Dr. Abrão has been Head of the Endometriosis Unit situated within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the Teaching Hospital of the University of São Paulo, Brazil, since completing his residency there in 1989.

Dr. Abrão is the author of over 150 papers. One of these papers (Endometriosis lesions that compromise the rectum deeper than the inner muscularis layer have more than 40% of the circumference of the rectum affected by the disease), presented at the meeting of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) in Washington DC in November 2007, received the Carlo Romani Award for the best paper on endometriosis.
