Excision of Endometriosis
What is Excision of Endometriosis?
The da Vinci Robotic Surgical Team at The Endometriosis Treatment Center of America is specially trained in robotic excision of endometriosis. This state-of-the-art technology allows our team to perform minimally invasive surgery for OB/GYN patients with greater precision and control.
Excision (or resection) is when the lesions of endometriosis are completely removed, not leaving any damaged tissue behind. Excision helps maintain healthy tissue in the surrounding organs.
Once the damaged tissue is removed, the specimens are sent to pathology to rule out cancer and determine the extent of the disease.
Endometriosis commonly affects the uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes, which can seriously compromise fertility function for women. Since 50% of patients with endometriosis experience infertility, we have made it part of our mission to perform excision of endometriosis when patients still desire pregnancy to ensure that the pelvic structure is optimal to achieve pregnancy.
“We believe extensive excision of Endometriosis is the best option because it decreases the amount and time for any disease recurrence and eliminates a significant amount of pelvic pain that our patients experience.” – Dr. Jonathan Zaidan
