BSGE President Andrew Kent has released a message on the sad death of Dr David Redwine:

‘It is with great sadness that I have to report that David Redwine, a previous Alec Turnbull Lecturer and Honorary Member of our Society, has died unexpectedly at home in Phoenix, Arizona. Certainly a giant in our field and a great friend to many. 

‘Our thoughts will be with Laurie and his family.

Dr David Redwine was a pioneer in endometriosis research and treatment making important contributions to the understanding of endometriosis and its surgical excision.

Before his retirement in 2012, Dr Redwine headed the world-renowned and award-winning Oregon Institute of Endometriosis at St. Charles Medical Center, Bend, Oregon. He operated on thousands of women with endometriosis from all across the USA, Canada and beyond. He will be greatly missed.

The Society will feature an obituary of David Redwine in the next issue of The Scope, which will be released in December.
