In brief: Laparoscopy
Minimally invasive surgery resection of the disease is the standard surgery.
A hysterectomy is not always necessary or even helpful.

In brief: Endo surgery
It can be diagnosed by either laparoscopy (belly-button) or laparotomy (open belly, ) and can also be treated (in principle) either way.
The extent of the disease and the doctor's comfort level usually dictates this.

In severe endometriosis, robotic assisted laparoscopic excision offers advantages to the removal of this disease in difficult pelvic locations.
