Pre-operative consultation and tests

The patients need to arrive 2-3 days before the surgery. If an MRI is necessary, it will be performed either on the day before the surgery or 2days before the surgery. On the day prior to the surgery date you will need to perform pre-operative tests, you will meet the anesthesiologist for a consultation. You might meet Dr Mitroi for a clinical exam on the same day.

You will also do the pre-operative tests and you will be offered information about how to prepare for surgery. Consultations and pre-op tests are outpatient appointments and are done at Monza Hospital.

MRI

The MRI will be done at Medicales, a private clinic where Dr Livia Stanciulescu, our radiologist, is based. The written report of the MRI will be sent to the patient by email, after the examination. At the end of the MRI examination based on what was seen, Dr Stanciulescu will have a discussion with the patient. A mini enema (bowel prep) will need to be performed. You will receive all the information regarding the preparation together with the appointment confirmation.

One method of finding out more information about the extent of the disease and the organs affected is the MRI for endometriosis. This specific MRI consists in vaginal and rectal gel insertion, which have the role of distending the cavities to allow a better view of the organs. In addition to this, it’s also important that the MRI be done by a radiologist familiar with how endometriosis looks like.

MRI at Bucharest Edometriosis Center

The MRI is done by Dr Livia Stanciulescu and she is based at Medicales. The administrative staff will book the MRI. This is done a day or two prior to the surgery. Prior to the MRI, you will have a discussion with Dr Stanciulescu, then the procedure starts. At the end, Dr Stanciulescu will explain the results, she will give you a CD with the images andshe will send you a written report.

Please note that the insertion of the gel is not painful.
