About Us

The Boston Center for Endometriosis brings together internationally recognized leaders in the field of endometriosis from renowned hospitals, including Boston Children’s Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The Center focuses on exceptional clinical care, research, and education.

The Center was created in 2012 by Dr. Marc Laufer, an acclaimed physician, surgeon, clinical researcher, author, and teacher to offer both young and adult women cutting edge treatment with the focus on short-term intervention and long-term management across their life span.

We have created a multidisciplinary team for endometriosis care. Our specialists have conducted clinical trials and research studies, published numerous papers in medical journals in fields such as gastroenterology, urology, and vascular biology, and will evaluate and treat patients who are referred for care.

In addition to diagnosing and managing teen and adult women’s endometriosis, the Center is a hub for unprecedented research advancement, including a biorepository for both intervention and observational studies. Our research program has been made possible through major support from the J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation.

Our Mission:

The mission of the Boston Center for Endometriosis (BCE) is two-fold, addressing both the diagnosis and management of the disease and research.

The BCE is committed to:

  • Providing multidisciplinary approaches to the diagnosis, care, and treatment of teens and women diagnosed with endometriosis across their reproductive lifespan
  • Identifying a non-invasive diagnostic test and ultimately find a cure for endometriosis
