The Endometriosis Summit, a patient and practitioner town hall meeting, will be held March 3, 2019, in Hoboken, New Jersey. The reportedly first-ever event will also be live streamed on Facebook.

Sponsored by Lumenis Ltd, a provider of energy-based medical devices for surgical, aesthetic and ophthalmic applications, the event will unite patients and practitioners for a day of education and discussion, featuring a collaborative platform of voices of the endometriosis community.

Excision specialists, endometriosis advocates, physical therapists, and patients will discuss state-of-the-art therapies and future directions in endometriosis care, according to a media release from Lumenis.

“We’re thrilled to introduce the Endometriosis Summit to bring patients and physicians together to discuss the future of endometriosis diagnosis and therapy, and we feel very encouraged by companies like Lumenis that are supporting awareness and the endometriosis care journey,” says event co-chair Sallie Sarrel, PT, ATC, DPT, in the release.

“This is a very exciting time for the endometriosis community, where awareness is surging alongside new laser excision technology that makes minimally invasive, complete endometriosis treatment possible. We’re looking forward to hearing a diversity of perspectives on this disease at the Endometriosis Summit.”

Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis, shares that, “Lumenis is honored to sponsor the Endometriosis Summit. We look forward to joining patients and physicians for this important day of education and discussion.”

“The summit’s ‘town hall’ approach is a perfect reflection of our company’s goals, which include both working with top physicians to develop CO2 laser excision and ablation approaches for endometriosis, as well as partnering with endometriosis patients and helping them talk to their doctors and learn more about the disease.”
