The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, is part of The Gynecology Center at Mercy. Our skilled team of physicians is experienced and skilled in a variety of advanced treatments including endoscopy and pelvic reconstruction.
Endoscopy and pelvic reconstruction is the combination of a variety of diagnostic and operative treatment procedures used to treat complex gynecologic and urogynecologic conditions and disorders.
Endoscopy refers to the practice of examining the inside of the body for medical purposes. This can be completed with a number of instruments that offer the surgeon a view of the pelvic area, such as a laparoscope or hysteroscope. Pelvic reconstruction refers to the surgical procedures used to correct structural disorders of organs and tissue within the pelvic region.
Endoscopy and pelvic reconstruction is used to treat conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse.
Endoscopy and pelvic reconstruction may be performed in a variety of ways depending on the type and severity of the condition. Your surgeon will typically diagnose your condition using an endoscopic device to view the pelvic area. After a complete endoscopic diagnosis is completed, surgery may be required to repair or reconstruct the organs and tissue that are affected.
When possible, surgeons of The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy utilize minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery to treat certain types of pelvic organ prolapse. This procedure typically provides patients with faster recovery times and less pain.
Patients who have been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse may be candidates for endoscopy and pelvic reconstruction. The gynecologists at The Institute for Gynecologic Care will evaluate the risk factors, your medical history and a thorough examination to help determine whether endoscopy and pelvic reconstruction is a suitable treatment option.
