Endometriosis Treatment

If you have endometriosis, tissue normally located in the lining of the uterus grows outside the uterus. It can be found on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, bowel and possibly other places in the pelvic cavity. Sometimes it can even grow outside the pelvis.

Endometriosis is one of the most common health problems for women. Symptoms are usually experienced by women in their 30s and 40s, but can occur in anyone who has menstrual periods. The exact cause of endometriosis is unknown, although there are many theories. Unfortunately, there is no cure for endometriosis but there are several treatments for the pain and infertility it may cause.

Common Symptoms of Endometriosis

If you have endometriosis, you may have one or more of these symptoms:

  • Cramps and menstrual pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Infertility - trouble getting pregnant

If your doctor recommends surgery, either endometriosis resection or hysterectomy, to treat endometriosis, you may be a candidate for da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery, which is offered at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts., and Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachusetts. Using state-of-the-art technology, da Vinci Surgery requires only a few tiny incisions, so you can get back to your normal activities faster. The da Vinci® Surgical System enables your doctor to operate with enhanced vision, precision, dexterity and control. da Vinci’s 3D, high-definition vision system allows surgeons to see key anatomy with immense depth and clarity, which is critical to removing deep endometrial tissue implants.
