The surgical treatment of deep infiltrating endometriosis is challenging and complex. Currently, the gold standard for patient care is the referral to tertiary centers with a multidisciplinary team including gynecologists, colorectal surgeon and urologist with adequate training in advanced laparoscopic surgery. The surgical technique is essential to adequately manage the disease and to minimize the risk of complications; however, the technique is rarely taught and described in details. This paper reviews our current technique and all the tricks to allow the reproduction and even the improvement of this technique by other surgeons.
