Endometriosis Treatment Options

Treatment for endometriosis depends on the extent of the condition, symptoms experienced, and whether you want to have children.

In some cases of endometriosis, medications or NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may be used to relieve pelvic pain. In some women, birth control pills and other hormonal therapies have slowed the growth of the endometriosis.

For more serious cases, when medical and hormonal therapies fail, endometriosis resection surgery may be required to remove the endometriosis implants and the scar tissue caused by the condition. At Hoag, we offer the most advanced surgical options available for treating endometriosis, including minimally invasive options such as laparoscopic and GYN robotic surgery.

Hoag’s GYN robotic team has recently been recognized as Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) and is a leader in minimally-invasive robotic surgery. Hoag is committed to providing the highest-quality care to its patients through expert use of the da Vinci® Surgical System.

The combination of technological advancements provided by robotic-assisted surgery ensures the surgery is much easier to perform.

Additional benefits to GYN robotic-assisted surgery include:

  • Less post-operative pain and scarring
  • Decreased blood loss and lower risk of blood transfusion
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster return to normal activities​
