A cystocele is the name for a hernia-like disorder in women that occurs when the wall between the bladder and vagina weakens, allowing the bladder to drop into or even out of the vagina.
The UCLA Urology experts in female urology are pioneering the latest surgical advancements in cystocele repair. Using a novel technique of interlocking sutures, they offer durable surgical cures without many of the problems associated with vaginal mesh for bladder repair.
Like other forms of cystocele repair, our innovative cystocele repair using interlocking prolene sutures (CRISP) is an outpatient procedure. Patients are able to go home the same day as the procedure and resume light-duty activity immediately.
