endometriosis excision recoveryChoosing an experienced laparoscopic GYN surgeon has a direct impact on your endometriosis excision recovery. Endometriosis is an extremely complex condition that varies from woman to woman. The longer a woman has to wait for an endometriosis diagnosis, the more damage can occur. In many cases, women begin to experience symptoms from their first menstrual cycle, but are told that cramping can cause pain, so over time, many women learn to expect the pain and simply live with it until it escalates or until fertility is affected.


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 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.

Janelle“Not really knowing what the disease was, I did my research and realized that’s why I was always in so much pain. On January 30, 2012 I had my first surgery to remove my endometriosis by a regular OBGYN, not a specialist.”

Janelle later discovered that unless endometriosis is completely removed, it can continue to cause problems with fertility. It is a condition that is not well understood by the medical industry. Endometriosis experts are better at identifying and removing all lesions, endometriomas and pelvic adhesions (or scars) that can develop from years of inflammation. Not all OBGYNs are trained to recognize the symptoms or to thoroughly remove endometriosis. If lesions or damaged tissue is left behind, it can cause intense pain or infertility.

Janelle was referred to Dr. Paul j. Mackoul, MD, an endometriosis excision expert. If these conditions are identified and treated early there is a greater chance of conceiving and carrying a child to term. If surgery is necessary, minimally invasive GYN techniques make it possible for many women to begin starting their family sooner than with open, more invasive procedures.
