In brief: Experienced
Most prolapse surgery is done by gynecologists specially trained and experienced in pelvic prolapse repair. Those who have chosen to do that exclusively are called urogynecologists.
This is a relatively new subspecialty and lots of very experienced prolapse surgeons are not urogynecologists. You should go first to your general ob/gyn for initial evaluation. Some urologists also deal with this.
