Why choose Nuffield Health, The Vale Hospital for your vaginal prolapse repair surgery?

A vaginal prolapse is very common in women who have had a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). This is because the uterus supports the top of your vagina. Other causes include childbirth and hormonal changes in menopause. If your vaginal prolapse does not respond to conservative treatment, your consultant at The Vale may recommend vaginal prolapse surgery.

At Nuffield Health The Vale Hospital, located in the beautiful valleys of Glamorgan, our leading gynaecologists specialise in vaginal prolapse surgery, providing you with expert advice and a comprehensive treatment plan which is tailored to you and your women's health needs.

At our private hospital, patient experience is at the heart of everything we do. Our ultra modern patient facilities and excellent countryside views ensure that you are comfortable, relaxed and entertained throughout your hospital stay.
