AAGL’s Commitment to the Study and Treatment of Endometriosis

Released – March 22, 2021

Endometriosis is a common and complex condition affecting millions worldwide with significant impact on quality of life, fertility and our health care system.   The major challenges for those affected have been delays in diagnosis, lack of awareness and lack of access to high quality surgery and interdisciplinary care.

The AAGL and its members are committed to improving access to care, research, education and support for individuals and families affected by Endometriosis.   In order to achieve these goals, the AAGL is committed to elevating care quality among its members through our online programming, our Annual Global Congress, Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (FMIGS) and guidelines.    Advances in diagnostic imaging, medical therapies and surgical techniques are shared through our Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology (JMIG) and presented in our research programs.

Improving care for those with endometriosis takes a team that involves patients, families, health care providers and policy makers.

The AAGL is committed to elevating the conversation alongside all those who are fighting to improve the health of those in need.
