Laparoscopic rectopexy is an operation in which sutures (stitches) are used to secure the rectum in its proper position using key-hole surgery. The surgery is performed to correct rectal prolapse–a condition in which the rectum loses its support–which may lead to several symptoms.


The term “laparoscopic” refers to the performance of surgery using laparoscopy. Laparoscopy enables the surgeon to complete the surgery through very small “keyhole” incisions in the abdomen. A laparoscope, a small, telescope-like instrument, is placed through an incision near the bellybutton.
