As stated by Parsons and Sommers 40 years ago, endometriosis is one of the most fascinating diseases a gynecologist may face. Its clinical management, diagnosis and causes still remain somewhat of a mystery. This session will provide an overview of the most recent knowledge on the challenges faced when treating endometriosis, including symptoms, causes, diagnosis, infertility, stages of the disease, surgical and medical treatment options, and how endometriosis may influence the course of an ulterior pregnancy. The world-renowned expert faculty will review the different management strategies for the patient’s symptoms, including pain and fertility issues. They will also review how the stage and type of the disease influence the disease presentation.


At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) describe the signs and symptoms that suggest the diagnosis of endometriosis; 2) discuss how to achieve the diagnosis using appropriate tools; 3) detail the clinical importance of the different forms of the disease; and 4) explain the current medical and surgical strategies in the management of patients with endometriosis.
