Dr. Morris Wortman is a suma cum laude graduate of Brooklyn College (1972) and received his medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine (1976). He went on to complete his internship and residency training at Strong Memorial Hospital (1976-80) and was Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1982 and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. After serving as Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Genesee Valley Group Health Association he opened his private gynecology practice in 1986. In 1991 was named the Center for Menstrual Disorders and Reproductive Choice. Dr. Wortman has introduced many innovations in gynecology, particularly in the fields of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and office based surgery. In 1991 he and Amy Daggett invented the technique of endomyometrial resection (EMR) which is most successful of the so-called "endometrial ablation techniques" – methods that are designed to avoid hysterectomy in women with abnormal menstrual bleeding (these include NovaSure, ThermaChoice and Hydro-thermal ablation. Dr. Wortman and his assistant Amy Daggett have published dozens of articles during the past 24 years, in peer-review journals, that attest to the superior long-term success of his technique. Additionally, Dr. Wortman has also pioneered minimally invasive techniques for the removal of uterine fibroids that often play a role in menstrual disorders as well as infertility. As an editor for the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology Dr. Wortman contributes articles and is considered an important thought leader in both minimally invasive and office-based surgery. In addition to developing newer and less aggressive approaches to managing commonplace problems Dr. Wortman also consults with instrument manufactures to assist in the design of tomorrow's surgical innovations. Dr. Wortman is a member of the Accreditation Council on Gynecologic Endoscopy (ACGE)–the leading international accrediting organization for minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. He serves as Clinical Associate Professor of Gynecology at the University of Rochester School of Medicine. In addition to numerous articles on hysteroscopic surgery he has authored several textbook chapters on his techniques and lectured at many national and international meeting.
