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.

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%. During this time, I was preparing all my documents to send to Dr. Seckin to review. However, with this new information I put everything on hold and went to a urologist. After a few months, no one could figure…

    I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Seckin and his team before, during and after my surgery. I came to Dr. Seckin having already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis 5 years prior, with a different surgeon.

My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…
