Pelvic Floor Disorders & Treatment

Conditions

At UVA, we provide a variety of non-surgical treatments and the latest robotic-assisted laparoscopic and other surgical procedures.

Pelvic Floor Conditions

We treat these conditions that affect a woman's pelvic floor:

Pelvic Floor Disorder Procedures

We offer these advanced pelvic surgery techniques: 
  • Advanced laparoscopy for pelvic floor support procedures, removal of uterine fibroids and polyps, lymph node dissections and hysterectomies. Your surgeon inserts a thin, lit tube through a tiny incision in the abdomen, which allows them to view the pelvic area.
  • Robotic surgery for repair of pelvic floor disorders, hysterectomy, fibroid removal and gynecologic cancer treatment. Surgeons use the da Vinci Robotic Surgery® technique, which uses tiny robotic hands and 3D imaging to ensure greater precision.

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a protocol we follow to help care for you before, during and after surgery. You're actively involved your own recovery process. 

ERAS helps you:

  • Recover sooner
  • Leave the hospital faster 
  • Have fewer complications after surgery

What is ERAS?

Components of ERAS include:

  • Pain management: We create a personalized pain management plan for you limit your opioid (narcotic) use.
  • Early mobility and feeding: The sooner you’re eating and able to move normally, the sooner you can go home. 
  • Preoperative Gatorade: Drinking Gatorade prior to the operation will help your body get the energy it needs to be ready for surgery. 
  • Fluid management: We will only give you as much IV fluid as you need to prevent fluid overload and bloating after surgery.

ERAS Patient Checklist

We will give you a checklist to track your surgery recovery progress. This helps us work with you to you track, monitor and manage your recovery.
