Endometriosis Surgery in Boca Raton & Aventura

Treating Endometriosis to Enhance Fertility

Are you interested in finding a solution to help improve your chances of conception? If our fertility specialists at Palm Beach Fertility Center identify endometriosis as an underlying cause of infertility, it’s time to take action. You can rely on our compassionate team to ensure that you are fully prepared and educated on what to expect in your upcoming procedure. We understand that finding out you have endometriosis can surprise you, as many women do not experience any symptoms.

Internally, endometriosis may be causing inflammation, irritation, and potential blockages in the fallopian tubes. Fertility surgery to remove endometrial implants (growths) can help create a more fertile environment for pregnancy.

Using Laparoscopy to Diagnose Endometriosis

Endometriosis affects up to 10% of women in the United States, but not everyone is a candidate for surgical treatment. If you are trying to conceive and have either painful periods or otherwise unexplained infertility, then laparoscopic diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis is recommended. Even if you are not currently trying to get pregnant, you may be experiencing pelvic pain that can be treated very effectively with this technique.

Why Choose a Reproductive Endocrinologist for Endometriosis Surgery?

Dr. Mark Denker, our fertility specialist, is fully trained as an obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) with additional specialty training in reproductive surgery, specializing in the intricate systems of the female pelvic and reproductive system. His goal with any surgery or procedure is to enhance and preserve fertility.

A few facts about Dr. Mark Denker in this field include:

  • Dr. Mark Denker has performed over 2,000 laparoscopic procedures to diagnose and treat endometriosis concurrently.
  • As a fertility specialist, Dr. Mark Denker precisely removes endometrial implants, cysts, and scar tissue without compromising the integrity of the uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries.
  • Dr. Mark Denker is extensively trained and is certified in robotic surgery, as well as precision laser surgery that enables him to remove endometriosis and achieve optimum results.

What to Expect in Surgery & Recovery

Endometriosis surgery is minimally invasive and is performed under general anesthesia at Boca Raton Regional Hospital Outpatient Surgical Center. Dr. Denker will visit with you before the procedure and schedule a time to meet with you to discuss the results.

Our Palm Beach Fertility Center team provides expert assistance with questions you may have about insurance benefits, preparing for endometriosis surgery, and what to expect during recovery. Most patients can return to normal activities within two days of endometriosis surgery.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Endometriosis Surgery?

Women diagnosed with moderate to severe endometriosis benefit the most from surgical intervention. Dr. Denker uses leading-edge techniques, such as CO2 lasers, to remove endometrial implants that are deeply embedded in the pelvic organs. Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional open surgeries that require a large incision across the abdomen.

Advantages to laparoscopic endometriosis surgery include:

  • A shorter hospital stay and less associated costs
  • Less recovery time
  • Less pain during recovery

Although fertility treatment can be stressful, you can trust that we are here to take care of you and guide you through the process until you have achieved your goals. We genuinely want to give you the very best odds of getting pregnant. Untreated endometriosis can undermine even the most effective therapies and is best addressed before beginning a treatment regimen.
