1 in 10 women have Endometriosis  

Endometriosis affects approximately 10% of women. Endometriosis is associated with painful periods, pelvic pain in between periods, and pain with sex. It can also be associated with abnormal uterine bleeding. A strong relationship between infertility and endometriosis has been identified: about 40% of women with infertility have endometriosis. Inflammation from endometriosis may damage the sperm or egg or interfere with their movement through the fallopian tubes and uterus.

At USF Health, our health care team can help diagnose and treat this condition, which is caused when tissue in the lining of the uterus forms outside the uterus.  There are different types of endometriosis, including superficial endometriosis, deep infiltrating endometriosis, urologic endometriosis, gastrointestinal endometriosis and extra pelvic endometriosis. Different treatment options are available. Our specialized center offers cutting edge expertise in imaging and infertility treatment as well as advanced surgical approaches.

 Fertility sparing minimally invasive surgical techniques are available to help women find relief from the discomfort of endometriosis and optimize their fertility.

Treatment options:

  • Laparoscopic/Robotic excision of endometriosis
  • Laparoscopic/Robotic excision of Ovarian Cysts
  • Laparoscopic/Robotic Hysterectomy
  • Laparoscopic/Robotic excision of ovarian remnant syndrome

Medical management include: pain relievers (NSAIDs), hormones (birth control pills, progestin-only medications), GnRH agonist (Lupron) etc. We have a well-established multidisciplinary team for deep infiltrating endometriosis, including colorectal surgery, urology, and thoracic surgery.

By connecting with USF physicians in an academic medical center, you have access to a level of expertise unmatched in this region. 

USF Health expert Dr. Emad Mikhail explains the many aspects of endometriosis from health advocacy to treatments.
