Profile Description

Nadim Hawa, M.D., Endometriosis Specialist, Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgeon.

City: Leesburg, VA, USA

Philosophy: Multiple factors. Combination of in Sito development and endometrial transplantation. I do not believe there is only one type of endometriosis. Different origins hence different differentiation, behavior, and clinical impact. Same as fibroid. Why you have one solitary fibroid vs the bag of marbles of a uterus. Different gene expression and different behavior.

Medication: Medication and hormonal suppression serve only to relieve symptoms but not treat the disease. By stopping the dynamic motion of the uterus with suppression, you limit the superficial peritoneal inflammation and cause symptomatic relief, but you will not affect the deep lesions. since they produce their own estrogen and pro-inflammatory mediators. .I use IUD and usually insert intraoperatively after the excision surgery if the patient e desires birth control. GnRH agonist/antagonist are harmful and I do not use them

Approach to Persistent Pain: Surgery alone is not enough. Pelvic floor therapy is as important as surgery, for long term recovery.

A second excision is usually advised.
