If you are experiencing painful periods or pelvic pain, it’s important to see your doctor to get a proper diagnosis. Laparoscopy is the most common procedure used to diagnose and remove mild to moderate endometriosis. The surgeon can either cut out the endometriosis (known as excision) or destroy it using heat or laser. Although surgery can provide relief from symptoms, they can recur in time.
Endometriosisis a chronic, often painful condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus (called the endometrium) starts growing outside the uterus.
