EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

Adam Romoff

 

My name is Adam Romoff and I am a member of the department here. It is a privilege to introduce a member of the esteemed faculty of this extraordinary conference. It is also a particular privilege to be a colleague of Dr. Seckin. I am a huge fan of his. Not only his clinical and surgical brilliance but also his keen appreciation of the blend of basic science research, epidemiology, genetic research and how that kind of research and basic science underpinning can lead to the artful practice of medicine and moving the practice of medicine into the next century. I am a huge admirer of yours doctor.

 

As regards our esteemed faculty our keynote speaker today is Dr. Robert Taylor, who is vice chairman for research in the Department of OBGYN at Lake Forest. His early graduate work at Baylor involved the biology of estrogen. His post-doc work at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at UCSF involved the regulation of placental angiogenesis by growth factors and their receptors. Certainly a biology not too far removed from the pathophysiology of endometriosis.

    Prior to meeting Dr. Seckin and reading his book, “The Doctor Will See You Now”, I knew little to nothing about endometriosis. I was led to believe that endometriosis was not a serious condition. I was told that the pain could be managed by taking the “pill”. I was told that the cysts on my ovaries were harmless. I was…

    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 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…
