In brief: Depends on symptoms
Rectal prolapse is most common in older people, and treatment options take into account a person's medical fitness and suitability for operative treatment.
Abdominal surgery approaches have higher risks, but lower recurrence rate. Alternatively, resection through the perineum is lower risk, but has a higher recurrence rate.
