Learn about your treatment options from the experts in treating endometriosis
It’s March, so that means it’s Endometriosis Awareness Month. If you’re among the approximately 11% of U.S. women who have this condition, you’ve probably spent your fair share of time asking Dr. Google about it. However, for the best information about endometriosis, you should reach out to some different doctors. We’re talking about our Austin fertility surgeons.
Texas Fertility Center is home to highly trained surgeons who are experts in diagnosing, and most importantly, treating endometriosis. In honor of Endometriosis Awareness Month, we’re talking about the options that can help you overcome this condition.
Diagnosing and treating endometriosis often involves minimally invasive surgery
You might have heard that it’s difficult to definitively diagnose endometriosis. This is true unless a doctor uses a type of minimally invasive surgery called laparoscopy. We know that surgery isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time. However, this type of surgery comes with many benefits.
- Our Austin fertility surgeons diagnose endometriosis using laparoscopy. Not only that, but treating endometriosis is also possible during the same procedure. This eliminates the need for another surgery.
- Laparoscopy only requires two to three tiny incisions in the lower abdomen. This means there is a much lower risk of complications and scarring. You can also go home the same day and resume your normal activities within the next day.
- After surgery for endometriosis, women typically find relief from symptoms like pelvic pain and heavy periods. Treating this condition can also help resolve infertility, which can make pregnancy possible.
If you’ve experienced the pain or infertility of endometriosis, knowing relief is possible can be life-changing. Our Austin fertility surgeons are honored to be the ones to help you find it.
Get started on your journey to say goodbye to endo
The first step of treating endometriosis is having a consultation at our clinic. You and your doctor will talk about your medical history, symptoms, past pregnancy attempts and family-building plans. If endometriosis seems to be an issue for you, your doctor will likely recommend laparoscopy to confirm the diagnosis and treat the problem. From there, your doctor will work with you to help you bring home a healthy baby.
