What type of surgery do you perform for endometriosis?:
Approach to Persistent Pain After Surgery:
I always continue to take care of my patients after surgery. There can be more than one pain generator co-existing with endometriosis. If pain persists post-operatively I re-evaluate the patient for other sources of pain, if not already recognized pre-operatively, such as myofascial pain, neuropathic pain, primary uterine pain, bowel and bladder related pain.
