Comprehensive Endometriosis Treatment in Snellville

Comprehensive Endometriosis Treatment in Snellville

Endometriosis is a medical condition where tissue similar to the lining of the uterus (endometrium) grows outside the uterus. This can lead to pain, inflammation, and the formation of adhesions or scar tissue. Treatment for endometriosis aims to manage symptoms, slow the growth of endometrial tissue, and improve fertility for those trying to conceive. 

This condition might feel challenging or overwhelming, but knowing there is a solution can bring a sense of hope and empowerment. You can embark on a path toward effective management and treatment by seeking a trusted obstetrical and gynecological specialist. 

Remember, you are not alone in this journey, and there are dedicated professionals ready to support you every step of the way, like Gwinnett OB/GYN.

Our Endometriosis Treatment Service

We provide a variety of interventions to manage endometriosis, which includes medication for pain relief, hormonal therapies to reduce the growth of endometrial tissue, and surgical options for those with more severe cases, ultimately aiming to improve quality of life and fertility outcomes when necessary.

Learn more about some common approaches to treating endometriosis:

1. Pain Medications:

Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve) can help alleviate mild to moderate pain. Stronger prescription medications may be recommended for severe pain.

2. Hormone Therapy:

Hormonal treatments aim to regulate or suppress the menstrual cycle, which can help reduce the growth and shedding of endometrial tissue. Options include birth control pills, hormonal IUDs, and hormonal medications like gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists and antagonists.

Progestin therapy, either in the form of pills, injections, or intrauterine devices (IUDs), can also be used.

3. Surgery:

Laparoscopic surgery is a common approach to diagnose and treat endometriosis. During this minimally invasive procedure, surgeons can remove endometrial tissue, scar tissue, and cysts.

In severe cases or when fertility is a concern, more extensive surgery such as a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) may be considered.

4. Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART):

For those facing fertility issues due to endometriosis, assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be recommended.

5. Pain Management Techniques:

Complementary approaches like physical therapy, acupuncture, and relaxation techniques can be helpful in managing pain and improving overall well-being.

6. Lifestyle Changes:

Regular exercise and a healthy diet may help manage symptoms and improve overall health.

It's important to note that the choice of treatment depends on factors such as the severity of symptoms, the desire for fertility, and the individual's overall health. 

The best healthcare provider will tailor the treatment plan to address the specific needs of each patient. Additionally, endometriosis is a chronic condition, and ongoing management and support may be necessary.

Here’s what our patients say about us

- Katie Brown

"I wanted to thank all of the doctors, nurse practitioner Mercy, and nurses for my prenatal care, several hospital stays, and the delivery of my twins. Dr. Iloabuchi was phenomenal and stuck with my birth plan all the way. 

My babies were delivered safely and she informed me of all the possible risks with delivering twins vaginally prior to delivery, and asked my permission for any intervention that might have been necessary for our safety. 

I was ready to give up when my 2nd baby was being born but her and the nurses talked me through that. Luckily (for me), no extra intervention was needed and I'm so grateful for both her professionalism and her compassion. Thank you so much! "

- Felicite

"I'm Felicite,' and I work in the Day Surgery Department here at Eastside. I'm sending you this email to give my gratitude to our wonderful Eastside Family. On the night of 04/05/2019, my daughter started to go into labor, and because I was confident in the care she would receive, I brought her here. 

Upon our arrival, everything was such a smooth process. I am also pleased to inform you that the Labor & Delivery Team were excellent!! My daughter was in labor for over 20 hours, and because of this team and their outstanding work, ethics, time passed by us so quickly. 

I want to brag about some specific nurses and doctors: Ashley, Natalie, Naneika, and Angela, Dr. Iloabuchi, Dr. Mojcik, Dr. Hirsh, Dr. Gilman, Shunta, and Liz. 

I am forever grateful for all of their hard work and kindness shown towards my daughter and me during the safe delivery of my precious grandson. I have never received such fantastic care from any other hospital.”

- Alison M.

"I've been a patient at Gwinnett OBGyn for 15 years, and I continue to be pleased with the care and the service. The doctors cared for me through a high risk twin pregnancy, and did an amazing job with my emergency delivery. 

I love doctors Hamidi, Johnson and Mojick, and am always happy with the staff as well. Many of the staff have been there longer than I have, which speaks so highly of how they treat employees! "
