Endometriosis tortures people. It doesn’t kill them but there are times when you may wish it would kill you.
CBS news LA covers the story of Leslie Valladares, a former patient of Dr. Cook who had her life transformed following his specialized endometriosis excision surgery. Leslie had suffered for years with the crippling symptoms of endometriosis and had been unable to find relief, despite enduring surgeries and rounds of hormone therapy with several doctors. After exhausting all her options locally, she decided to travel to Los Gatos to undergo surgery with Dr. Cook, world-renowned specialist in endometriosis, and went on to make a full recovery.
We hope that Leslie’s courage in sharing her story will bring hope to other women who are struggling to live with the same debilitating symptoms.
