Advanced Endometriosis Center NYC

Advanced Endometriosis Center NYC is one of the leading endometriosis treatment place in NYC areas.

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a common disorder that occurs when tissue similar to endometrial tissue abnormally grows outside the uterus.  Typically, this growth may appear on the inner lining of the abdomen, ovaries, fallopian tubes, vagina, intestines, bladder, uterus, belly button, and even in areas more distant from the uterus.  This includes places of old operation scars, the lungs, diaphragm, spinal canal, brain, eye, breast tissue, heart, arms, hands, and spleen.  The most common site, however, is on or in the ovaries (60-75%).

Why and how does endometriosis occur?

Although the cause of endometriosis is unknown, there are different theories that explain why endometriosis occurs.  One theory suggests that retrograde menstruation is a contributing factor. During retrograde menstruation, menstrual blood, which contains endometrial tissue, flows backwards through the fallopian tubes and into the peritoneal cavity.  If the body’s immune system does not respond, endometrial tissue attaches to the peritoneal membrane and creates nodules of endometriosis in the reproductive organs.

What is the frequency of endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a reproductive age disease that occurs most frequently in women in their 30s.  One in every 10 women between the reproductive ages of 15-49 experience endometriosis.  Endometriosis is uncommon for adolescents between 13-19 years old, but when young girls complain of severe menstrual pain unresponsive to painkillers, the incidence is 70%. Endometriosis affects 30-40% of women with infertility.

What are the risk factors for endometriosis?

Risk factors include:

  • too frequent menstruation
  • long menstruation
  • early age onset of menstruation
  • late menopause
  • white race
  • infertility
  • congenital uterine anomalies
  • blonde or brunette hair coloring
  • tall stature
  • a family history of endometriosis (three times the risk over those with no family history).
  • Diets rich in fatty food, meat, and excessive caffeine

What are the symptoms of endometriosis?

Before endometriosis is identified during surgery or ultrasonography, common symptoms are:

  • painful menstruation
  • painful sexual intercourse (pain in the groin)
  • infertility
  • constipation
  • indigestion
  • bloating
  • abdominal pain
  • discomfort in the lower part of the pelvis
  • menstrual irregularity
  • premenstrual “staining”
  • frequent urination
  • bloody urine
  • flank (side) pain

Endometriosis can also become asymptomatic, or quiet, from time to time, which can mislead one to think it is gone.

How is endometriosis diagnosed?

Evaluation begins, as in any disease or condition, with the patient’s complaints and personal history. During the pelvic examination, sensitivity, pain expression, and uterine and ovarian motion limitation suggest endometriosis. Occasionally during the speculum examination, blue-purple nodular lesions can be seen behind the cervix (the part of the uterus that crosses the back wall of the vagina). This emphasizes the diagnostic importance of including a speculum inspection during the pelvic examination.

Ultrasonography is the most informative non-surgical, non-invasive method of diagnosis. 

Definitive diagnosis of endometriosis is made by tissue biopsy via laparoscopy or laparotomy. During such laparoscopy or laparotomy, endometriosis may be categorized—considered either mild (Stage 1-2) or severe (Stage 3-4). In another classification, endometriosis is evaluated via anatomy into three groups—peritoneal endometriosis, ovarian endometriosis, and deep endometriosis. Although endometriosis is readily identified during a laparoscopy to visualize the internal abdomen, ovaries, etc., deep endometriosis may be missed when it involves the deeper pelvic tissues.

What is the treatment of endometriosis?

Endometriosis is not a disease that can be completely eliminated. The stage of endometriosis disease determines its treatment, as well as the two important factors of pain and infertility (desire for pregnancy).

There are 2 basic approaches in the treatment of endometriosis: medical drug use and surgery. The aim of medical therapy is to suppress endometriosis lesions, reduce inflammation, and stop the progression of endometriosis lesions by creating a low estrogenic condition. 

The aim of surgical treatment is to reestablish normal anatomy, separate adhesions, remove ovarian cysts with the least damage to the remaining ovarian tissue, burn endometriosis foci in the peritoneum with cautery, and remove deep endometriosis nodules. When treatment focuses on prevention, only endometriosis foci should be destroyed. Surgery should be avoided altogether in the very young because half of the women after surgery will return within one year postop.  However, medical treatment after surgery may delay re-emergence of symptoms.

Is endometriosis excision surgery well known?

The field of surgery endometriosis specialists is small, and those that perform excision surgery at the highest standard is even smaller. To truly become a specialist in the field, it takes years of training and experience to understand the complex disease itself and the advanced techniques such as robotic-assisted surgery.

Dr. Boz has performed several hundred robotic assisted excision surgeries and trains other medical professionals in the use of the Da Vinci machine. It is essential that a endometriosis surgeon has the proper skillset to not only remove diseased tissue but also to be able to sew and restore organ functionality.

Besides a relief from pain after surgery, it is equally important that the affected organs work properly. Because of the complexity of the disease, the surgical treatment required and experience needed prevents and deters many surgeons from performing surgery. Even with all of its hurdles, Dr. Boz is confident in his abilities, the emerging field, and all the specialists in it.

It’s always the word of mouth that’s the best advice. Here are some of our…

There are no words to describe the care Dr. Boz and his staff have given me. I am 2 days out of surgery (partial hysterectomy) and feel like a new person already. Dr. Boz has called 2 times to check on my recovery, I have never experienced that personal care with any doctor I have had. After 10 years of suffering from pain, multiple trips to the ER with no answers, I found Dr. Boz and was finally diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis. I had surgery 2 weeks later and I'm finally on the road to recovery! Thank You for giving me my life back!

I’m just so happy that I found Dr. Bozdogan and I can’t thank enough him for helping me. I always have very painful period to the point I pass out from it. Every gynecologist was saying it’s normal but it isn’t. Dr. Bozdogan from my first visit was amazing! He described with smallest details my surgery and what to expect after.He has amazing bedside manner and very professional! I highly recommend Dr Bozdogan if you suffer with endometriosis

From my first consultation, I could not be happier with the service I received from Dr.Boz and his staff.
Dr.Boz listened to me and my issues and asked questions and had honest answers for me. He is both personal and professional and I would highly recommend him to any woman who is having pelvic pain, endometriosis or other gynecological issues.

I’m thankful That my concerns were heard. Dr. Bozdogan is Very professional and easy to talk to regarding my fibroids. I got an appointment quickly, no wait time in the office, friendly staff, ultrasound in office to confirm my fibroids. He scheduled my surgery quickly and it was outpatient do I could recover at home. He answered all my questions and made sure that The fibroids were removed robotic surgery without removing my uterus so I could have more kids if I chose to.

Dr. Boz is a great doctor for endometriosis. He took his time to explain everything to me and show me what he wanted to look at. I just had my surgery with him and I have nothing but appreciation for him with the time he takes with me. I’m also feeling much better then I was feeling before. Thank you Dr. Boz!!!

Dr Boz was amazing with me and I'm so happy I used him for my surgery. I went for several Doctoredbefore deciding he was the one to perform my Myomectomy (fibroid removal surgery). From the initial appointment for diagnosis until the follow up after surgery he was there all away!I was able to text hI'm personally with questions if I needed and he put any anxieties at ease with all the reasons why he will do what he planned for me. He explained my procedure step by step very clearly and had a great bed side matter at the hospital as well. As for as the surgery went he preformed it with ease and with in 8 days I'm doing great and with nearly no scars.
