What sort of treatment is recommended for rectocoele?

Treatment for rectocoele should be undertaken by a gynaecologist or colorectal surgeon. 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. Often anorectal physiology studies are also required.
