Announcing EndoFound's Virtual Medical Conference: Reoperative Endometriosis

Announcing EndoFound's Virtual Medical Conference: Reoperative Endometriosis

The Endometriosis Foundation of America’s Medical Conference is in its 11th year and has always been a critical time for expert endometriosis surgeons, researchers, clinicians, and patients to come together to improve endometriosis care across the globe. This year, we’re thrilled to bring you experts from around the world to discuss the pressing question: Why can endometriosis return post-surgery? Endometriosis surgeons, researchers, and clinicians from around the world have put their heads together to discuss this critical topic in endometriosis care in order to educate patients and doctors alike. 

The Medical Conference is free and presentations by endometriosis specialists from around the world are now available to view. Dr. Dan Martin, for example, presents on research and clinical changes that have occurred in endometriosis recognition and treatment, including a discussion of three of the more than 20 anatomic areas where endometriosis is likely to be missed. Dr. Martin also offers suggestions on how to better recognize endometriosis in the bowel and how to avoid incomplete treatment. Dr. Marc Possover explores neuropathy’s role in reoperative endometriosis, Dr. Tomer Singer details egg freezing for endometriosis patients, and Dr. Pinar Kodaman shared tailored IVF protocols for endometriosis patients—among many more. 

There are still so many questions surrounding disease recurrence and the need for additional surgeries. Bringing together the leading scientific minds to discuss the latest science surrounding the disease leads to more answers. 

Don’t miss two live Q&As with the distinguished faculty on January 16 & 17, 2021, 11AM (EST). If you haven’t registered yet, please visit this link to access the conference videos.
