Anterior prolapse care at Mayo Clinic
Your Mayo Clinic care team
Gynecologists, urologists and urogynecologists at Mayo Clinic work together to provide expert care for women of all ages who have problems of the pelvic floor. Many of the urologists across all Mayo Clinic campuses have advanced training and subspecialty certification in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery from the American Board of Urology. Urogynecologists undergo three years of training in women's pelvic health and pelvic reconstructive surgery after completing four years of general obstetrics and gynecology training.
Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — care is discussed among the team, appointments are scheduled in coordination, and highly specialized pelvic floor disorder experts are all working together to determine what's best for you.

- Pelvic organ prolapse with or without incontinence diagnosis and treatment

Expertise and rankings
- Experience. Mayo Clinic doctors care for more than 1,500 people with anterior prolapse each year. These specialists have extra training in pelvic floor disorders and, in many cases, see only people with anterior prolapse. As a result, they have extensive expertise in treating this condition, including repairing treatments done elsewhere.
- Collaboration. Mayo Clinic doctors work together closely to diagnose and solve your problems. It's not uncommon to have an evaluation one day and corrective surgery the next, if that's what you want. 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 anterior prolapse. You benefit from those treated before you, and your treatment contributes to knowledge for the future.
