Endometriosis and pelvic pain affect as many as 1 in 10 women, and women are often misdiagnosed for years. This center approaches care as a unified team by providing Gynecology, Psychiatry, and Pelvic Floor care. The center seeks to improve early diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis and other pelvic pain disorders, and advance research progress through tissue sample collection and coordination of resources.
