The only way to accurately diagnose the existence of Endometriosis is by performing a laparoscopy which is an outpatient surgical procedure, introducing a Telescope under the Navel , under the Umbilicus - into the Pelvis.
Our feeling is that the most advanced treatment available nowadays is the surgical treatment with an Ultrasound wand which is called the harmonic scalpel. This will evaporate the lesions of the Endometriosis.
In addition to that in, very severe cases, we might need to add medical treatment.
The medical treatment relies on inducing temporary Menopause. This is induced by monthly shots, and this monthly shots would cause the Menopause, will deprive the Endometriosis from Estrogen, and thus might eliminate very tiny little Foci of Endometriosis, which cannot be seen otherwise through the Laparoscope.
Often, Endometriosis is accompanied by more sever damage in the Pelvis such as extensive adhesions, Tubal occlusions, large Endometriotic cysts inside the Ovaries.
Those require more highly skilled surgical interventions, so most of the studies show that if we can rid of an Endometriosis surgically, pregnancy will occur faster then if we treat it for six months of medical treatments first.
