In brief: Surgery is the best

Option for treating rectal prolapse.
Currently one can have an abdominal approach using minimally invasive techniques with 3-4 small scars. Experienced surgeons will offer laparoscopic or robotic surgery as well as approached from the perineum or around the prolapsed rectum. In general, repairs through the abdomen last longer and are more durable then repairs from the perineum. See attached.
