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.

    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 team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    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!

  • Sheena Wright

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.

    I have struggled with endometriosis and adenomyosis since first starting my period at 13. I was diagnosed at 21 and what followed was a series of unsuccessful surgeries and treatments. My case was very aggressive and involved my urinary tract system and my intestines. After exhausting all of my local doctors I was lucky enough to find Dr. Seckin. We…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • Kristin Sands

    Like so many women who have tirelessly sought a correct diagnosis and proper, thorough medical treatment for endometriosis, I found myself 26 years into this unwanted journey without clear answers or help from four previous gynecological doctors and two emergency laparoscopic surgeries. I desperately wanted to avoid the ER again; a CT scan for appendicitis also revealed a likely endometrioma…
