Endometriosis is a very common, yet still mysterious cause of infertility. Even though the reasons are not clear, current thinking is that endometriosis decreases pregnancy rates by affecting the “quality” of the eggs being produced. The condition may also prevent the normal function of the tubes from allowing the embryo to reach the uterine cavity for implantation.
Surgical management of endometriosis can be difficult and complex. At The Center for Innovative GYN Care, we often treat patients who go on to conceive immediately after surgery.
Lower your Chances of Complications
The complete surgical removal of endometriosis is best handled by those who have advanced surgical expertise – they have complete knowledge as to how endometriosis spreads and the ability to remove endometriotic “implants” from difficult locations. At times, the surgeons at CIGC see patients who have had endometriosis surgery done by their OBGYN in which implants are left behind in the bladder, bowel and the ureters. Choosing someone without expertise in removing endometriosis can lead to severe complications, while the surgical experts at CIGC are well trained to remove and treat endometriosis safely and effectively.
Receive Advanced Personalized Care You Can Trust
Any patient with endometriosis considering pregnancy should consult a surgical expert in the management of endometriosis before undergoing surgery.
