ROMAN Horace

  • Professor, Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, Rouen University Hospital, France.

Professor Roman focuses on minimally invasive gynaecologic surgery, and particularly on the surgical management of the endometriosis.

He received his PhD in epidemiology from Pierre and Marie Curie University of Paris, and he accomplished a fellowship in the Department of Pediatric Epidemiology of Charleston, SC, USA.

Horace Roman is affiliated with several professional organisations including the American Association of Gynecological Laparoscopy, the European Society of Gynaecologic Endoscopy, and the World Endometriosis Society.

Horace Roman has authored more than 200 scientific abstracts and original articles in peer-reviewed journals such as Fertil Steril, Am J Obstet Gynecol, Hum Reprod and Obstet Gynecol, and presented at national and international conferences.

Endometriosis represents more than 80% of his daily practice, and the main topic of his epidemiological research. Horace Roman manages more than 50 women presenting with colorectal endometriosis each year, and proposes the conservation of the rectum in 80% of cases on average. His approach to ovarian endometriomas in women wishing to conceive is based on the ablation of the inner surface of the cyst using the plasma energy, in order to avoid the loss of underlying ovarian parenchyma due to the cystectomy.
