Dr. Lee is a board certified gynecologist with twenty nine years of clinical and research experience. He is the inventor and world’s leading practitioner of Acessa, the safe, effective, Federal Drug Administration-approved alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy. He has helped establish two new Los Angeles-area medical centers dedicated exclusively to the life-changing treatment – the Center for Uterine Fibroid Treatment at Southern California Hospital at Culver City and Roxbury Surgical Associates in Beverly Hills.
Known as the Acessa Procedure, Dr. Lee has since treated four thousand fibroid tumors in over 500 patients. In 2005, he cofounded Halt Medical, Inc which was created to design, develop, and manufacture new instrumentation specifically for the Acessa Procedure. While Chief Medical Officer, he worked with a dedicated team of engineers to design the Halt Fibroid Ablation System, oversaw phase 2 and phase 3 clinical trials, designed and produced the Acessa teaching methodology and instruction materials, and authored multiple peer review articles. Since 2008, he has instructed physicians in the performance of Acessa in Canada (Vancouver, Toronto, Regina), Germany (Tubingen), Mexico (Monterrey), Guatemala (Guatemala City) and in hospitals and universities in 13 U.S. states.
