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.

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