How to find us!

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a disease in which endometrial tissue grows outside the uterine cavity (for example inside the peritoneum, the ovaries, on the fallopian tubes, the bladder or the istestine). These extrauterine endometrial growths are subject to the same cyclical changes than inside the uterus. They first grow and then, during menstruation, try to find their way out. This is what causes heavy menstrual pain, pain during urination or defecation or during sexual intercourse. If the disease has been present for many years, it can lead to scarring of the tissue which can be a cause of infertility. A first suspected diagnosis of endometriosis is done by ginecological examination (ultrasound and palpation) and is then verified surgically. Endometriosis surgery can improve chances of natural conception and drastically reduce heavy menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea). Medical expertise is the key to avoid numerous surgical procedures which can destroy the ovarian reserve and therefore lower the chances of pregnancy. Our doctors are specifically trained for fertility-preserving surgery and work in excellently equipped operating rooms.
