EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

Welcome

Stacey Rosen, MD

 

Good morning everyone and welcome to the third day of EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference. I will let everyone get their coffee and join us for what will be a great morning and then a great afternoon.

 

I am Dr. Stacey Rosen. I am the vice-president of women’s health at North Shore LIJ’s Katz Institute for Women’s Health. I know I am in a room that for me is a bit unusual. I am a practicing cardiologist and have been for over 25 years but have always been well aware of the fact that women’s health is unique and has been understudied, under diagnosed and under treated for decades.

 

In 1991 the late Dr. Bernadine Healy, the first female who oversaw the National Institutes of Health along with Dr. Susan Blumenthal, who was then a practicing psychiatrist, started the division of women’s health at the NIH.

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.

    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.
