Launch of Centre for Endometriosis Care by #Fortis Hospitals in #Bengaluru

Fortis Hospitals today launched a comprehensive Centre of Excellence for Endometriosis Care.
Endometriosis is a painful gynaecological disorder that occurs in women mostly in their prime. In this condition, the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus, the endometrium, grows outside the uterus on the surfaces of organs in the pelvic and abdominal areas.

Endometriosis does not have a cure but can be managed effectively with medications, surgery or hormone therapy,” said Dr Anu Sridhar, Consultant Gynaecologist at Fortis Hospitals.

Showing her support, renowned Kannada Actress Ragini Dwivedi said,"I am glad that Fortis Hospitals has taken up the initiative, which will not only motivate women to come out and speak about their pain but also help them fight the disease. It is my privilege to be associated with such a noble initiative.”

The event was followed by a concept-based fashion show choreographed by renowned designer Ramesh Dembla.
