On 27 November 2022, I presented my initial experience of 35 patients of Pectopexy surgery since 2015 for central pelvic weakness at the SASOG gynaecology national congress in Cape Town.

I thank my patients who participated in this clinical review.

I demonstrated a Pectopexy surgery on the 20th August 2022 at Pietersburg provincial hospital in Polokwane, Limpopo by invitation of the MEC for Health of Limpopo.
