Surgical Management

Surgical Management

A laparoscopy (key-hole surgery) will be offered to you to treat (excise) your endometriosis. Usually this is the option of choice if medical treatment of endometriosis is not effective in controlling your symptoms, if you have been found to have an endometriotic cyst (chocolate cyst) on ultrasound scan or if you have problems getting pregnant and therefore surgical treatment of endometriosis may be considered to improve your fertility.

If your family is complete and some of the other treatment options have been tried but you are still experiencing endometriosis symptoms, a hysterectomy with removal of both of your ovaries may be an option to be considered.
