Endometriosis Treatment

Endometriosis Treatment

Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that forms the interior lining of the endometrium or the uterus grows outside the uterus as well. Normally, the endometrial tissue that lines the inside of the uterus thickens, sheds and bleeds out of the vagina during your monthly menstrual cycle. However, the excessive tissue that grows outside the uterus gets trapped, leading to the formation of cysts known as endometriomas. Severe endometriosis is usually accompanied by painful cramps during menstrual periods and may also lead to fertility problems. It can be treated with laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis.

How is it performed?

  • The patient will be asked to fast for about six hours before the surgery with a strict intake of clear fluids only.
  • The procedure will begin with administration of general anaesthesia.
  • The abdomen is inflated with either carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide to separate the organs from the abdominal walls. This gas will be injected with a needle.
  • The surgeon will make small incisions on the lower abdomen and insert a tube-like hysteroscope to examine the organs.
  • In case the endometriosis needs to be removed, the surgeon will either cut the tissue and remove it or destroy it with electric current or laser.
  • The incisions are then stitched up or glued shut with little to no scarring.
