By: Anthony G Visco, M.D.
AUGS is pleased to announce the release of Guidelines for Privileging and Credentialing Physicians for Sacrocolpopexy for Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP). The purpose of this guideline is to provide recommendations to assist health care institutions when considering granting privileges to perform sacrocolpopexy. Sacrocolpopexy for POP should be performed by surgeons with board certification or active candidacy for board certification in obstetrics and gynecology or urology who also have requisite knowledge, surgical skills, and experience in reconstructive pelvic surgery.
This document provides guidelines for surgeons requesting new privileges to perform sacrocolpopexy as well as surgeons who currently have privileges and are requesting renewal.

A special thanks to the American Urogynecologic Society’s Guidelines Development Committee for developing these important guidelines that were recently approved by the Board of Directors.
