Laparoscopic excision of endometriosis

The endometrium is the tissue that lines the uterus. When a woman has endometriosis, the tissue that looks and acts like the lining of the uterus grows outside of the uterus in other surrounding areas of the body. Usually these growths are not cancerous.

Endometriosis can cause severe bleeding, pain and infertility. Your gynecologist may recommend surgery as a treatment option. With advances in surgical techniques, surgery for the treatment of endometriosis can be highly successful and treat the pain and fertility issues caused by the condition.

Robotic Assisted laparoscopic excision of endometriosis

Robotic Assisted laparoscopic excision of endometriosis can be used to diagnose and treat endometriosis. During this surgery, doctors remove growths and scar tissue or destroy them with intense heat. The goal is to treat the endometriosis without harming the healthy tissue of the uterus around the abnormal growths.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for the treatment of endometriosis

Robotic Assisted gynecological surgery is the least invasive kind of surgery to treat endometriosis. With the robotic assistance, surgeons may repair the lining of the uterus through small incisions with unmatched precision and control. Learn more about our Surgical Expertise.
