Progresses performed in laparoscopic surgery during the last ten years offer the possibility to do complex and difficult gynaecologic operations by laparoscopy, specially surgical treatment of genital prolapse, with interesting results. We report the main laparoscopic techniques to treat genital prolapse. It is clear that most of the laparoscopic procedures are the same than the classical operations performed by laparotomy. The main techniques that we report treat completely the pelvic organ prolapse (POP), without any vaginal scar, avoiding the risks of the dyspareunia in the sexually active patients.
