A team of Cleveland Clinic surgical specialists performed a robot-assisted procedure for a patient with a history of cancer and a complex case of endometriosis.
Cleveland Clinic specialists used robot-assisted surgery to perform concomitant pelvic and diaphragmatic excision for a patient with extensive endometriosis.
Surgical management of diaphragmatic endometriosis requires a cross-disciplinary team approach.
In patients undergoing surgery for pelvic pain or infertility, the excision of endometriomas increases proinflammatory cytokine levels, while surgery to remove peritoneal endometriosis has a neutral effect.
