Bowel Endometriosis

Bowel Endometriosis Treatment in Mumbai, India

Endometriosis that affects the bowel is a type of endometriosis that occurs when endometrial tissue grows on the lining of the intestine or on the surface of the bowel. It is a serious and potentially painful condition that can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, and bleeding during bowel movements.

Laparoscopy is a common treatment for bowel endometriosis. During a laparoscopy, the surgeon will insert a laparoscope (a thin, lighted instrument with a camera on the end) through a small incision in the abdomen. The laparoscope allows the surgeon to see the endometrial tissue and to remove it or destroy it using lasers or electrocautery.
