      Dr. Cook says

      Dr. Cook's patients are followed up long-term to evaluate treatment success rates and to monitor their ongoing progress. Of all of our patients, two-thirds reported an ongoing reduction of symptoms of at least 75% and over half of our patients reported over 90% improvement in their pain.  In the vast majority of patients, a single laparoscopic surgery with Dr. Cook was sufficient in removing all disease without recurrence or need for reoperation.  Of all of Dr. Cook's endometriosis patients from the past decade, only 17% required repeat pelvic surgery and under 10% were found to have recurrent or persistent endometriosis.  We appreciate that surgery may only be one piece in an evolving puzzle to restore a patient's health. We therefore offer a range of individualized therapies in addition to surgery to help achieve optimal relief in all of our patients.  Many of our patients have suffered for years from this debilitating disease and have undergone multiple previous failed surgeries before coming to us. We are committed to helping you on your journey to recovery each and every step of the way, no matter what it takes to achieve success.

      He is the most kind, caring, compassionate doctor I have ever met. He truly cares and wants to genuinely help. He doesn't see his patients as dollar signs.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
