Welcome to the Endometriosis Treatment Center of America. If you suffer from endometriosis, you’re not alone. Endometriosis is a relatively common affliction, affecting 10 percent of women of reproductive age. Whether you’ve been living with endometriosis or another disorder causing pelvic pain, we can help.
Accurate diagnosis is key, so we take the time to fully understand what’s causing you pain. We then work with you to develop a treatment plan that will meet your needs.
Conditions We Treat
We treat patients throughout Southeastern Michigan from our offices in Lake Orion and Birmingham. At the Endometriosis Treatment Center of America, we provide comprehensive, compassionate care for endometriosis and related conditions, including:
- Endometriosis: An often painful condition in which the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus grows on the outside.
- Pelvic Pain: Acute and chronic pelvic pain can be caused by endometriosis, but can also result from a number of other conditions, including uterine fibroids and irritable bowel syndrome.
- Endometriosis-Related Infertility: Endometriosis doesn’t necessarily have to mean infertility. We’ll develop a customized treatment plan that increases your chances of becoming pregnant even with endometriosis.
- Painful Intercourse: Dyspareunia, or painful intercourse, can be a symptom of endometriosis and other conditions, and should be addressed by your physician as soon as possible.
- Abnormal Periods and Excessive Bleeding: Bleeding with monthly periods is normal, but abnormal and excessive bleeding can be a symptom of endometriosis, hormonal disorders, and other conditions.
- Interstitial Cystitis: Symptoms of IC and endometriosis are much the same; an accurate diagnosis is key to effective treatment of all sources of frequent urination and pelvic pain.
- Urinary Frequency and Incontinence: While often underreported due to embarrassment, we can provide multiple treatment options for incontinence.
- Vulvodynia: Vulvodynia is pain, burning, or irritation around the opening of the vagina. It can be one of the results of untreated chronic pelvic pain and can be incredibly uncomfortable.
- Allergies: Although a direct correlation between allergies and endometriosis has yet to be proven, allergies often accompany the condition. The Endometriosis Treatment Center of America offers testing and treatment of allergies.
- Bowel Endometriosis: Endometriosis can affect surrounding organs, including the bowel. Among the many symptoms of bowel endometriosis are painful bowel movements, nausea, and diarrhea.
- Uterine Fibroids: Uterine fibroids are another cause of pelvic pain and can produce the same symptoms as endometriosis.
- Ovarian Cysts: Most ovarian cysts cause no pain and go away on their own, but in some cases, cysts can grow large and painful, requiring treatment.
How We Treat Endometriosis
There’s not just one way. At the Endometriosis Treatment Center of America, we determine the best approach to treat your endometriosis, other causes of pelvic pain, or bladder control issues. Treatment methods include the following and many more:
- Robotic Excision of Endometriosis: This leading-edge, minimally invasive treatment method using the da Vinci robotic surgical system allows for greater control and precision when removing the lesions that typify endometriosis. The Endometriosis Treatment Center of America is specially trained and skilled in this form of excision. We have performed more of these procedures than any other team in America.
- Robotic Hysterectomy: This state-of-the-art technique results in less blood loss, fewer complications, less pain, and shorter hospital stays than traditional methods.
- Robotic Excision of Uterine Fibroids: This method of myomectomy may result in a lower risk of complications, a shorter hospital stay, and a shorter recovery period than traditional surgery.
- Bladder Control Procedures: We employ many procedures to best address bladder control issues, including Botox for overactive bladder treatment and minimally invasive surgery; we’ll work with you to find the best treatment method or methods.
