Endometriosis is Diagnosed and Treated at Mercy Medical Center
Endometriosis symptoms include:
- Pelvic pain
- Pain during periods
- Pain during intercourse
- Pain during bowel movements
- Lower back pain
- Excessive bleeding
Along with pelvic exams and ultrasounds, endometriosis is typically diagnosed through laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgery used to look at the uterus and surrounding areas for signs of abnormal growth.
The doctors of The Endometriosis Center at Mercy are among an exclusive group of physicians who utilize a special technology known as Narrow Band Imaging during laparoscopy to detect especially difficult forms of endometriosis.
