Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the inner lining of the womb(endometrium) is found elsewhere, usually in the pelvis around the womb, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It is a very common condition, affecting around 1 in 10 women. You are more likely to develop endometriosis if your mother or sister has had it.
Many women suffer from pelvic pain which may be attributed to other conditions aside from endometriosis. It has been shown that women suffering from pelvic pain, regardless of the cause, go on suffering for years until they find the cause of it.
Dr Max Brincat has spent many years working with endometriosis teams in the UK and is passionate about providing women suffering with such problems holistic care. We appreciate that management can be in the form of many different approaches and will aim to tailor it towards the patient. We are also trained in tailoring the investigations to give the best chance of detecting and managing the cause of your symptoms.
