The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, provides patients comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of gynecologic conditions and disorders. Our gynecologists are experienced and skilled in a variety of treatments including endometriosis excision surgery.
Our gynecologists primarily use surgery to treat endometriosis. Endometriosis excision surgery is a minimally invasive, laparoscopic surgery used to remove endometrial growths and scar tissue while preserving the uterus and fertility whenever possible.
Endometriosis excision surgery uses a thin, lighted tube known as a laparoscope and involves one or several small incisions in the abdomen. During endometriosis excision surgery, a small incision is made in the abdominal area and is used as an entry point for the laparoscope.
After the incision is made, the abdominal region is filled with carbon dioxide gas, which helps move the abdominal wall and any organs out of the way, allowing for better visibility. Additional instruments are then inserted through the laparoscope to cut and remove endometrial growths and scar tissue.
In some cases, surgeons may use diagnostic laparoscopy prior to endometriosis excision surgery in order to examine and diagnose endometriosis and other conditions.
Endometriosis excision surgery may be the best treatment option for many women diagnosed with endometriosis. Endometriosis excision surgery preserves the uterus and fertility when possible.
The gynecologists at The Institute for Gynecologic Care will use your medical history, risk factors and a thorough examination to help determine whether endometriosis excision surgery is a suitable endometriosis treatment option for you.
