Choosing 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.
Women who suffer with endometriosis often have long, painful journeys to getting a proper diagnosis. The perception of pain as a natural part of monthly periods has affixed itself into the consciousness of so many people, including medical professionals, that far too often women believe it is something they have to accept as part of life. Pelvic pain is not normal, so when a period makes it impossible for a woman to get out of bed, or double over in agony, there is something physically wrong that needs to be addressed by a minimally invasive GYN specialist.
Endometriosis excision preserves the uterus, tubes & ovaries for women who wish to maintain fertility, or who have milder disease. The Center for Innovative GYN Care specialists Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD are advance trained minimally invasive GYN surgeons who specialize in endometriosis excision, fibroid removal, hysterectomy, ovarian cystectomy, pelvic adhesion removal as well as diagnosing GYN conditions that are often overlooked by general practitioners.
