Endometriosis is a troubling, often debilitating illness affecting an estimated 176 million individuals globally (WERF). It is a highly prevalent health condition characterized by ectopic growth of endometrial-like tissue in the extrauterine environment. The disease is responsible for causing pain ranging from mild to crippling; loss of countless missed work and school hours/presenteeism; infertility/pregnancy loss; bowel and/or bladder pain; sexual pain/dysfunction and various other physical, emotional, financial and intangible consequences. Visit our comprehensive fact sheet on endometriosis here to learn more. Endometriosis does not have to be hopeless! At the CEC, Dr. Sinervo, Dr. Albee and Dr. Kongoasa believe quality excision surgery is the cornerstone of any effective management approach, and can offer long-term relief and restoration of fertility in many affected individuals.

Historically, excision has always been the gold standard of surgical treatment for this disease, but unfortunately is only practiced by a small number of global surgeons who have dedicated their life’s work to successful and advanced treatment of the disease. Surgical excision is the cornerstone of any effective, multidisciplinary therapy for endometriosis. Our COEMIG-designated Center of Excellence has been successfully helping thousands of patients of all ages, from every corner of the world, to regain their quality of life for nearly two and a half decades.

We want to help you live well – in spite of endometriosis – and we’re glad you’re here.
