In brief: Two general methods

Rectocele is basically a hernia of the rectal wall into the vagina.
Many women have no symptoms from rectocele and do not need repair. Symptomatic rectocele can be repaired with sutures but comes back frequently. It can also be repaired with mesh. This technique may not come back as often but can have other complications.
