Written in straightforward, easy-to-understand language, with photographs and drawings, this 120 page book explains the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and potential outcomes for pelvic organ prolapse.
In this book, Dr. Hoyte uses the same explanations he discusses with patients who come to be evaluated by him at his Tampa clinic. After reading this book, you will understand what prolapse is, and will be able to understand the difference between the different types of prolapse (Cystocele, Rectocele, Enterocele, Uterine prolapse, Proccidentia). You will also learn how to determine if your symptoms are related to prolapse.
More importantly, you will also understand the different ways that prolapse can be treated, both surgically and without surgery, along with the “pros and cons” of each approach. Skilled in transvaginal, abdominal, and robotic methods of prolapse repair, Dr. Hoyte explains why he believes the robotic approach is one of the best available methods for treating prolapse. Also, he reviews his pre-operative and postoperative instructions and expectations for those women who choose to undergo prolapse repair surgery.
The book contains a list of frequently asked questions with answers, and a glossary, to help readers understand many of the words and terminology used in discussing prolapse. Dr. Hoyte gives links to helpful resources for women with prolapse and their families, including patient support groups, online discussion forums, and professional medical organizations devoted to treating prolapse.
This book is a “must read” for every woman who is diagnosed with prolapse. It takes the mystery out of pelvic organ prolapse, and will give all the information you need to make informed choices about treating your prolapse.
