The surgical removal of endometriotic lesions has been shown to reduce pain symptoms and in some cases improve fertility. Using the laparoscope it is possible to have a close look at all the pelvic and abdominal areas to diagnose and treat endometriotic lesions.
The main surgical techniques involve excision / removal of endometriotic implants or ablation / cauterisation.
Because endometriosis happens in different degrees of severity, its surgical treatment varies from small excisions of superficial lesions to extensive dissection of deep nodules and adhesions.
