Based on the findings from your medical record review, your pelvic exam and ultrasound, surgery may be indicated to diagnose and treat suspected endometriosis. Dr. Cook has operated on thousands of women with endometriosis. His primary surgical technique is wide excision of all areas of abnormal tissue using the carbon 13 CO2 laser.
Two months after my surgery with Dr. Cook, I am finally through with my excruciatingly painful monthly periods, finished with pain during sex, and seeing huge improvements in my bladder function.
