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

Past, present, and future of robotic surgery for endometriosis and hysterectomy
Vladimir Nikifarouk, MD

 

Hi, I know it is already 3:00 and everybody wants to go home but I was doing one presentation and my little one, an 11 year old, wanted to be involved in that. So I had to rethink how would I talk so that an 11 year old would understand? The point of this conference is patient education, doctor education and I wanted to combine and sort of resolve a little controversy about the robot. You guys just started exactly what I was planning to talk about and you are almost finished.

 

My daughter put this slide in. It says “who needs surgery in space”? For people who do not know this robotic technology was developed or idea of robotic surgery was developed by NASA trying to invent something that in case an astronaut would need to have surgery, he or she will safely be brought to space. So it sounds great, yes? But apparently someone else has to put the probes in space so it does not work.

    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…

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