Endometriosis: Dr. Natalya Danilyants and Dr. Paul MacKoul Warn of A Devastating Condition Affecting 1 in 10 Women

BBC article

Recent research reveals the extent to which endometriosis can wreak havoc on a woman’s life. Participants in the research, conducted by the BBC in coordination with Endometriosis UK, reported that the condition has negatively impacted every facet of their lives, including their abilities to pursue higher education, advance in their careers, and maintain successful relationships. Our own doctors Natalya Danilyants, MD and Paul MacKoul, MD, have diagnosed this debilitating ailment in hundreds of suffering women.

Endometriosis is shockingly common, affecting one in every 10 women. The symptoms of the disease include heavy periods and debilitating chronic pain, and women who suffer from endometriosis may also experience painful sexual intercourse and infertility.

In spite of the fact that it affects so many women, endometriosis is frequently misdiagnosed or ignored by care providers, with the average diagnosis time exceeding 7 years. Women whose symptoms are overlooked may turn to chronic use of painkillers, including highly addictive opioids to manage their pain. According to Dr. MacKoul, “there needs to be an emphasis on re-education for the OBGYN on endometriosis. Unless the OBGYN makes changes in the way patients with endometriosis and fibroids are diagnosed and treated, we will continue to see patients seeking surgical care from every state in the U.S. and throughout the world with debilitating bleeding, pain and infertility from this progressive condition”.

Choosing the right specialists for endometriosis removal is an essential part of managing the condition. If removed incorrectly, endometrial implants can continue to cause pain and affect fertility. Many women spend tens of thousands of dollars out-of-pocket for specialist care. At CIGC, we accept most major insurance, ensuring our patients can focus on getting healthy; not on how to afford the care they need. Further, at CIGC we listen to our patients and understand the toll that endometriosis left undiagnosed and untreated can take.

CIGC surgeons Dr. Paul MacKoul and Dr. Natalya Danilyants are trained in both advanced laparoscopic procedures and techniques, as well as training in Gynecologic Oncology techniques and practices. This gives CIGC surgeons a higher level of training and experience to deal with very complex cases of endometriosis. Our exclusive procedures were designed by our specialists, which is why so many women travel from around the world for DualPortGYN endometriosis excision.
