Endometriosis is a common condition that can cause pelvic pain or infertility, and affects approximately 1 in 10 women. Our specialists offer effective testing for this condition, as well as a variety of options for its treatment and management, along with counseling for emotional support. Our specialists are experts in addressing both the physical and emotional challenges that can affect women with endometriosis.
While endometriosis can be a debilitating condition for women, it is not life-threatening. Still, the condition may disrupt daily activities and interfere with work, social engagements, or relationships. Chronic pain can lead to sleeplessness and irritability. In addition to the physical discomfort, patients may experience one or more of the following:
- Poor body image
- Lack of self-esteem
- Loss of sex drive
Our specialists offer medical therapies, natural therapies, and guidance in lifestyle changes to help relieve the pain and stress caused by endometriosis. In addition to our clinical services, we can help patients seek support from a counselor or a psychologist.
We have many options available to treat pain associated with endometriosis. Surgical options can remove endometriosis, while medical therapies can often stop the progression of the disease, cause it to regress, and alleviate the pain.
Endometriosis is also a known cause of infertility. There are medications, surgical procedures, and assisted reproductive technologies (ART) available to assist with pregnancy. These therapies are well established and highly effective.
