The ROSE Study: Investigative tools for the study of endometriosis

Peter Gregersen, MD

I want to make it clear that I am a newbie and it is actually two years ago today, around today, that Tamer Seckin came to see me out at the Feinstein Institute and started educating me about endometriosis of which I knew virtually nothing. I have spent most of my career, actually all of my career, doing genetics of autoimmunity. I am a rheumatologist by training. It has been a great pleasure over the last couple of years to get to know a lot of the people in this audience and either in person or visiting them or by phone. For those of you who have hosted me I want offer my gratitude because it has been a great learning experience.

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great.

I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!
