The CEC’s sole focus as a practice is on the surgical excision of endometriosis and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery for pelvic pain; we do not sell products or offer other services i.e. obstetrics, aesthetics, etc. We do believe, however, that multidisciplinary care combined with surgical excision as the cornerstone can facilitate a successful approach to living well in spite of endometriosis; i.e. nutrition, physical therapy and more. Thus we are very pleased to work with a complement of world-class colleagues, all specialists in their own fields, to offer total care to our patients. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may receive care with one or some of our colleagues when you come to Atlanta for surgery with us. We are also happy to offer general resources herein to assist individuals in finding additional care. Please note this resource is for informational purpose only and does not imply endorsement by or affiliation with the CEC. Practitioners we work/collaborate with or otherwise specifically refer to are so noted by the * symbol.
