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…

    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…

    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…
