Evidence based surgical management of endometriosis|
Bedaiwy, Mohamed A. & Barker, Nichole M.
The management approach to patients with pelvic endometriosis is multidimensional.
One must consider several factors such as patient’s age, parity, extent of the disease, and menopausal
status when planning treatment strategies. The main goals of therapy are targeted at symptom
control and achieving fertility in women who so desire. Medical and/or surgical therapies can
be considered in these patients. Individualized patient care is essential for the success of treatment.
In this review, we focus our discussion on surgical approach strategies and the management of
endometriosis with an emphasis on pain and fertility outcomes.
