This April, Dr. Paul J. MacKoul, MD joins women worldwide in an effort to bring more awareness to adenomyosis. Many women suffer from this disease, however it is very hard to diagnose, and is often missed altogether on MRI imaging, because too many physicians do not know to look for it.
Adenomyosis, much like fibroids and endometriosis, can show symptoms such as heavy periods and chronic pelvic pain. However, unlike fibroid and endometriosis, adenomyosis can only be cured by a hysterectomy, so if misdiagnosed, patients may have surgery and still exhibit the symptoms.
Paul MacKoul, MD and the specialists at The Center for Innovative GYN Care, are leaders in minimally invasive GYN surgery, and perform approximately 400 surgeries a year. Whereas an OB/GYN generalist performs, on average just 27 surgeries. They are highly knowledgeable on the differences between each condition, so that they can give their patients the right diagnosis and therefore the right treatment.
