Pelvic Support Disorders

Many women’s pelvic organs change as they age. The pelvic tissues and ligaments may become weak as a result of age, pregnancy or childbirth. This may cause organs to slip out of place – for example, a uterine prolapse occurs when the tissues and ligaments surrounding the uterus are weakened, causing the uterus to slide down into the vagina.

Women’s Health & Laser Aesthetic Center provides diagnosis and treatment of pelvic support disorders.
