Our Practice

Who are we?

Endometriosis, SECThe Seckin Endometriosis Center (SEC) is a tertiary referral center dedicated to providing patients with life-altering minimally invasive surgery for all of their endometriosis needs. Patients travel from all around the globe to receive our world renowned laparoscopic deep-excision surgery.

With over three decades of experience in the field of GYN surgery, including training in both laparoscopic and robotic surgery, we have worked tirelessly to master our technique to ensure each patient receives the treatment that fits their particular, unique case. We have created, developed and patented several revolutionary techniques that allow us to identify and easily remove all believed endometriosis lesions, which otherwise would be invisible to the naked eye when using just standard surgical methods. We work with each patient on a case by case basis, so that we can provide the personalize care and treatment that every woman suffering through the battle of endometriosis deserves and needs.

Meet Dr.Seckin

drseckin lecturerDr. Seckin is a board certified gynecologist with three decades of experience in laparoscopic surgery. After seeing how many women were affected by the tormenting disease that is endometriosis, Dr. Seckin decided to direct his focus on finding the best way he could help and developed a private practice, with affiliation to Lenox Hill Hospital, dedicated to diagnosing and treating women with endometriosis. Now a world-renowned expert in the field, Dr. Seckin is a part of a very limited number of surgeons in the United States who is exclusively committed to the use of Laparoscopic Deep-Excision of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin has also directed his attention to establishing more philanthropic events and continued education, lecturing and research in the field of endometriosis. To do this, Dr. Seckin founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America in 2009, whose efforts are made in order to keep promoting endometriosis awareness, improve the training of future physicians and most of all provide hope to the millions of women who suffer from this disease day to day worldwide.

ABC Technique

  • Our Aqua Blue Contrast (ABC) technique is a highly unique component to our endometriosis surgeries that allows us to identify lesions that would otherwise go undetected in normal laparoscopic surgery. Because of its high use and effectiveness in laparoscopic excision of endometriosis, we have patented this technique with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Specialization in endometriosis

  • While many patients go to a general OB/GYN for their endometriosis needs, it must be understood that these doctors are considered generalists, not specialists, when it comes to such fields as surgically treating endometriosis. Please understand, this is not a matter of a good versus bad doctor, but rather having the training and practice is a specific area of study. At the Seckin Endometriosis Center, we have trained many years to become a board certified, fellowship trained minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery practice, which is your best option when it comes to endometriosis treatment. But on top of this, we have spent additional years specializing our surgery practice strictly for endometriosis cases.

Multiple organ involvement

  • Whenever we perform excision surgery of endometriosis, we inspect all organs that are susceptible to endometriosis, including those that are not a part of the reproductive system. This is a highly crucial skill for your surgeon to have as oftentimes lesions can manifest on the bladder, ureter, intestine, etc, and without the expertise to remove said endometriosis, there is a great chance of symptoms persisting and the disease spreading.

    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!

Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

  • 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,…
