Endometriosis patients face barriers to treatment with high out-of-pocket surgery costs

Blog

Waiting for treatment for endometriosis can prolong painful cycles, and many women are convinced that the only way to find relief is to pay tens of thousands of dollars out-of-pocket for surgery. Endometriosis is a condition that is misunderstood, even by OBGYNs. Endometriosis excision is the gold standard procedure for treating the condition, a technique that requires extensive training to perform. Selecting an endometriosis specialist is important for a thorough diagnosis, surgical treatment and long-term maintenance, but that can come at a steep cost if the provider does not accept health insurance.

“When it comes to this complex gynecological condition, finding a GYN specialist who is an expert in localized endometriosis excision and who can perform necessary bowel, bladder and ureter repairs is essential,” said Rupen Baxi, MD. “However, choosing a specialist should not evoke concerns about medical bankruptcy. Specialist providers who do not accept insurance are known to charge thousands of dollars above actual surgery costs, and patients are so desperate for relief, they are willing to mortgage their houses.”

Endometriosis experts understand how symptoms are linked and know exactly how to treat them effectively,” said Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD. “Superior minimally invasive endometriosis excision is covered by most major insurance. Ensuring access, the best endometriosis excision specialists are able to put patients first.”

Dr. MacKoul continues: “Incorrect removal of endometriosis can cause additional problems. This isn’t a condition that can be treated in an OBGYN office visit. Minimally invasive endometriosis excision is a specialty procedure that requires expert surgical precision as well as knowledge of techniques to prevent future scarring. It also requires an understanding of the patient’s long-term plans for fertility. Radical stripping of endometriosis can damage the delicate reproductive organs, which can be avoided with advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques.”
