I was diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion Syndrome from laproscropic surgery in April 2012. I am in search of a specialist because the meds i've been on are not helping (been on them for about 4 months). My obgyn doesn't have any referrals for me that treat the condition and neither does my primary doctor. I had an appointment with a Urogynocologist this week but they just called to cancel because they don't treat this condition- they do other pelvic disorders. From what i've read online I should see an Interventional Radiologist BUT I don't know how to find one! I've looked that the interventional radiology website's list of doctors but when I call those doctors they don't treat the condition. I've also tried searching through my insurance's website under radiology and most of those are just radiology testing places. I have no idea how to proceed!
The fact that nobody knows what to do says that any local interventional radiologist doesn't have much experience with this because they generally are following orders from another physician. From NJ you would probably do better being seen at the Women's Center at Hahnemann.
