At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we are passionate about helping families who struggle with infertility build their families. Achieving a successful pregnancy requires the female body to be in good health. Conditions like endometriosis which affect the female reproductive organs can make it more difficult to get pregnant. However, we can offer you treatment options which help to overcome the challenges that this condition presents.
Although the exact cause of endometriosis is not clear, it results in endometrial tissue, which normally resides inside the uterus growing and implanting on the surfaces of the internal organs including the ovaries and the base of the uterus. Every month during menstruation, the tissue grows and bleeds resulting in inflammation, scarring, and pain.
Treatment for endometriosis associated with pelvic pain includes surgery by a laparoscopic techniques and CO2 laser. Dr. Mark Denker is a highly trained reproductive fertility surgeon who is competent in performing this procedure. New techniques, including robotic surgery, allow better visualization of endometriosis and increased ability to excise deeply embedded disease.
At Palm Beach Fertility Center, we have more than 20 years of experience providing these types of procedures. We are committed to providing you with effective and caring treatment.
Endometriosis can affect women in different levels of severity and symptoms. We understand that this is an individual condition and will meet with you to determine the best form of treatment that will be effective. You can rely on our Palm Beach fertility physician and staff to provide you with attentive and personalized care.
There is some controversy regarding the role of minimal and mild endometriosis and its effect on infertility. However, it still felt by most experts that moderate and severe endometriosis, especially in the presence of an endometrioma, impacts pregnancy rates significantly and that the endometriosis should be surgically treated prior to initiating fertility treatment.
Once endometriosis has been treated, it is important to quickly initiate therapy for treatment of infertility and/or suppressive therapy for treatment of pain. Endometriosis is a recurrent disease and there is a six-month to one-year window where the disease will be in remission after surgical treatment providing a window of opportunity.
