For the past three years, the Worldwide EndoMarch has brought thousands of women, girls and their supporters from around the world to raise awareness about endometriosis. On March 19, 2016, EndoMarch will take place in over 50 countries. The Washington, D.C. march begins at 1PM at Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church, 201 4th St. SE.
The Center for Innovative GYN Care (CIGC), based in the DC area, is an active advocate for women suffering with GYN conditions. Our minimally invasive surgical specialists have seen firsthand the pain and anxiety women with endometriosis from around the world face before getting a proper diagnosis, evaluation and treatment.
“We have seen what delaying endometriosis treatment can do to a woman,” said Natalya Danilyants MD. “The longer a woman suffers with this disease, the likelihood of extensive damage to her reproductive organs increases. We want to provide information and tools for women to get an earlier diagnosis so that treatment can begin right away. If surgery is not performed by an expert, additional damage can occur if lesions are missed, or not fully resected, and if endometriosis is extensive, scarring from the surgery itself can occur within the pelvis.”
FIND AN ENDOMETRIOSIS EXCISION EXPERT
Minimally invasive GYN surgeons are trained to diagnose and stage endometriosis. These are specialists who only focus on treating complex GYN conditions like endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, fibroids, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts & pelvis masses, and who specialize in performing excision or resection of endometriosis and pelvic adhesions. It is essential that women suffering with endometriosis symptoms find an GYN specialist.
Though awareness is growing, endometriosis is still not well understood by many doctors. Learn more about finding an endometriosis expert.
CIGC ADVOCACY OUTREACH PROGRAM
Until there is a cure, it is essential that advocacy and research efforts like those mentioned above are expanded. CIGC works closely with endometriosis awareness organizations to ensure that women have access to support, and have the most up-to-date information about the best minimally invasive endometriosis removal options to manage pain, bleeding and infertility.
We partner with organizations to help end the stigma associated with many women’s health issues to ensure an open dialogue in the community and in the media.
JOIN CIGC FOR WORLDWIDE ENDOMARCH IN DOWNTOWN DC ON MARCH 19TH
CIGC will be supporting this event, and setting up appointments for women who want to find a minimally invasive endometriosis expert for endometriosis excision, removal of pelvic adhesions that can form from the disease, and talk about pain management.
