What Makes Us Different? 

There are several standards of care we uphold in all of our endometriosis surgeries in order to provide patients with the best quality treatment. 

1. We operate exclusively out of Lenox Hill Hospital where we have a long-established relationship with a team of dedicated personnel. 

2. We are known for our expertise in complex cases of endometriosis, particularly deep infiltrating endometriosis of the pelvis which is known to cause rectal disease, sciatic and pudendal neuropathy, and sigmoid, ureter, and bowel obstruction. 

3. We utilize a sophisticated technique based on precision and micro-surgery which allows for organ preservation as well as pain and adhesion prevention. 

4. We are committed exclusively to the deep excision of endometriosis using advanced laparoscopic techniques. We have serious reservations concerning robotic surgery, particularly for cases of endometriosis, due to its present lack of haptic feedback and proprioception, and its limited capability in handling advanced cases involving the retroperitoneum.   

5. We use our unique patented Aqua Blue Excision technique (ABC), which allows for the increased visualization of lesions, resulting in better identification and excision of endometriosis. 

6. Dr. Seckin is a world-renowned excision surgeon with over 35 years of experience in the field and over thirty years of exclusive experience in laparoscopy. Dr. Seckin’s immediate surgical team includes Dr. Karli Goldstein, who trained extensively in endometriosis surgery with Dr. Seckin.

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis.

    After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!
