Catholic Health to present program on minimally invasive surgical treatments for infertility

BUFFALO – More than six million women in the United States have endometriosis. Not only can the condition be extremely painful, but it can also make it difficult to become pregnant.

Additionally, studies show 20-40% of women who have had a tubal ligation to avoid pregnancy seek a reversal procedure in the future. Today, minimally invasive surgical procedures are available to help in both of these situations.

Catholic Health is sponsoring an information program entitled, “Minimally Invasive Surgical Options to Improve or Restore Fertility” on Thursday, April 4, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Millennium Hotel, 2040 Walden Avenue, Buffalo.

Join nationally-recognized women’s health expert, Ali Ghomi, MD, for dinner and a discussion on how minimally invasive gynecologic surgery can help improve fertility. He’ll discuss how robotic surgery can be used to treat advanced endometriosis or reverse a tubal ligation, increasing a woman’s potential to become pregnant.

“Minimally Invasive Surgical Options to Improve or Restore Fertility” is open to the public. Guests are invited to attend one free community program per the calendar year. After that, the cost is $20 and includes a meal.

Space is limited and reservations are required. For more information, call 716-447-6205 or visit chsbuffalo.org/events.
