Endometriosis - The How & Why and Recent Advances in Treatment with Drs Camran & Azadeh Nezhat
Endometriosis is a disease where the cells of internal lining of the uterus (endometrium) starts to grow outside the uterus, mainly on organs in the pelvis, causing a maze of symptoms including not only pelvic pain, infertility, and severe menstrual cramps but many more. It affects more than 170 million women worldwide, and it affects every woman differently. Unfortunately, many women remain undiagnosed, or, are diagnosed late due to lack of understanding of the symptoms of the disease. Despite this, there is lack of research funding into the diagnosis, the cause, and effective treatments of Endometriosis, making women's options limited.
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month and the 5th Worldwide Endometriosis March will take place on 24th March 2018, in 60+ countries this year, to gain attention of health policy makers and congressional representatives. In honor, we are talking to eminent endometriosis specialists, and the founders of Worldwide Endometriosis March and Endometriosis Day, Dr. Camran Nezhat and Dr. Azadeh Nezhat, all about Endometriosis and the latest advances in its diagnosis, treatment and management.
