Endometriosis Surgery

Preparing for Endometriosis Surgery

Effective Fertility Treatment at Palm Beach Fertility Center

Are you interested in finding a solution to help improve your chances for conception? If Dr. Mark Denker at Palm Beach Fertility Center has identified endometriosis as your 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 2% to 10% of women in this country, but not everyone is a candidate for endometriosis surgery. 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 is fully trained as an obstetrician gynecologist 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.

What to Expect in Surgery & Recovery

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 imbedded 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
