Collaboratives & External Resources
The CEC’s sole focus as a practice is and always has been, for more than 2 decades, on the surgical excision of endometriosis and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery for pelvic pain; we do not sell products or offer other services i.e. obstetrics, aesthetics, etc. We do believe, however, that multidisciplinary care combined with LAPEX (surgical excision) as the cornerstone can facilitate a successful approach to living well in spite of endometriosis; i.e. nutrition, physical therapy and more. We are very pleased to work with a complement of world-class colleagues, all specialists in their own fields, to offer total care to our patients. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may receive care with one or some of our colleagues when you come to Atlanta for surgery with us.
We are also happy to offer general resources herein to assist individuals in finding additional care.
