Recommendations for surgical treatment of endometriosis: deep endometriosis

The ESGE, ESHRE and WES Working group is proud to present the draft of the second recommendations paper on surgical treatment for endometriosis. The first paper in this series was published on ovarian endometrioma and was published in 2017. The current paper provides recommendations on surgical treatment of deep endometriosis.

The paper will be open for stakeholder review until 30 July 2019. We would like to invite you to submit your comments. 

We welcome every comment to the guideline: you can either look at the comprehensiveness, clarity and applicability of the recommendations, but you can also review the entire document in detail or only one section of special interest to you.


The procedure is as follows:

  1. Read the draft of the paper

  2. Submit your comments by completing the review form and sending it to
    Deadline: 30 July 2019.

  3. The working group will check your comment, and make a modification to the paper and/or formulate a reply. The names of all reviewers, their comments and the replies/adaptations will be tabulated in a review report, which will be published on the ESHRE website.


Thank you for your valuable feedback.

On behalf of the ESGE, ESHRE and WES Working group.
