Visual diagnosis of endometriosis using fluorescence imaging + ICG Dye (Firefly)

Aileen Caceres, MD

 

Welcome Dr. Caceres from the Florida Hospital Celebration Health.

 

Aileen Caceres, MD:  Thank you very much that was a great keynote. I wanted to start my discussion with an anecdote of why, now that I have a couple of minutes to spare, why I was aspired to actually proceed with considering the visual diagnosis of endometriosis with Firefly. That really came from patients that were referred to our practice who had had multiple laparoscopies and never really had a diagnosis. Here I was struggling with these patients and trying to help them understand their chronic pelvic pain without truly having had a diagnosis of endometriosis. This is how things got started on this.

 

With no further ado; no disclosures for myself.

 

As we know, endometriosis is a common condition that affects most reproductive age women and we know that it affects approximately one in 20. We see this in the center, especially where we have a large referral basis, especially from our reproductive endocrinologists and also from our primary care…

    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…
