About Endometriosis: a troubling disease affecting an estimated 176 million women and girls globally, endometriosis is responsible for causing pain ranging from mild to crippling, loss of countless missed work and school hours, infertility or pregnancy loss, bowel, bladder and abdominopelvic pain, sexual dysfunction, and many other physical, emotional, financial and intangible consequences. You can learn more about endometriosis in this comprehensive fact sheet here. But…endometriosis is NOT a hopeless disease. At the CEC, we believe quality excision of all endometriosis is the cornerstone of any effective therapy, and can offer long-term relief and restoration of fertility in many affected individuals.
Our Center of Excellence for the Surgical Excision of Endometriosis 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. Here at the Center, we believe the key to treating endometriosis is to surgically excise it – meaning, completely and meticulously remove all disease from all areas. We believe in removing endometriosis, not organs, as our preferred approach, and have successfully treated more than 4,500 women and girls to date ranging from mild disease to the most severe, complex and advanced stages.
Our surgeons are leading pioneers in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (MIGS) and have created a legacy in the gold standard care of endometriosis using Advanced Laparoscopic Laser Excision, or “LAPEX”, a technique limited to use by those few practitioners across the world who have dedicated their work to the treatment of endometriosis and who truly understand the disease. If you are interested in becoming a patient of Dr. Sinervo’s (Dr. Albee is not accepting new surgical cases), please click here to visit our main site, where you can register and learn more about our free records review. In the interim, please avail yourself of the information and updates we have provided herein. We want to help you live well – in spite of endometriosis – and we’re glad you’re here.
