External genital endometriosis is a disease that requires the timely integration of complex treatment and personalized rehabilitation technologies that allow not only to restore lost body functions, but also to improve psycho-emotional, sexual and social status, as well as improve the quality of life. The purpose of this review is to analyze modern scientific medical literature, both domestic and foreign, to systematize data on the use of new methods of patient management and rehabilitation. For all patients with external genital endometriosis, it is necessary to develop long-term management programs and full-scale restorative and recreational methods, as part of a multidisciplinary approach.
