Endometriosis: A Brief History (with Dr Camran Nezhat)
190 million people in the world have endometriosis. So why do we know so little about it?
In this endometriosis mini-series, we’ll explore the condition—from ancient treatments to cutting-edge research. In this episode, we look at 2,000 years of history to explore how people with endometriosis symptoms were treated (and often dismissed). Then we talk to Dr. Camran Nezhat, a pioneer and leading practitioner in the field of minimally invasive surgery, who shares his 40-year journey advocating for endometriosis patients and advancing endometriosis research and awareness. This series is funded by the Wellcome Center for Human Genetics.
