Women with endometriosis are dealing with a chronic illness and need specialized care. We just felt that we could not give these patients adequate time and the quality of care that they really needed in a busy OB/GYN setting.
Birmingham, Michigan (PRWEB) March 05, 2014
Women with chronic pelvic pain (CPP) may likely have a condition called “endometriosis.” Endometriosis is a disease affecting the female reproductive tract in which the endometrial lining of the uterus spreads into the pelvic cavity, implanting itself on the pelvic structures causing inflammation and pain. Symptoms of endometriosis include painful menstrual periods (dysmenorrhea) which cannot be relieved with typical over-the-counter pain medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, irregular periods, pelvic pain, or difficulty conceiving a pregnancy. Untreated, endometriosis can lead to chronic pelvic pain (CPP), infertility, and disability in women.
Women’s Excellence in Endometriosis was designed to treat women with this chronic condition in a multidisciplinary fashion. Dr. Jonathan Zaidan has established himself as an expert in diagnosing and treating endometriosis. Dr. Zaidan is trained and credentialed in minimally invasive robotic surgery to treat endometriosis. According to Zaidan, “Robotic resection of endometriosis is the most advanced treatment for the disease and can even provide a surgical cure for some individuals. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means no large incisions, patient goes home the same day, and recovery is much easier.”
Endometriosis can only be definitely diagnosed with laparoscopy. “Once diagnosis has been confirmed, typically we start the patient on a six-month regimen of Lupron or Zoladex therapy, to help the body’s natural immune system clear as much of the endometriosis as possible, before going back into surgery for the robotic resection,” states Debbie Henry, NP-C, nurse practitioner at Women’s Excellence in Endometriosis in Lake Orion. “We have found this protocol to be highly successful for most patients,” adds Henry. After the robotic resection of endometriosis, hormonal suppression of estrogen is prescribed, in the form of a birth control option such as Depo Provera or a combined oral contraceptive, in order to retard a resurgence of the disease.
“Women with endometriosis are dealing with a chronic illness and need specialized care. We just felt that we could not give these patients adequate time and the quality of care that they really needed in a busy OB/GYN setting, sandwiched between routine OB visits and annual exams,” states Zaidan. “We provide such an inviting, calming atmosphere here at the endometriosis center, these patients are dealing with a stressful, chronic condition and the last thing they need is a long wait or a quick visit. We are able to provide longer patient visits at this center. Our patients really become like family to us,” Henry offered.

From the reception staff, to the medical assistants, to the providers, Women’s Excellence in Endometriosis’ mission is to provide timely, evidenced-based care, in a compassionate way. “We have helped hundreds of patients, we are eager to help hundreds more,” concludes Henry.
