Which One is More Effective to Remove Endometriomas: Sclerotherapy or Surgery?

Thank you for your question. Endometriomas is a type of  an ovarian cyst. Sclerotherapy doesn't treat that.  I would recommend for you to see your doctor (Gyn) to advise you on the best treatment. I hope this helps.

Sclerotherapy is used to treat veins

Sclerotherapy is a procedure of injections used to treat veins in the legs, face, hands, etc. It is not a surgery and does not remove tissue/cysts/etc. If you are suffering from Endometriomas, you need to see a general surgeon or OB/GYN. Sclerotherapy is not an effective treatment in any way, shape, or form.
