My gynecologist suggested surgery to repair my rectocele and cystocele which I am seriously considering and which will be performed by her. She has 6 years of experience, including the pelvic floor disorders, she is very caring, gentle and confident person. I don't have long term gynecologist and this issues were addressed during my first ( annual) visit with her. My question is : Should I have my gynecologist perform the surgery or should I seek an urogynecologist to perform it?
Depending on the degree of prolapse present, cystocele & rectocele, and her level of experience, she may or may not be the best choice. I would suggest getting a second opinion from a urogynecologist in your area and compare the two recommendations.
