A special form of pelvic nerve pain is deep infiltrating endometriosis of the sciatic nerve. This disorder is accompanied by excruciating sciatic pain - cyclical with the period at the onset of the condition, which becomes permanent after only a few short months. In addition, there are disruptions to or loss of mobility in the foot. The disease develops deep in the sciatic nerve and gradually destroys it. Hormone therapies do not bring about any healing. A surgical intervention must be performed immediately before irreversible nerve damage occurs. This operation is performed with the assistance of laparoscopy.
Careful diagnosis and therapy using laparoscopy
With the help of laparoscopy, the organic causes of chronic pelvic pain can be reliably and carefully determined and treated. The known causes of pain are adhesions, endometriosis and inflammation of the pelvic organs, but also a variety of diverse conditions. Through laparoscopic exploration of the pelvic nerves, irritations, compressions, injuries or tumours of the pelvic nerves can be diagnosed and treated minimally invasively. Neurosurgical procedures using laparoscopy are applied:
Pain reduction through electrical stimulation of the nerve
In the case of irreversible damage to the nerves, due to operation-related injuries for example or in the case of diseases affecting the nerves such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's etc., the mere release of the nerves will not have the desired result. In such cases, neuromodulation is the preferred method. A micro-stimulation electrode is placed directly on the damaged nerve by laparoscopy using the so-called LION method. Electrical stimulation of the nerve with low energy leads to pain reduction. By means of a remote control, the patient can independently determine the intensity of the current delivery. This method also enables the normal function of the nerves to be restored if the patient suffers not only from pain but also from functional disorders of the pelvic organs such as irritable bladder, faecal or urinary incontinence, or from sexual disorders such as erectile dysfunction in men or loss of libido in women.
To help people in difficult situations to improve their quality of life has become his life's passion. Continuous research, decades of clinical experience and the focused determination to find a solution for previously unsolved medical problems, have enabled Prof. Possover to help often quite discouraged patients find release from their seemingly insurmountable problems.

If it is your preference, your attending doctor is welcome to accompany you to Zürich. You will then have a person at your side who is familiar with your medical concerns. At the same time, your doctor will have the opportunity to be present during the planned operation and gain unique insights into the applied practice of Neuropelveology.
Neuropelveology is a medical discipline developed by Prof. Possover. It is based on the discovery of the pelvic nerves and includes the diagnosis of the diseases of these nerves by means of gynaecological examination methods and their treatment by means of laparoscopy.Read more
