www.endometrium.org is an educational resource for health care professionals. The conceptual framework, diagnosis, and management of endometrial disease remain controversial even amongst the most informed clinical practitioners and scientists. For this reason, opinions expressed are those of the author. Responsible medical management can only occur within an established patient-physician relationship. This site and the information it contains cannot replace that relationship, and patients are referred to their own physicians for all aspects of their care.
