How to Treat Endometriosis

Posted Jan 07 2010 1:15am

When you need endometriosis treatment it is important to find somewhere which has access to:

  • Appropriate surgical or medical treatment expertise,
  • Pain management
  • Psychological support
  • Fertility advice.

It is always best to seek a specialist centre, one where you can find all the expertise in one place.  The Institute for Women’s Health at University College Hospital in London lead by Ertan Sardidogan has:

  • Gynaecological surgeons with advanced minimal access (keyhole) surgery experience
  • Colorectal and urological surgeons
  • Fertility specialists
  • Pain management specialists
  • Psychologists or counsellors
  • Clinical nurse specialists and sometimes complimentary medicine practitioners.

Surgical treatment for Endometriosis
Surgery is probably the most effective form of treatment for Endometriosis.  There is evidence that surgical treatment is effective in reducing pain associated with endometriosis and improving quality of life. Surgical treatment also improves chances of natural pregnancy in couples who have endometriosis associated infertility.

Medical treatment for Endometriosis

Some women choose medical treatment instead of surgery; medical treatment may also be necessary when symptoms persist after surgery or when surgical treatment is not possible or appropriate.
