Sawsan (Suzie) As-Sanie, MD

It is now my pleasure to introduce our first speaker, Dr. Suzie As-Sanie. She is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Minimally Invasive Gynecology Fellowship in the Department of OBGYN and the Director of the University of Michigan’s Endometriosis Center. The title of her talk “The Pain Mechanism in Endometriosis: Understanding the Neurobiology of Chronic Pain to Enhance Patient Care”, Dr. As-Sanie.

 

Thank you so much to the course organizers, Dr. Seckin and Lone for inviting me to this tremendous organization and conference.
