Abstract

Surgery for endometriosis and ovarian remnant syndrome represents some of the most challenging and complex procedures faced by pelvic surgeons. Although infrequently encountered by medical specialists other than gynecologists, the procedures needed to extirpate a retained ovary or free the pelvis of endometriosis often require the coordinated efforts of gynecologic oncologists, urologists, and colorectal surgeons. This chapter focuses primarily on the pathology, etiology, diagnosis, and surgical management of these two challenging conditions.
