Pelvic Surgery

Are you having a hysterectomy or pelvic organ prolapse repair?

The pelvic floor muscles play an important role in supporting the pelvic organs (bladder, vagina, uterus and bowel). Starting pelvic floor exercises before your surgery can improve your outcomes. Our physiotherapists can provide you with a personalised pelvic floor muscle exercise programme and assist your recovery after hysterectomy and prolapse repair. We offer:
  • preparation and recovery from hysterectomy and prolapse repair
  • pelvic floor muscle training
  • advice regarding appropriate abdominal exercise and return to normal activity
