The title of her talk “The Pain Mechanism in Endometriosis: Understanding the Neurobiology of Chronic Pain to Enhance Patient Care”, Dr. As-Sanie.

    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.…
