Endometriosis, a prevalent yet often misunderstood condition, occurs when tissue resembling the uterine lining grows outside the womb, leading to pain, fertility challenges, and other symptoms. At East Obstetrics + Gynaecology, our specialist gynaecologists recognise the profound physical and emotional impact endometriosis can have on women’s lives. We employ a patient-centered approach to diagnose and effectively manage endometriosis through tailored treatment plans to alleviate symptoms and enhance overall well-being.

The diagnostic process may involve pelvic exams, ultrasound, and, when necessary, laparoscopic “key-hole” surgery. Treatment options and strategies are wide and varied, ranging from hormonal therapies to laparoscopic surgery, to the involvement of allied health care practitioners such a physiotherapists, psychologist and nutritionists. At East we believe in empowering women through education, ensuring they understand their condition and actively participate in health decisions in order to tailor a management plan to each woman’s individual needs.
