Our Research:

In collaboration with the Division of Gynecologic Oncology Research and the UHN Bariatric Clinic, our team has designed a new clinical trial evaluating elevated body mass index (BMI) as a risk-factor, titled Bariatric Surgery for Fertility-Sparing Treatment of Atypical Hyperplasia and Grade 1 Cancer Endometrium (“B-FiERCE”). This trial invites eligible patients to randomize to either receiving bariatric surgery with standard therapy or standard therapy alone. Eligible patients must have a BMI of ≥35 and remain untreated until assessed by our clinic.
