About Dr. Ted Lee

Dr. Ted Lee’s clinical expertise focuses on laparoscopic surgery, an alternative to open surgery, for the comprehensive management of endometriosis, including more-severe cases involving the bowel, bladder, ureter, and extrapelvic sites. He also specializes in minimally invasive surgery and treatment of ovarian remnant syndrome, uterine fibroids, abnormal uterine bleeding, cervical incompetence, and other complex gynecologic conditions.
He is a former president of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL), the largest gynecologic surgical society in the world, and is the organization’s only six-time Golden Laparoscope Award winner for best surgical video. A sought-after lecturer and surgeon, Dr. Lee has taught and performed live surgeries around the world.
In collaboration with patient advocates and other endometriosis experts around the world, Dr. Lee leveraged his role as AAGL liaison to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in revising the endometriosis International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for the first time in 45 years. These new diagnosis codes, established in 2022, include important details such as laterality, location, depth of invasion, volume of disease, and the specific organ involved. The data collected from the revised ICD codes will help with disease tracking and resource allocation while also promoting future endometriosis research.
Dr. Lee earned his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. He went on to complete a fellowship in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery at the Center for Reproductive Surgery in Atlanta.
