So you think you have Endometriosis, what next?
Early diagnosis and treatment is key to preventing long-term complications or infertility. A laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) is the best way to diagnose and treat endometriosis. During your initial consultation, your gynaecologist will explain what to expect from the surgery. At Northside Gynaecology, we pride ourselves in using only the latest in technology, offering scar-reducing surgery techniques that will aid recovery and reduce the possibility of infection.
If you have questions or concerns about endometriosis, please call our office on 1300 780 138 to arrange an appointment with one of our female gynaecologists at Northside Gynaecology.
