There are many causes of chronic and severe menstrual pelvic pain. Endometriosis is a condition that involves the abnormal growth of uterine menstrual tissue inside the abdomen and pelvis. This condition can cause severe menstrual pain which can interrupt daily activities and require a woman to take time off of work. In extreme cases it can leave her incapacitated for 5-10 days of the month.
Endometriosis can also cause sexual pain, difficulties urinating, and bowel irregularity. The treatment of endometriosis can be challenging. Many medical treatments exist, however they are often inadequate, short term, and can not be used in a women who are trying to become pregnant.
Although the condition is common, it is often misdiagnosed. The average patient may see multiple physicians and undergo a variety of procedures before finding a specialist that can treat the condition.
A great many women travel to the Texas Urogynecology and Laser Surgical Center from around the country seeking help for this condition.
Dr. Farnam offers laparoscopic laser excision of endometriosis. He uses advanced surgical dissection techniques to remove all of the pelvic tissue which contains the endometriosis implants.
The result for most women is a significant improvement or resolution of pain symptoms, and enhanced fertility.
