One out of nine women undergo hysterectomy in the United States and approximately ten percent of them will develop vaginal vault prolapse ( a collapse of the vagina after hysterectomy ). The laparoscopic surgery assisted by surgical robots to fix vaginal vault prolapse is the latest option to the current open surgical repair. This was revealed by the researchers of Mayo Clinic. This new procedure has merits over traditional surgery, sacrocolpopexy performed till data.

They benefits are:
* Less recovery time and low pain.
* Requires, only overnight hospital stay rather than 2-4 days
* There is very little risk of post-surgery bleeding
* Women who are sensitive and may not tolerate the open procedure due to health issues are candidates for this surgery

With enough equipment and trained surgeons currently unavailable, the robot-assisted, laparoscopic surgery will be the main procedure done in the future for women with major vaginal vault prolapse. This procedure uses a robot to speed up the process and to simplify difficult aspects of the surgery such as reducing wrist strain involved in tying a large number of knots.
