Investing in medical innovation: centre for endometriosis

Thanks to its innovative and multidisciplinary approach, the Leuven centre for endometriosis gained a place in the world ranking for endometriosis surgery. Endometriosis is a gynaecological disorder which affects an estimate of one in ten women and that can lead to pain and infertility.

Via a laparoscopy, patients are treated with a CO2 laser, which the doctor uses to remove the endometriosis tissue. Every year an average 200 women receive a laser treatment for endometriosis at UZ Leuven.
