Tips on finding a good doctor

Many doctors and gynecologists do not have a good understanding of endometriosis, and therefore have little experience in diagnosing or treating the disease.

 

It is unfortunate there are few doctors around the world who have specialized in endometriosis, but their numbers seem to be growing. This situation may be a direct result of the ever growing numbers of women around the world who talks & advocate about it and demand to be helped.

 

Ideally you would want to find a doctor who has an all encompassing knowledge of endometriosis, including:

  • surgical skills,

  • current understanding of various treatments,

  • access to the most modern surgical equipment and techniques,

  • openness to complementary approaches,

  • compassion for what you are going through
