Endometriosis is a complex disease of young women in reproductive age. It’s responsible for dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, chronic pelvic pain and infertility. Medical and surgical treatments have different aims. Hormonal suppression tends to stop natural evolution of the disease and surgery enables macroscopic excisions of endometriotic implants. Outcomes depend on the stage and the preoperative symptoms. This article summarizes a review of surgical management of endometriosis describing surgical indications, techniques, and outcomes in terms of pain and fertility.
