Endometriosis Specialist/Surgeon in Washington DC area?

Hi - This is my first time posting, but I am certain that I have endometriosis. I have so many of the symptoms (pelvic, lower back and abdominal pain, bowel/gastro issues, horrible cramps, etc.). I am 39, but believe that BCP's helped suppress some of my symptoms for years until I had my last child (I was diagnosed about 10 years ago with IBS). I decided to get off BCPs and since, have been feeling awful. I am back on the pill (continuous Mircette), but still do not feel well. I would love to find an endo specialist/surgeon in the Washington DC/Maryland/Virginia area to get the endo excised. I am tired of feeling so awful. I would love to travel to a specialty center, but I have 3 young children and a part-time job. Thank you so much!!

To find one near you, I would recommend contacting the endometriosis association and ask them for a endo specialist or reproductive endocrinologist near you:

(Their contact info is on the bottom of their homepage)

I hope this helps,

Thanks to you both. I have heard of Dr. Seckin and of course how wonderful he is. I also contacted the Center for Endometriosis Care in Atlanta. I would probably end up staying in either place for about a week and am thinking Atlanta would be less expensive (depending on how much flights cost). Not happy that DC does not have a true endo specialist!! Thanks again - if there are any other suggestions, I am very open to them!!
