If you suffer from endometriosis, we can help reduce your pain and increase functionality.
We are pelvic pain specialists in Atlanta who offer quick, effective non-operative treatments for endometriosis and other pelvic conditions.
Having pain from endometriosis and other conditions in the pelvic area, such as pain during sex or when using the bathroom, is more common than you might think and affects about 1 in 7 women. Many go for years undiagnosed or misdiagnosed and undergo unnecessary medical procedures that can be harmful and expensive, without resolving their issues.
Living with the pain can severely affect quality of life, including physical function, psychological well-being, and interpersonal relationships.
On average, women with endometriosis make 7 visits to their primary care provider before being referred to a specialist.
Nearly 75% of women with endometriosis have had a misdiagnosis.
On average, women experience a delay of 7-12 years from the onset of symptoms to a surgical diagnosis.
Women with endometriosis average 2 – 5 surgical procedures related to their diagnosis, often with minimal sustained improvement in symptoms.
The difficult thing about endometriosis is that if it is suspected, the only way to diagnose it is by surgical excision with histopathological confirmation. Typically, a laparoscopy is performed to diagnose endometriosis, and often it will involve excision of the disease. Once the disease has been excised, management of the disease usually entails medication therapies, such as anti-inflammatories, hormonal suppression, and lifestyle modifications, such as behavioral health and nutritional approaches..
If endometriosis is suspected, and you would like surgery as a treatment or management option, our highly skilled surgeons can perform excision surgery, which is considered the gold standard, and involves cutting out the lesions, implants, or fibrosis (scar tissue) caused by endometriosis.
There are many ways to manage and treat endometriosis, which includes non-operative approaches, and approaches that do not include opioids or hormones if you are seeking this.
