(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Dubai Health Authority has launched a dedicated clinic in Latifa Hospital for diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis.

Dr Abdulla Al Khayat, CEO of Latifa Hospital, said: "Opening of this clinic is aimed to provide complementary diagnostic and therapeutic medical services to our patients and will help enhance female healthcare services at the hospital."

Dr Al Khayat highlighted the importance of having a dedicated clinic for the treatment of female patients suffering from endometriosis, a disease which affects about 10 per cent of women who are in the age group of 12 to 80 years.

Dr Ghassan Lotfi, Consultant in gynaecological and laparoscopic surgery at the hospital, said that endometriosis is categorised as a chronic disease which affects women in their reproductive age.

Endometriosis is a gynaecological medical condition in which cells from the lining of the uterus (endometrium) appear and flourish outside the uterine cavity. This subsequently causes chronic pain, adhesions and infertility. He pointed out that the disease affects seven to 10 per cent of women and is considered the third most common cause for hospitalisation of female patients in the age group of 15-50 years.

Dr Lotfi explained that symptoms of endometriosis include different types of pain in the lower back and abdomen during the menstrual cycle. Other side-effects include nausea, migraines and chronic fatigue. Moreover, the disease is known to cause infertility in 30 to 40 per cent of the affected women. Laparoscopic surgery is one of the treatment options for endometriosis. The surgery helps remove lesions formed by the disease.
