The CSH Endometriosis Centre: Expert Care for a Complex Condition

The CSH Endometriosis Centre, accredited by The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy, is a leading facility dedicated to providing comprehensive care for patients with endometriosis. Led by Dr. Dani Hana, an expert in complex advanced laparoscopic surgery, the centre offers high-quality, evidence-based treatment through a dynamic multidisciplinary team approach.

Understanding Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a chronic condition affecting approximately 1 in 10 women of reproductive age. It occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus grows outside the womb, attaching to other organs such as the fallopian tubes, ovaries, and pelvic area. This can lead to severe pelvic pain, heavy periods, and fertility issues.

Diagnosis and Initial Assessment

Diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis often begin with a thorough medical history and physical examination. While imaging tests like ultrasounds can be helpful, laparoscopy remains the gold standard for definitive diagnosis. During this minimally invasive procedure, a thin camera is inserted through small incisions in the abdomen, allowing doctors to visualize and potentially remove endometrial lesions.

Treatment Options

Treatment options for endometriosis vary depending on the severity of symptoms and the patient's desire for future fertility. Non-surgical approaches may include pain medications, hormonal treatments like birth control pills, and lifestyle modifications. For more severe cases or when conservative treatments fail, surgical intervention may be necessary.

Specialized Surgical Approaches

The CSH Endometriosis Centre specializes in laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis. This minimally invasive technique offers several advantages over traditional open surgery, including smaller incisions, faster recovery times, and reduced risk of complications. During the procedure, surgeons can remove endometrial implants, scar tissue, and adhesions, potentially alleviating pain and improving fertility outcomes.

Recovery and Post-Surgical Care

Recovery from laparoscopic endometriosis surgery typically takes 1-2 weeks, though this can vary depending on the extent of the procedure. Patients may experience some discomfort, fatigue, and bloating in the days following surgery. It's important to rest and avoid strenuous activities during this time. Most people can return to work within 1-2 weeks, but full recovery may take up to 6 weeks.

Advanced Surgical Options

For more extensive cases of endometriosis, open surgery (laparotomy) may be necessary. This involves a larger incision and generally requires a longer recovery period of several weeks. In some cases, a hysterectomy may be recommended for women who have completed childbearing and have severe symptoms that haven't responded to other treatments.

Multidisciplinary Care Approach

The CSH Endometriosis Centre's multidisciplinary approach ensures comprehensive care throughout the treatment journey. This may include pain management specialists, fertility experts, and mental health professionals to address the various aspects of living with endometriosis.

Long-Term Management

Long-term management of endometriosis often involves a combination of surgical and medical treatments. While surgery can provide significant relief, symptoms may recur in some cases. Ongoing hormonal therapy or other medications may be necessary to manage symptoms and prevent recurrence.
