Endometriosis is a proliferation of internal layer of the uterus – endometrium – beyond its normal location. Normally, at the end of the menstrual cycle the endometrium is ready to accept an embryo, and if it does not happen, the endometrium falls off and to be removed from the uterus during menstruation. If endometrial cells spread beyond the uterus, the bleeding occurs in those locations, which is accompanied by severe pain reducing women's working ability.

Sometimes endometriosis can be cured by means of conservative medical treatment. Indications for surgery for endometriosis are the following:

  • If medical treatment is not efficient;
  • Endometrioid cyst of the ovaries, which results in pelvic peritonitis;

Endometriosis Treatment in Germany: Basic Principles

The main goal of the gynecologists of Friedrichshafen Clinic in Germany is to perform the total removal of endometriosis preserving, at the same time, reproductive function in women. There are 2 stages of endometriosis development:

  • 1 stage – local endometriosis appears;
  • 2 stage – extensive spread of endometriosis.

Unfortunately, in case of second stage of endometriosis, it is rarely possible to preserve fertility in women, as lesions can be removed only by resection of the organs (uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries).

In a first stage, endometriosis treatment is carried out by the following methods:

  • Lesions electrocoagulation: Endometriosis is fulgurated by electric current;
  • Thermocoagulation: The treatment is held by burning of pathology lesions;
  • Laser coagulation: The procedure of cauterizing of abnormal cells by laser.

Laser treatment of endometriosis is considered the most effective in Germany. The advantages of using a laser is low bleeding and high accuracy of the laser excluding damage of healthy tissue.

Depending on the localization of endometriosis, laparoscopy or endoscopy can be used for access to the lesion. Endoscopic treatment is recommended if abnormal cells are located in the vagina and cervix, and laparoscopic treatment is applied in case of pelvic endometriosis, as access to that area is possible only through the abdominal wall.

Endometriosis is considered as relieved, if a woman has not any symptoms of disease within 5 years.

Endometriosis Treatment in Germany: Laparoscopy

Laparoscopic treatment of endometriosis is a common standard in gynecology today. This kind of operations allows high accuracy removing of the abnormal cells without harming the reproductive organs of a patient.

Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique. The operation is performed with micromanipulators introduced in the pelvic cavity through small incisions (0.5 cm). Fiber Optic device transmits a clear enlarged image to HD screen, that allows you to detect even the tiniest endometriosis.

Laparoscopic treatment can involve the removal of pathology with laser or electrocoagulator. In order to completely destroy the endometriosis lesion, impact is held for a time sufficient for cell death.

Using laparoscopy it is also possible to remove endometrial cysts of ovaries, without causing harm to the body. Modern techniques in Germany allow performing laparoscopic hysterectomy, and endometriosis treatment of ureters and bladder.

In addition, dissection of adhesions formed due to abnormal activity of the endometrium can be performed by method of laparoscopy. Typically, such adhesions are detected in the fallopian tubes that leads to infertility, as blocked tube prevents egg from moving. Thus, laparoscopic treatment helps to restore female fertility.

In case of severe endometriosis with uterine lesions, it is often applied a conservative surgical treatment in Germany. It is aimed at alleviating the symptoms of disease. This kind of treatment enables a woman to carry and give birth to a healthy baby, and then assigned a radical disease treatment.
