Endometriosis can take on average 7-9 years to diagnose. A general lack of awareness by both women and health care providers, due to a “normalization” of symptoms, results in a significant delay from when a woman first experiences symptoms until she eventually is diagnosed and treated. Endometriosis symptoms also mimic other conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, Crohns, appendicities, fibroids and other diseases.

The Center for Innovative GYN Care is the destination for modern minimally invasive surgery for all complex GYN conditions like endometriosis, adenomyosis and pelvic adhesions. Our state-of-the-art techniques make it possible to perform complex procedures using just two tiny incisions, so our patients recover faster with less pain.
Endometriosis affects an estimated 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years (ie. usually between the ages of 15 to 49), which is approximately 176 million women in the world. Endometriosis symptoms include painful periods, pain during or after sexual intercourse, heavy bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, fatigue, and infertility, and can affect general physical, mental, and social well being.
THE CENTER FOR INNOVATIVE GYN CARE ADVOCACY EFFORTS
The Center for Innovative GYN Care is dedicated to providing information and materials for women to help navigate the complicated healthcare system. Our minimally invasive surgical specialists have seen firsthand the pain and anxiety women with endometriosis face before getting a proper diagnosis, evaluation and treatment. We have also seen what delaying a diagnosis and surgery performed poorly can do to a woman. The longer a woman suffers with endometriosis, the likelihood of extensive damage to her reproductive organs increases.
