What are the primary objectives of the Endometriosis Foundation of America?
Over the years, among very many patients that I have treated, some have really volunteered to be a part of what I am doing but they were not physicians. However, their social stature was so effective and influential, they could probably I thought would make more of a messenger. Of what I am doing as a doctor for individual patients, they could be doing the same thing for the masses, the masses of women from 15 to 45 that cannot find a window of opportunity to express themselves or be understood. I said if I am doing 200 surgeries a year, at one point I am going to stop doing this, and I could only help so many. However, if I can do a charity, a foundation that is uniquely focusing on education and awareness, education not only patients but education of doctors for treating these women rightly with good techniques from the experienced people that I have learnt, then I am willing to teach others. This is why I have initiated endometriosis foundation and one of my good friends who I was involved also in treating, Padma Lakshmi, she has wonderfully extended her hand to this cause. I am grateful to her and she took along carrying the message to her friends obviously, and we are coming up with some awareness very soon in the later part of April in New York City. I would like all the women who are hearing this message focus and click on that. I am sure there will be more to come on this issue later.
