Diagnosis and treatment: surgery vs. no surgery?

Juan Salgado, MD

 

Thank you very much, good afternoon. Thank you to the…committee for their invitation and yes, I do look like Tamer Seckin. We do not know if we are brothers or not but we have one gene that is fight against endometriosis. We are together in that. We have to figure out who is the father.

 

I am going to talk today about endometriosis about surgery versus no surgery. This is my disclaimer.

 

First I want to start with a case that was presented by Dr. Maurice Chung the other day in Porto Rico. He was on vacation in Port Rico and I invited him to give a lecture to my residents. He started with this interesting case that really shocked me and made me more powerful to fight against unnecessary surgeries. This is a 29-year-old patient…with chronic pain pelvic pain after she had a trauma in her back.
