Endometriosis Center

Our doctors see patients in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

At NYU Langone’s Endometriosis Center, we understand the profound impact that endometriosis can have on various aspects of your life. The condition, which occurs when tissue from the uterine lining spreads and attaches to other pelvic areas, goes beyond mere physical discomfort—it can cause profound pelvic pain, especially during menstruation and sexual intercourse. Endometriosis can also impact fertility, sexual health, and overall quality of life.

At NYU Langone, our team understands these challenges. We know that the success of any treatment plan lies in focusing on you. Our treatment strategies address your symptoms and prioritize your personal health goals.

Diagnosing Endometriosis

When you first meet with us, we want to learn as much as we can about your medical history, including how long you have experienced symptoms and when they occur. We also perform a targeted physical examination to better understand the source of your pelvic pain. This thorough assessment forms the foundation of your treatment plan.

In advanced cases, endometriosis can spread to surrounding areas, such as the bowel or bladder. If this is suspected, we may recommend additional diagnostic measures. Our skilled radiologists, who specialize in endometriosis imaging, may conduct an MRI scan or targeted pelvic ultrasound to better understand the best treatment approach, which may include surgery.

Our Treatment Approach

If you prefer nonsurgical options and are not actively trying to conceive, our specialists can work with you to determine the most suitable medical treatment. This may include oral contraceptives, hormone therapy, and pain medication.

When surgical treatment is the best option for relieving your symptoms, you are matched with the surgeon best suited to your treatment needs. Our surgeons use minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgical techniques, to remove endometrial growths and scar tissue. These techniques rely on very small incisions, which result in faster recovery time and less discomfort. These procedures can increase the ability to conceive.

If endometriosis has spread to surrounding organs, we bring together a team of surgeons who ensure that every aspect of your condition is addressed with expertise and precision. Our commitment is to provide you with a holistic and personalized treatment journey that leads to a reduction or elimination of symptoms, promoting your wellbeing at every step.

Recognizing the debilitating impact of pain on both physical and emotional health, we offer advanced pain relief therapies, including nerve blocks and trigger point injections, to alleviate pain and reduce swelling and inflammation. Additionally, we can connect you with physical therapists who provide rehabilitation therapies to ease pelvic pain.

Our Support Programs and Services

At NYU Langone, our mental health providers, including our sexual health therapist, address concerns involving intimacy and the emotions that can accompany life with endometriosis.

The Leveraging Integrative Health in the Treatment of Endometriosis (LIGHTE) Program offers resources to help you manage the physical and emotional effects of endometriosis treatment. Our weekly meditation group, held in partnership with NYU Langone’s Integrative Health Services, promotes improved sleep, stress reduction, and overall wellbeing.

Patients can also benefit from other integrative health services, including the Mind–Body Patient Bedside Care Program during a hospital stay and outpatient services such as acupuncture treatment.
