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

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
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.

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
