"Endometriosis currently affects 180 million women around the world ‒ over 7 million in Brazil alone.
Between 10% and 15% of women of reproductive age may suffer from endometriosis, the primary cause of pelvic pain and
infertility among women. Our studies have shown that it takes from 7 to 12 years for the disease to be diagnosed.
My focus is to identify and treat endometriosis as early as possible so
women can avoid problems such as chronic pain and infertility, so they can enjoy good health, free of pain.
I believe a global perspective is key to achieving this balance"
DR. MAURÍCIO ABRÃO
A national and international standard-setter in
endometriosis and women’s health, with an integrated view.
Dr. Mauricio Abrão’s life story carries advancements that have shifted the paradigms of what we know about women’s health, endometriosis, infertility and gynecologic endocrinology.
Coupled with that was his important role in raising awareness about
incorporating, into any treatment, strategies that promote health in a balanced and comprehensive manner across all stages of a woman’s life. This vision allowed new forms of clinical and surgical care to be developed. Furthermore, it allowed women to write new stories, without pain, and to become pregnant.
Today, the technology to diagnose, classify stages and treat endometriosis and infertility is undergoing amazing advances.
Dr. Mauricio Abrão is a pioneer in developing studies and techniques that have become the global standard in women’s health, such as eliminating invasive diagnosis techniques by creating markers to identify endometriosis; improving diagnostic accuracy by creating new methods for mapping endometriosis and adenomyosis through imaging;
He has been successfully treating cases using the continuous advances in minimally invasive surgery; enhancing the precision of treatment with a perspective that includes therapeutic algorithms; and creating an application to classify endometriosis stages.
An entire life devoted to leading the construction of evidence concerning women’s health.
The situation was different 30 years ago. The amount of attention devoted to women’s health, endometriosis and infertility was scant.
There was much to learn and much progress to be made. His career built together with an entire research team produced major advances and enabled dr. Mauricio abrão to transform the way society understands these topics.

Frequently Asked Questions:
WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS?
It’s a condition resulting from endometrium, the tissue lining the uterus cavity, growing outside the uterus.
WHAT ORGANS DOES ENDOMETRIOSIS AFFECT?
It can affect many different tissues and organs, such as ovaries, peritoneum, uterosacral ligaments (uterus and rectum), retrocervical region (behind the uterine colon), rectovaginal septum, rectum/sigmoid colon, small intestine (terminal ileum), appendix, bladder and ureters.
DOES ENDOMETRIOSIS AFFECT MANY WOMEN?
Endometriosis is a common gynecologic condition. It affect between 10% and 15% of women of reproductive age. The number of women suffering from this condition is estimated to be over 7 million in brazil and more than 180 million around the world. In developed countries, endometriosis is one of the main causes of hospitalization due to gynecologic conditions.
WHY IS ENDOMETRIOSIS HARD TO DIAGNOSE?
Women suffering from endometriosis at times take years to seek specialized help to start proper treatment. In addition, a definitive diagnosis requires excellent diagnostic imaging or surgical procedure (laparoscopy).
DO BIRTH CONTROL PILLS CAUSE ENDOMETRIOSIS?
No. Birth control pills can even be used to treat endometriosis-related pain, but do not cause it. However, they can delay diagnosis if a patient takes too long to seek medical care.
