Rochester, MI (PRWEB) January 01, 2013
Endometriosis is a disease in premenopausal women that causes significant pelvic pain, irregular menstrual periods, painful sexual intercourse, and eventual infertility. In the past, a total hystectomy, including the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries, was thought to be the only effective treatment for the debilitating condition. Today, there are now minimally invasive ways to treat the disease and protect a woman’s fertility. Treatment with Zoladex (goserelin) is an important facet of this treatment.
Zoladex (goserelin) is an “implant” that is injected into the fatty layer of the abdominal wall on a monthly basis for a period of 6 months. Over 30 days, the implant suppresses ovarian activity, which in turn suppresses estrogen production. In short, Zoladex therapy puts the patient into a medical menopause. Over 6 months, the body gets a rest from estrogen, the “fuel” for endometriosis, and menstrual periods, which are the culprit of the endometrial implants which in turn cause the widespread pelvic pain. With estrogen suppressed, the body’s natural immune system can now clear much of the disease and what the body cannot clear in 6 months can be surgically removed with the Da Vinci Robot procedure.
According to Debbie Henry, NP-C, nurse practitioner at Women’s Excellence in Endometriosis, “The combination of the Zoladex therapy with the Da Vinci Robot procedure has given us great patient outcomes. We are changing lives.” Dr. Jonathan Zaidan, MD, founder and physician at Women’s Excellence in Endometriosis, is certified in the Da Vinci Robot and other physician partners are in the process of becoming certified in the procedure. Regarding the importance of Zoladex therapy, Dr. Zaidan replied, “I use Zoladex between the diagnostic laparoscopy and the robotic procedure. It (Zoladex) essentially ‘cleans up’ most of the disease so that I don’t have to remove very much when I go back in. I have been very pleased with it”.
