Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answeredTwo types of surgery have proven helpful in the fight against endometriosis. One is a minor surgery in which only displaced endometrial tissue is removed. Another type of surgery involves a hysterectomy in which the uterus, and sometimes the ovaries, are removed entirely.
Endometriosis is a condition in which cells that normally line the uterus are found in other parts of the body. Surgery is often used to help in the diagnosis of this condition as it permits direct visualization of the problematic cells. Additionally, surgery is often used in the treatment of this condition, as it is necessary to get rid of these problematic cells if they are causing the patient discomfort.
