Postoperative follow up is necessary following any surgical procedure and has been conducted in the same manner since the field of surgery began. The study will determine feasibility and patient satisfaction of innovative postoperative virtual clinical encounters utilizing mobile video conference technology for women undergoing pelvic reconstructive surgery through a randomized controlled trial.
This will be a prospective randomized control study comparing postoperative virtual clinical encounters versus traditional in-office postoperative visits in women undergoing pelvic reconstructive surgery. The postoperative experiences of both groups will be assessed via surveys. Virtual Clinical Encounter Group: - Receive video-conference call from office nurse 48-72 hours post discharge from hospital - Receive video-conference call from fellow and/or attending physician approximately 30 days (4-6 weeks) from surgery -- Complete telephone survey one day later - Have in-office postoperative visit with fellow and/or attending physician approximately 90 days (10-12 weeks) from surgery -- Fill out surveys after office visit Traditional Office Group: - Receive telephone call from office nurse 48-72 hours post discharge from hospital - Have in-office postoperative visit with fellow and/or attending physician approximately 30 days (4-6 weeks) from surgery -- Complete telephone survey one day later - Have in-office postoperative visit with fellow and/or attending physician approximately 90 days (10-12 weeks) from surgery -- Fill out surveys after office visit

Little is known about short- and long-term pain and functional activity after surgery for pelvic organ prolapse.
Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
The prolapse or downward displacement of the VISCERA.
The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
