Uterine prolapse occurs when the muscles and ligaments holding a woman’s uterus in place weaken, causing her uterus to collapse into the vaginal canal. Prolapse of the uterus can be caused by difficult labor and delivery because of natural loss of estrogen as a woman ages or for other reasons. Choosing surgical or nonsurgical treatment depends on how weak the supporting structures around the uterus have become. Dr. Fan has unparalleled experience performing surgery to repair uterine prolapse and is often recommended by other doctors to perform this procedure.
