The ROSE Study: Investigative tools for the study of endometriosis

Peter Gregersen, MD


It is a great pleasure to be here. 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.


We put together with the EFA what we are calling the ROSE study and that my thoughts about the goals of that study have changed somewhat over the year. We are now thinking in terms of these three main research goals; first to develop…

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. 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!

  • Sheena Wright

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.

My case was very aggressive and involved my urinary tract system and my intestines. After exhausting all of my local doctors I was lucky enough to find Dr. Seckin. We…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • Kristin Sands

    Like so many women who have tirelessly sought a correct diagnosis and proper, thorough medical treatment for endometriosis, I found myself 26 years into this unwanted journey without clear answers or help from four previous gynecological doctors and two emergency laparoscopic surgeries. I desperately wanted to avoid the ER again; a CT scan for appendicitis also revealed a likely endometrioma…
