Expertise and rankings

  • Experience. Mayo Clinic doctors evaluate and treat more than 900 people with uterine prolapse each year. These specialists have extra training in pelvic floor disorders and expertise in treating this condition, including repairing treatments done elsewhere.

If other medical problems are identified in an evaluation, an appointment can be quickly arranged with another doctor who specializes in that condition.
  • Research. Mayo Clinic doctors are continually studying how to improve the diagnosis and treatment of uterine prolapse. You benefit from treatment by Mayo Clinic's clinician-researchers.
