In brief: How

Repair of pop surgically may be done abdominally, laparoscopic, robotic assisted, or vaginally.
Most surgeons will have a preferred approach depending on training & experience. The fda warnings have caused many surgeons to stop using mesh by vaginal approach. However, those that have a lot of experience with transvaginal mesh have had excellent results . It matters more who does you surgery.

In brief: Vaginal surgery

Most prolapse surgery is done through the vagina.
The prolapse is from a hernia in the tissue that supports these structures and is usually from childbirth trauma. The use of polypropylene mesh is probably the most permanent repair, despite the fda warnings on mesh. Litigation attorney commercials have harmed mesh use, but it usually works the best.
