Questions to Ask Your Doctor

by | Posted on October 10, 2019

Some questions to consider asking your surgeon before undergoing laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis:

  • How many laparoscopies have you performed to diagnose and treat endometriosis?
  • How long have you been performing laparoscopic surgery?
  • Is it your intention to excise endometriosis at the time of the laparoscopy? If so, what method will be utilized (excision, ablation, etc.)?
  • How successful do you believe that method to be and why?
  • If the laparoscopy will be strictly diagnostic and no therapeutic measures will be taken, why?
  • Are biopsies going to be performed and sent to pathology?
  • Will you be assisted by other surgical professionals such as a bowel specialist to treat endometriosis in that area?
  • Will a bowel resection be necessary?
  • Will you search for and recognize endometriosis in all manifestations, and in all regions?
  • Will I be provided with copies of my surgical reports and any pictures or videotapes?
  • What do you expect to accomplish with the laparoscopy in terms of outcome, i.e., restoration of fertility and pain relief?
  • What is the general recurrence rates in patients you have treated?
  • Will adhesion barriers be used? If so, what kind? If not, why not?
