Endo and chronic pain are complex multisystem dysfunctions and as such need a multi disciplinary team (AKA you’re going to need different types of doctors and support on your healing journey) to find healing that lasts.
An important step in that journey can be finding an experienced surgeon who understands endo and has the skills to remove it with wide excision.
Before you start your search for an endo surgeon, there are a few things to know:
1. Currently endometriosis doesn’t have its own subspecialty (despite several advocate petitions to ACOG)
2. Since there is no certification technically here in the US there is no such thing as an “Endo Specialist” despite the use of the term in marketing by several general OBGYNs
3. There are some “Endo Specialists” around the world who have devoted their practices to endometriosis and have learned the surgical skills needed to remove endo lesions and adhesions with wide excision
