Rectal Prolapse Repair

A rectal prolapse can be repaired and the rectum fixed back in place. There are 2 ways to repair the prolapse, either by a repair through the anus without external incision (Delormes procedure) or through an incision in your abdomen (abdominal rectopexy).  Nowadays the rectopexy can be done laparoscopically with 4 or 5 very small incisions instead of one large incision across your lower abdomen.
