Endometriosis Surgery

Endometriosis Surgery

Endometriosis is the growth of tissue that lines the uterus in other parts of the body. This tissue is known as endometrial tissue. Endometrial tissue typically grows on other abdominal organs such as the ovaries or fallopian tubes. These growths are called lesions and can be very painful. Additionally, these growths could make it very difficult for a woman to conceive. Endometriosis can be treated with medicine or with surgery.

Endometriosis surgery is performed laparoscopically and removes mild or moderate endometrial tissue. A surgeon makes a small incision and uses a small instrument called a laparoscope to view the affected area. Using a laparoscope will help the surgeon view the internal organs and confirm the presence of endometrial tissue. During the procedure, any visible endometriosis lesions will be removed, as well as any scar tissue or cysts that may have formed and could be causing pain. The procedure lasts less than an hour and will require the use of general anesthesia. Endometriosis surgery will have very minimal scarring and pain during recovery.
