ORIGINAL EVENT DESCRIPTION:
LEARN ABOUT ENDOMETRIOSIS FROM THE CIGC EXPERTS, PLUS PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
An estimated 6.5 million women in the U.S. suffer from endometriosis, a disease that on average takes 10 years to diagnose. In that time the disease can advance, causing damage to the delicate structures of reproductive organs, making it a leading cause of infertility–not to mention causing severe pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, and disruptions to everyday work and life. March is Endometriosis Awareness Month, and CIGC is doing its part to spread the word about this chronic disease that affects 1 in 10 women.
If you’ve been experiencing symptoms like pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding, or if you’ve been diagnosed with endometriosis, join CIGC for a FREE event on March 27. CIGC experts will discuss exactly what endometriosis is, the gold standard treatment (minimally invasive excision), and the latest research.
CIGC co-founders Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD, both board-certified gynecologists and fellowship-trained in minimally invasive surgical techniques, will be available to answer any questions you may have. Dr. Louise van der Does, Director of Research for CIGC, will be sharing the latest insights from endometriosis research studies. CIGC endometriosis patient Khadijia will speak about her journey struggling with endometriosis pain, and finding relief with laparoscopic excision.
This is a FREE event, however seating is limited so please SIGN-UP TODAY. We will serve light refreshments including wine and hors d’oeuvres.
