Future Fertility of Women with Endometriosis
The Patient Outreach Program will focus on the overall quality of life issues for women with endometriosis and fertility problems.
The morning session will feature reproductive specialists and excision surgeons who will discuss preserving fertility by egg freezing and egg banking as a rational option for women who are diagnosed with endometriosis. They will also discuss the importance of timely surgical intervention for preserving the ovaries.
Quality of Life with Endometriosis
The afternoon session will include education and awareness on all aspects of endometriosis including discussion of symptoms that disrupt everyday life including pelvic pain, gastrointestinal discomfort, problems sleeping, painful sex and dietary issues. Additional topics will include; avoiding pain medication dependence, understanding the psychology of pain, the surgical options, natural remedies, hormone replacement and tips for seeking the best help.
Both sessions to be followed by an expert panel discussion and a Q & A.
Lunch will be served for participants.
Open to the public. Press invited.
Free of charge. Seating is limited and pre-registration is required.
Improving Your Endometriosis Surgery
Learn to Excise Peritoneum and Deep Nodules, Reconstruct and Repair Bowel, Ureter, and Bladder.
This is first ever meeting exclusively covering endometriosis excision surgery as a postgraduate course for improving skills. Endometriosis surgery in early stages of the disease can be as challenging as advanced stage surgeries because in the early stages there is often partial and improper treatment of the disease. This leads to a need for repeated interventions.
Endometriosis surgery is unlike any diagnostic infertility procedure or oncologic surgery. It requires meticulous surgical skills with experience to precisely remove all lesions, and it's generally a long surgery. Guided by microsurgical principles, delicate tissue is excised using scrupulous hemostatic techniques under magnification.
In the afternoon there will be a hands-on suturing lab with didactics and practice with faculty.
Lunch will be served for participants.
Postgraduate course is open to physicians, surgeons, residents and fellows
$100 Pre-registration required.
American Perspective on Endometriosis 2013
The last three years the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA) has successfully addressed three major chapters in endometriosis care beginning with "Stem Cells to Excision Surgery" in 2010, "Sex and Endometriosis, Seriously" in 2011, and "Endometriosis, The Next Generation" in 2012. Now, we are prepared to open an honest dialogue on the "American Perspective" -- examining where the American healthcare system currently stands on treating women with endometriosis and looking at opportunities to make it better.
How can we implement curriculum changes from high school to medical school?
How can we prevent the delay of diagnosis? How can we offer the best treatment?
How do we get American's to recognize endometriosis as a disease rather than a condition? How can we prevent "miss & hit" surgeries?
World renowned experts and master surgeons, together with scientists, will discuss their thoughts on these and many more questions.
