7 Reasons Why You Should Choose an Endometriosis Specialist

From the Endometriosis Articles List

Why should I see an endometriosis specialist?Why should I see an endometriosis specialist?

Endometriosis is a complex and frustrating condition which can leave women with significant pain and quality of life issues. Though many doctors know about endometriosis and may periodically treat women with endometriosis, few physicians are endometriosis specialists–the experts when it comes to diagnosing and effectively treating this condition.

Finding an endometriosis specialist can be a time consuming task, especially since there is no actual endometriosis specialist sub-specialty. It can also be expensive and you may need to travel to one. Overall, it can be physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially draining to try to locate and see an endometriosis specialist, and as a result you may not feel the ends will justify the means and you are simply not up to the task.

Though it may take some effort and sacrifice on your part, below are 7 reasons why you should choose an endometriosis specialist who can help ensure the most successful and long term treatment success for you.

1. Experience.

Endometriosis specialists are physicians who have chosen to specialize in treating women with endometriosis. As a result, these doctors treat multiple women with endometriosis, and often they have treated a number of cases of extensive endometriosis. This gives them experience and familiarity with treating this complicated condition.

2. Methods.

There are a number of ways to remove endometriosis, but endometriosis specialists often perfect a method which allows them to be more successful. They can also use methods which can allow them to remove endometriosis from more areas, including the bowel and bladder. Perfecting removal methods can allow them to have lower rates of endometriosis recurrence in their patients.

3. Surgical skills.

Endometriosis specialists often have exceptional surgical skills. This can allow them to use successful methods for removing endometriosis while also offering minimally invasive surgery options. Perfecting their surgical skills can allow for higher success rates and few complications.

4. Knowledgeable.

As their focus is endometriosis, endometriosis specialists should have extensive knowledge when it comes to understanding endometriosis and its implications. They should also be up-to-date on the latest treatment options that are available, and they may even be involved with research involving new treatment options. Knowledge can allow them to explore cutting edge treatments as they strive to conquer this condition.

5. Understanding.

Because they treat a number of women who are affected by this painful condition, many endometriosis specialists have extensive understanding regarding how a woman’s life can be impacted by endometriosis. An endometriosis specialist can also be more understanding of the daily pain and quality of life issues that go along with an endometriosis diagnosis. Many of them are compassionate and validate their patients because of their extensive knowledge of this condition.

6. Quicker treatment.

Many women see a number of doctors and undergo a number of different tests and treatments when it comes to endometriosis, causing years of ongoing pain and agony that also costs a lot of money. Because of their skills and experience, endometriosis specialists can offer quicker treatment options as they are more familiar with the condition and what works and doesn’t work as a treatment. They may also be able to combine treatment options for quicker results. Their knowledge and experience can help you get treatment sooner so you can feel better faster.

7. Fewer surgeries.

Because of their extensive experience and surgical skills, the success rates of endometriosis specialists can be higher than average. Many tend to have very low incidences of endometriosis recurrence for their patients. As a result, you should need fewer surgeries which can minimize adhesions and trauma to your body.
