Thank you for visiting Northwest Endometriosis and Pelvic Surgery, the practice of Dr. Nicholas Fogelson. We are committed to providing world class surgical care for women suffering from difficult gynecologic issues including endometriosis, heavy bleeding, and pelvic pain. Dr Nicholas Fogelson is a nationally recognized expert in minimally invasive surgery and endometriosis care, offering help to women with all complexities of disease. If you have struggled with pelvic pain, endometriosis, heavy bleeding, or other gynecologic or pelvic issues - we can help.
Affecting as many as 1 in 10 women, endometriosis is a common cause of pelvic pain and infertility, as well as less recognized symptoms of constipation, leg pain, fatigue, depression, and urinary complaints. While some women may improve on medications, the most effective long term strategy for treatment is surgical excision. Excision is a technique that removes endometriosis at its root, with far less frequent opportunity for recurrence than typical ablation offered by most physicians. Fellowship trained in complex gynecologic surgery, Dr Fogelson has been practicing excision technique for over 10 years, and is one of the few physicians in the country able to offer care for even the most complex cases of endometriosis, including endometriosis of the bowel, urinary tract, and thoracic cavities.
Do I need to have endometriosis to see Dr Fogelson?
Absolutely not. While there are many options for non-endometriosis care, Dr. Fogelson is one of Oregon's most trusted practitioners for all manner of gynecologic concerns including fibroids, urinary incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse, as well as routine gynecologic care. Our practice style allows us to spend ample time with each patient to make sure all issues are addressed to satisfaction, with a thorough plan for resolution, whether that be surgical or non-surgical.
Dr. Fogelson saved my life... literally. I had been to three specialists around the world. He is extremely talented in surgery and I wouldn't hesitate to put my life in his hands again. I will go to no one else.
