Mayo Clinic surgeons have made many advances in minimally invasive colorectal surgery to treat rectal prolapse. These procedures usually result in smaller incisions, less bleeding, quicker recovery and shorter hospital stays than does traditional surgery.
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic doctors on rectal prolapse on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
