When a patient needs an Endometriosis, they undergo the most common procedure used to detect and treat any small or moderate case of endometriosis. What the doctors do is that instead of cutting through the stomach and working on treating the patient from there, or they can instead insert a small light instrument called a laparoscope through an incision. Not the entire job can be done with one laparoscope, so some doctors cut another extra incision or two to insert other surgical instruments.
Dr. Tamer Seckin, a New York based leader in Endometriosis care and surgery has gotten involved within the disease research by spreading the word and being the voice to all the victims suffering from endometriosis.
Needing an Endometriosis surgery will most likely be in order for a doctor to view your internal organs in search for any endometriosis signs or any other harmful diseases. The only way for an endometriosis to be detected is through the internal organs check up. It is never exact on whether the case symptoms are on point or not, but it is always better to be safe than sorry. Another reason why a doctor may check you for endometriosis is to remove any scar tissue resulted from implants or cysts. Those end up bigger than normal cuts and never fully heal right.
Endometriosis care and surgery can be a lengthy process to prepare for, therefore it is always best to go through the right steps to ensure a safe surgery and recovery. You will be told not to eat or drink anything for 8 hours prior to the operation. You will go under anesthesia which will knock you out cold until the operation is done. You won’t feel like anything happened when you wake up and the entire surgery doesn’t take any longer than 30 to 45 minutes. The procedure is done by a surgeon or a gynecologist.
The whole process is to check out your internal organs, and that can only be done in a few ways. What the doctor will do is deliver some gas through a needle instrument which pushes the gas into the abdomen which causes it to expand showing the internal organs clearly for the surgeon. After cleaning up the internal organs from any scar tissue, there may be a follow in a lazer beam treatment that cuts off any excessive scar tissue. After the procedure is done, the surgeon will stitch up the wound and prepare it for healing to leave no scars.
After the surgery is done you will require a day of rest in the hospital before being allowed to safely go back home to make sure the stitches healed correctly and you have no other problems to worry about. It will take you around a week to fully recover and be able to go back to doing normal activities.
Endometriosis surgery is done to remove any scar tissue getting in the way of the internal organs. Without the proper medical treatment, severe pain can be felt in the abdominal area and the bowl or bladder. Seeking medical attention is important if the symptoms apply to you.
