"Our fertility journey has been a difficult one, but we are grateful that through this experience we have met you and your team. I could not ask for a better surgeon. Your kindness and compassion gave me the courage and the strength to get through my first surgery! I will always remember the moment that you prayed with me in the pre-op room."
Layni C. in Oklahoma
"I am so grateful that I have found you and you were able to help me. I am looking forward to living a pain-free life. No words can describe how grateful I am but just know I am thankful for you everyday here on out. Please tell everyone in your office they were amazing to work with and made everything go so smoothly, especially being out of state. Thanks for everything."
Robyn I. in New Jersey
"As my 2-year ''surgiversary'' approaches, I wanted to send a big Thank You. I have come across many doctors and I must say no one compares to you. You treated me with such kindness and respect. You never doubted my pain! You validated me! Even at my post-op check you took my hands and told me I was going to be OK. You probably don't remember but I was a complete mess - my anxiety was out of control. You listened and heard. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for changing my life."
Gina B. in New York
"How can I ever ever thank you enough for all you have done for me. Not only are you an expert doctor meticulous in your field, but you have been so kind, patient, understanding and thoughtful. You have given me the time needed to comprehend the entire process of my surgery from the beginning to the end. You have validated all my concerns, worries and suspicions. You have given me my life back and I will never forget you as long as I live."
Elisa M. in Michigan
"I can't express to you how thankful I am to be getting this chance at not living in pain. Instead of being content with the standard ineffective treatments for this condition, you've invested the time and effort to truly deliver the best treatment for women. Thank you so much for applying your talent and time to this occupation."
Endometriosis is far more common than you might think - the disease affects 176 million women worldwide (nearly 1 out of every 10 women). The two main symptoms of endometriosis are pelvic pain and infertility.
The average time-to-diagnose for endometriosis is a shocking 8 years. Unfortunately, many current treatments focus on medicines that suppress (or mask) the disease rather than removing the disease. With endometriosis, this disease almost always persists, even when treated with medicines.
By excising ('excision' = to cut out) the endometriosis, the disease is literally removed altogether, providing long-lasting paid relief and restoring fertility. Surgery is performed with tiny incisions, and recovery is usually a short two weeks for most patients.
Common treatments for many gynecological conditions unfortunately focus on the suppression of abnormal function. Additionally, current treatments for infertility focus on the bypassing of abnormal function. These methods do not often last and rarely address the primary causes. Instead, they mask the underlying disease process. The CRRS has a more involved approach.
Restorative reproductive surgery at The CRRS will focus on evaluating for and treating of the root causes of disease - and then restoring the original reproductive function. In this way, patients not only feel better, but live better because their reproductive health is restored.
Surgery is not often discussed today as an option in evaluating for and resolving infertility. It is equally disheartening to witness women undergo years of infertility treatments without exploring surgery to help diagnose and treat the cause of their infertility. It's important to keep in mind that some abnormal fertility function can only be restored with surgery.
Highly potent fertility stimulation drugs do make an underlying disease process (e.g. endometriosis) progress at a higher rate, further decreasing the likelihood of pregnancy. Additionally, A woman's ovarian reserve decreases with each passing year.
Fertility enhancing surgery at The CRRS begins with a full surgical evaluation of infertility.
