On many occasions I have heard excision surgery referred to as the 'Gold Standard' of endometriosis treatment.
I'm in North Wales and there isn't a hospital here that does excision surgery. I'm going to ask for a referral to a BSGE accredited hospital in England. This will mean securing cross - border funding which is notoriously difficult.
I'd like to go to my next appointment with my consultant armed with the facts regarding excision and the NHS view on it. Can anyone point me in the direction of an article/journal about excision as the 'Gold Standard' of treatment.
