Students Attend 6th Annual Medical Conference

To help fulfill our mission of educating the medical community, the EFA offered scholarships for medical students to attend this year’s sixth annual Medical Conference. Hailing from five different medical schools, these students represent the future of gynecological care. The EFA is proud to be a part of shaping their education, and look forward to hosting next year’s scholarship recipients!

Here’s what they had to say.

I had such a wonderful experience at the conference. It was intriguing to listen about lecture topics from experts in the field. There was a diverse group of physicians there with different practices and opinions which opened up a lot of room for discussion. I specifically enjoyed the portion of the conference about the most current initiatives to teach endometriosis in schools. Attending this conference makes me excited to eventually be a physician working to improve women's health.”

"The EFA conference provided a great opportunity to gain an interdisciplinary perspective of endometriosis. The clinicians and academic researchers engaged in discourse that ultimately focused on improving the quality of their patients’ lives."

“It was such an honor to attend the EFA annual conference! The intimate setting gave me the opportunity to not only hear talks from experts in the field but to interact with them personally, and empowered me to be a better patient advocate. I hope future students will have the opportunity to learn about an issue that is too-often forgotten in our curriculums, but so integral to women's health. Thank you EFA for the experience, and I hope to continue to attend as a resident and physician!”

“The Endometriosis Foundation of America's "Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning" Conference was an exciting new look at a pathology that is largely overlooked, and whose long- and short-term effects are grossly underestimated in the field of gynecology. The conference gave an in-depth review not only of the cutting edge research and technology that the field has to offer, but also addressed the issues concerning quality of life of sufferers of this disease.”

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%. During this time, I was preparing all my documents to send to Dr. Seckin to review. However, with this new information I put everything on hold and went to a urologist. After a few months, no one could figure…

    I'll never stop praising Dr. Seckin and his team. He literally gave me back my life.

  • Erin Brehm

    I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Seckin and his team before, during and after my surgery. I came to Dr. Seckin having already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis 5 years prior, with a different surgeon. My symptoms and pain had returned, making my life truly challenging and my menstrual cycle unbearable. Dr. Seckin was quick to validate my…

    I came to Dr. Seckin after years of dealing with endometriosis and doctors who didn't fully understand the disease. He quickly ascertained what needed to be done, laid out the options along with his recommendation and gave me the time to make the right decision for me. My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…

    Dr. Seckin brought me back to life! I am now 3 weeks into my recovery after my laparoscopy surgery, and I feel like a new and improved woman! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

    My wife had her laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis with Dr. Seckin on Jan 30, 2014. She doesn't write online reviews so I'm writing this on her behalf. I accompanied her with each office visit she had. The staff--Lucy and Kim, are very friendly, warm and professional. Dr. Seckin was excellent in every capacity. He spent a lot of…

  • Karen N

    I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 19. I saw several Endometriosis "Specialists" since then, had a few laproscopic surgeries to "remove" the endometriosis and continued to be in pain. I had a hysterectomy in 2012 and was told this would stop the pain once and for all. No such luck! Tired of spending days in bed with a heating pad,…

  • Lauren Rodriguez

    I researched and found Dr. Seckin after dealing with years of doctors who couldn't help me or refused to go the extra mile for their patients. I have to say I am truly blessed to have found such a compassionate and talented doctor. He is exquisite with everything he does, and both his team at the office and surgical team…

    Dr. Seckin is a very skilled surgeon. There are not many doctors like him that truly understand the effects of endometriosis. I am lucky to have found him. The staff is wonderful too.

  • Meg Connolly

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful. Should I ever need another operation for endometriosis, Dr. Seckin will be the one to do it. I recommend him to anyone I come across with similar problems…
