My dr doesn't think I have endometriosis but wants to do a laproscopy. Risks of this surgery? How can I be sure I have an experienced surgeon for this

In brief: Ask your doctor

Your doctor should explain all of the possible risks of doing this type of surgery and have you sign a pre-op consent form, that is called informed consent and is the standard of care, you can ask your doctor how many laparoscopies he or she has done and how many laparoscopies he or she has done for endometriosis.
