Antonio Rosario Gargiulo, M.D., Endometriosis Specialist, Gynecologist.
City: Boston, MA, USA
Philosophy: Etiology is yet unclear. Polypotential germ-cell origin is a promising hypothesis.
Medication: My first line is FDA-approved progestins and NSAIDs. I use GnRHa exclusively for adenomyosis patients in the setting of IVF.
Approach to Persistent Pain: Expanding diagnostic approach (uro, GI, neuro/ortho, rheumatology, psyche). Expanding physical therapy approach. Clinical reevaluation for possible residual disease or iatrogenic disease (hernia, adhesions). Pain service.
