To find an endometriosis excision surgeon that has been vetted by peer identified leaders in the field of excision:  LogoTextUnder

Creation of the internet has brought educational opportunities to the tips of our fingers.  A 24/7 access to information, interpersonal interactions with support groups, peers and those with similar interests.  Along with convenience, and accurate resources that are current and without bias are often difficult to decipher from resources that are inaccurate, outdated or biased.

Unlike many other health concerns, the reputation of many large institutes, commended for their work in fields of cancer, heart disease, organ transplantation etc, no such institutes can be commended for endometriosis care.  In fact, most large institutes and general health organizations with websites that present topics across the healthcare spectrum, are vastly outdated and inaccurate in their description and treatment recommendations for endometriosis.

Hence, a few, accurate, regularly updated websites are listed below.  These organizations, companies and individuals have consistently demonstrated commitment to provide up-to-date information with credible resources without sponsorship, endorsement or any type of subsidies from the pharmaceutical industries.
