Options for treating Endometriosis that are currently available in modern medicine, depend largely on the severity of the problem. The primary aim of all treatment is to help alleviate the key symptoms of pain and infertility.
Dr Ferry has performed thousands of laparoscopies and removed countless endometriotic lesions laparoscopically.
It should be remembered that for severe endometriosis involving the bowel or bladder, treatment needs to be given by "sub specialists", those who specialise in endometriosis. So for such severe cases Dr Ferry will promptly refer patients onwards, to ensure they receive the best possible treatment.
There are general points to be taken into consideration when helping to decide which treatment option is best suited for the patient. These include:
- The severity of the symptoms
- The type of symptoms
- The age of the patient
- The desire to get pregnant or not
- Length of treatment
- Coping with side-effects of drug treatment
