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 completed 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. After serving as Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Genesee Valley Group Health Association he opened his private gynecology practice in 1986 which later became known as the Menstrual Disorders– the first medical practice in the United States devoted to menstrual disorders.
Dr. Wortman 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 obviate hysterectomy in women with abnormal menstrual bleeding.
Dr. Wortman and his assistant Amy Daggett have published textbook chapters and dozens of articles during the past 30 years, in peer-review journals. Dr. Wortman serves on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology and is an internationally respected authority on the subject of late-onset endometrial ablation failures, sonographically guided hysteroscopic surgery and office-based gynecologic surgery.
In addition to his accomplishments in gynecology Dr. Wortman is also a world-class aviator and presently holds 3 U. S. National and 3 World Aviation Speed Records recognized by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale.
