Dr. Gabriel Mitroi,

He is a member of several gynecology and endometriosis medical societies and he has been trained in endometriosis surgery by Prof Wattiez, among others. He believes that the best method for endometriosis treatment is excision and that hysterectomy does not treat endometriosis- a hysterectomy is only indicated if a patient has adenomyosis of the uterus and there is no desire for fertility preservation.

Experience & Insight
Dr. Gabriel Mitroi is striving to understand the disease in all its manifestations. His groundbreaking work in excision surgery could lead the way to answering the most burning question of all: “What is endometriosis”.
Since the endometriosis symptoms come in such a variety, sometimes they have to be put together like a puzzle in order to figure out the bigger picture. Dr. Mitroi loves puzzles. Like a true medical detective he seeks clues in the patient’s history, he listens to them, and after putting the pieces together he is able to provide a diagnosis which eluded many: endometriosis.
“To surgically treat endometriosis, you need a few things: knowledge about the disease, a thorough knowledge of the pelvic anatomy and the ability to remove the endometriosis lesions safely from all areas/organs affected. Endometriosis can severely distort the pelvic anatomy and the most challenging part is restoring the abdominal/pelvic anatomy.
I understood early on in my career that endometriosis is a deeper and more serious problem than the medical community thought it was. I kept seeing more and more cases of endometriosis, most of them who had already undergone one or more surgeries, with no success. I started studying the disease along with the specialists who were pioneers and leaders in their field and I realized that I have a lot to learn and a lot to offer. I trusted my abilities and I was motivated by the large number of patients devastated by the disease who were desperately seeking a solution to the never-ending cycle of surgeries.
Endometriosis surgery is complex, and we can spend even 10-13 hours in the operating room for one case alone. These extreme cases of endometriosis require, along with continuous surgical training, a strong physical and mental capacity, as well as a dedication of the entire surgical team.
After we finish operating such a case, we feel tired but content and satisfied knowing that we managed to help another patient that was considered inoperable. Over time, this satisfaction is doubled by the fact that patients are feeling much better after surgery, even if their recovery after these complex interventions is sometimes difficult. I’m grateful to my team for their dedication and their professionalism.
Patients always have access to my email and to my phone number. I involve them in the treatment plans and I answer all their questions and concerns. Providing educational materials for my patients is an important part of my professional role. I work together with them and their families to develop an effective plan to help treat their condition. I take pride in my work and I maintain long term relationships with my patients by communicating with them and helping them manage their condition and to improve their lives.”
