Specialists manage endometriosis frequently, and perform surgery 100% of the time. Getting diagnosed early, and getting treatment from a GYN specialist, can reduce the risk of recurrence. If one of your goals is to become pregnant, early treatment is essential since a delay in diagnosis can lead to progression of the disease, to infertility and to severe and chronic pain, which might even require narcotics to treat. Endometriosis excision is the gold standard in surgical management of endometriosis, and is critical for pain management.
