What sort of treatment is recommended for enterocoele?

Treatment for enterocoele should be undertaken by a gynaecologist. It may either be surgical or conservative (non surgical).

Before any surgery is done, you should have a thorough investigation - including a Urodynamic Study - to ensure there are no other underlying conditions.
