Surgical treatments used for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence (UI) have markedly changed in recent years. Concomitant with these changes, the patient-physician relationship has evolved over the last several years in large part due to patients asking for more information about their conditions as well as their desire to play an active role in the treatment decision-making process.
