In brief: Very common

It is very common to do bladder surgery at the same time as a hysterectomy for patients with incontinence or a prolapsed (falling) bladder. A variety of surgical techniques can be used.

In brief: Cery common

It is quite common to perform support surgeries such as anterior repairs (bladder lift) and posterior repairs as well as vaginal apex support procedures (sacrospinous ligament suspension) and incontinence slings - all in conjunction with a hysterectomy.
