What is the Purpose of Endometriosis Surgery?

The core concept in the effective surgical treatment of endometriosis is the complete removal of all areas of disease from the body. If the endometriosis is not fully removed, any persistent disease may remain active, symptomatic and may continue to progress. If all areas of disease are meticulously removed, the chance of recurrence (new disease forming) is very low. Most patients will experience continued relief with no recurrence following the complete removal of their endometriosis.

Any surgeon who has dedicated his career to caring for women with endometriosis will understand that the primary method of treating this disease is via wide excision, as this is the technique best suited to effectively removing all areas of diseased tissue.
