Endometriosis is a condition where cells similar to the lining of the uterus grow outside of it. It mainly affects the pelvic area and can cover the ovaries and fallopian tubes. It can also affect nearby organs like the bowel and bladder. It occurs in almost one in 10 women in the UK according to Dr Amer Raza.

In more than half of the cases, endometriosis progresses and leads to significant and debilitating issues, including problems with the bowel and ureter not to mention the constant pelvic and period pain.

About half of the cases involve the ovaries, potentially resulting in damage to the ovaries and affecting fertility. Many women worldwide suffer from this condition at different ages. But now with robotic surgeries and doctors like Dr Amer Raza, there might be more hope.
