Dr. Charles Butrick (Doctor Profile)
Question: I have urine leakage and a fallen bladder. Is surgery necessary? Does it work?
Answer: These problems are common, but never normal. A careful evaluation by a board certified specialist in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, also known as a Urogynecologist, often will find that no surgery is needed. Our office is the only office in the Kansas City area that offers a painless, non-surgical office-based procedure for vaginal relaxation, mild stress incontinence and mild pelvic organ prolapse called FemiLiftTM. There is no down time with this procedure. If surgery is required, as a board certified pelvic reconstructive surgeon, I have done thousands of these surgeries and have a greater than 85% success rate.
