Treatment for Enterocele Vaginal Prolapse?

I have just found that I have an Enterocele Vaginal Prolapse. Who do you recommend in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area who specialized in treatment of this problem? I read there are good clinics in NC who use the daVinci method - are there any in AZ you know of? Thank you so much...

Vaginal prolapsw can include several different pelvic organs- the bladder, uterus, small intestine or rectum. If you have an enterocele, it usually occurs in conjunction with either a bladder prolapse or rectal prolapse, and all prolapses are corrected together.
Robotics is a great tool, but using the robot to fix an enterocele is like scratching your left ear with your right hand- there's a more direct way to do it, that's less invasive: meaning through the vagina. And this way, the abdominal cavity is avoided. To have an evaluation for correction also means seeing someone who does them all the time- in Phoenix/Scottsdale there are some high operators, myself included- Matthew Karlovsky, M.D. www.urodoc.net

If you go to http://www.mypelvichealth.org and click on find a provider; you can enter the state you live in and it will list the urogynecologists for that state (they are the specialists for pelvic floor prolapse). Good luck!
