Garden OB/GYN Learns About A New Treatment Available For Endometriosis

In an effort to stay current with the latest treatment methods in the industry, this past week Garden Ob/Gyn clinicians learned about a new drug that may be used in the treatment of endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a condition that can effect fertility and cause severe pain. It occurs when uterus tissues grow abnormally. Approximately 1 in 10 women suffer from endometriosis.

The FDA recently approved a new endometriosis medicine, called Orlissa, that has been shown to reduce pain during menstruation and some pain outside of menstruation through way of reducing estrogen production. The medicine may a good alternative to over-the-counter medicines, opioids, hormone-suppressing injections and other typical endometriosis treatment measures that may have strong side effects.

Understanding the mechanism of action, indication, side effects and other details of this medicine will help our clinicians in providing the best care for our patients. They are able to make the most informed decisions and select the most appropriate treatment method for each individual patient.

If you have endometriosis or any other health concern, consult one of our expert clinicians to get the best treatment possible for your body!
