge across the vagina or through it.

The consequences can be very unpleasant, especially during a late treatment. Urine losses, incontinence, difficulty in defecating are the ones most commonly referred to. And of course, the sexual sensation, which is partly disturbed by shame and partly because of the pain.

If you are an affected woman, you should make an appointment now for further consultation. Call us at +41 61 666 62 10 Or write an e-mail to dr.wagner@basel-gynaekologie.ch

Relieving discomfort after bladder or intestinal prolapse

Medicine has made great progress in this area. In our institute we treat ladies for whom we can avoid the surgical measures. With targeted laser or radiofrequency therapy and collagen construction, the connective tissue is effectively strengthened. This usually allows surgery to be completely bypassed and you can enjoy your body and life again carefree and without any restrictions.

Typical ‘secondary symptoms’ of the prolapse, such as slight incontinence when laughing, coughing or sneezing, are also improved by this form of therapy with laser or radiofrequency waves.

Since this is not a typical intervention into the body with possible anaesthesia and surgery risks, no downtime or scarring is to be expected. This is a much better option for your health and well-being.

What you need to consider before using laser or radiofrequency therapy

During a laser therapy one should not wear a coil for contraception. During a radio-frequency therapy there should not be any implanted pacemakers or implanted hearing aids. Please also let us know if you have a herpes problem.

How does the therapy work?

After a detailed consultation, the treatment is carried out three times at intervals of 3 to 6 weeks. A renewed therapy every 8 to 12 months is recommended.

The treatment itself takes around 20 to 30 minutes. The radiofrequency therapy is completely painless. A possible light pain during laser therapy can be prevented with a cream for local anaesthesia.

A tugging feeling a few days after the application and possibly a slight discharge are signs that the treatment has worked and that your body is in a state of regeneration.

Which investments can be expected

We offer our customers this treatment at advantageous flat rates:

Laser therapy single treatment: 650 SFR

Radio frequency therapy single treatment 720 SFR

Unfortunately, the health insurance does not contribute to the costs.

During a consultation, we point out the individual needs and wishes, so that we can truly recommend the optimal treatment for our customers.
