Advanced Microlaparoscopic Surgery for Endometriosis

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis refers to the presence of tissue resembling the endometrium or lining of the uterus, but located outside of the uterus. Endometrial growth is not restricted to the reproductive organs. In rare cases, it is also found adhering to the bladder, bowel, kidneys, and even the lungs.

Surgical Treatment

Laparoscopy is the most common procedure used to diagnose and remove mild to moderate endometriosis. Instead of using a large abdominal incision, the surgeon inserts a laparoscope through a small incision. Dr. Blaudeau will view the internal organs to look for signs of endometriosis and at that time remove any visible endometriosis implants and scar tissue that may be causing pain or infertility.

Surgical Outcome

Surgery relieves endometriosis pain for most women. But it does not guarantee long lasting results on all patients.

  • Most women about 70 to 80 out of 100 report pain relief in the first months after surgery.
  • More than 50 out of 100 have symptoms return within 2 years after surgery.
