Prolapse Treatment Overview
The most effective surgery for prolapse at this time is sacrocolpopexy. This surgery has the best long term results with good vaginal elevation 5-10 years after surgery and longer. No other method has been proven to be a more effective surgical treatment at this time.
Dr. Basinski is now a Board -certified urogynecologist (a specialist in pelvic organ repair) and performs this surgery with the da Vinci robot. In Evansville, she is the first physician and as of January 2009, the only physician to perform sacrocolpopexy with the robot. Over the past 12 years, Dr. Basinski has performed several hundred sacrocolpopexies in the Evansville area and has conducted research in the area of pelvic prolapse.
"Compassionate quality care. Knowledgeable staff. I had three procedures done with Dr. Bazinski. She is wonderful, she made me feel comfortable. Everything was explained before my procedure. She answered all my questions and was there for continued support."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Mar 18, 2017

"Saw Dr. Juran for the first time today and she is literally one of the nicest people I've ever met. I walked in completely uncomfortable and anxious and walked out feeling so much calmer and like my doctor really cared about me!!"- Y. / Wellness / Jun 29, 2017
"I moved her from NJ and found Dr. Juran and I am so glad I did. She is an extremely knowledgeable Doctor who listens to what you have to say and helps you make the best decision for your circumstances. Before and after my surgery, she was attentive and checked up on me periodically. Not only is she a great Doctor, but she is a sweet woman. The staff is great as well. I will continue to be seen by her and look forward to my visits."- K.T. / Wellness / Jun 19, 2017
"I have been seeing Dr. Juran for a year now after being referred to her office by 2 friends at work. I was having some major issues that had gone on for quite some time. I had seen another GYN and was so unhappy with every aspect of my treatment that I was ready to just 'live with it'. After calling Dr. Jurans office and explaining my situation they got me in to the office the very next day. After my exam we discussed options and chose a course of action. Dr. Juran told me not to worry, that she was going to have me better and she was right! She did not need 6 months of 'let's try this' or a half dozen consultations. She knew right away I needed help and she hopped to it! I have never felt better in my life and I have her to thank for it. I truly feel like she saved my life. I highly recommend this kind caring woman to anyone needing a GYN."- J. / Wellness / Jun 19, 2017
Sacrocolpopexy is a surgery that uses artificial mesh called Prolene to reconstruct the vagina. This tissue is very soft but also very strong. Dr. Basinski uses this tissue along the front and back of the vagina to repair your own damaged tissues and then connect it to your backbone or sacrum. This will elevate the vagina and orient the vagina in its normal position.
Sacrocolpopexy has the best results of all the known prolapse repair surgeries for sexual functioning and longevity. This surgery carries the same risks as all surgeries such as: injury to bladder, ureter, bowel and blood vessels; bleeding; infection; anesthetic risk. You will also need a full 6-8 weeks of reduced activity with no heavy lifting greater than 10lbs and no strenuous pulling or pushing over this time. After surgery the mesh is held in place by stitches. However, Dr. Basinski counts on your body to heal around the mesh and hold things in place for the remainder of your life. It is very important to not overdo activity after surgery, as you could breakdown the repair before your body has had time to heal it into place.
