Research Insights: Endometriosis and Infertility

Recent studies emphasize the significant overlap between endometriosis and unexplained infertility, underscoring the importance of specialized evaluation and care for these complex conditions. In a recent study involving 215 women with unexplained infertility, over 90% were diagnosed with endometriosis following comprehensive testing. This finding highlights how endometriosis, a condition where tissue similar to the uterine lining grows outside the uterus, may impact fertility.

As a specialist in endometriosis, pelvic pain, and sexual health, Dr. Lucas understands the importance of early diagnosis and tailored treatment in managing endometriosis and how it may contribute to infertility. His approach focuses on minimally invasive surgical techniques and personalized care plans, including medicinal and holistic therapies for endometriosis, ensuring patients receive effective treatments that address both their symptoms and broader health needs/preferences.

Laparoscopic Excision for Endometriosis and Infertility

In cases of unexplained infertility, laparoscopic biopsies have revealed endometriosis in approximately 90.7% of women. This underscores the importance of accurate diagnosis and treatment. At the New England Center for Pelvic Health, Dr. Lucas specializes in laparoscopic excision of endometriosis, a minimally invasive technique that is crucial for diagnosing and treating this condition.

Procedure Details

Laparoscopic excision involves using a small camera and specialized instruments to remove endometrial-like tissue from areas outside the uterus. This precision surgery offers benefits like smaller incisions, quicker recovery times, and less pain.  Addressing endometriosis and pelvic pain may help with addressing infertility.
