As a board certified gynecologist with twenty nine years of clinical and research experience, Dr. Bruce Lee is credited for pioneering radiofrequency ablation of fibroids in women. In 2005, he cofounded Halt Medical, Inc. to design, manufacture, and commercialize 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, helped design the Acessa teaching methodology and authored multiple peer review articles. Since 2008, he has instructed new physicians on how to perform the procedure in Canada, Germany, Mexico, Guatemala and in hospitals and universities in 13 U.S. states. Dr. Lee has since treated four thousand fibroid tumors in over 500 patients. This work 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, where he currently practices.
