Blossom Ball 2010 - Dr.Seckin

Endometriosis Foundation of America: - Blossom Ball 2010
Tamer Seckin
Thank you, thank you, and thank you.
There are almost 38 tables here. You all came for a cause, and it is a grand cause for us, for many women, for many men, many husbands, boyfriends, families; America’s backbone, that is endometriosis. We believe that. It is like an underlying cause of many things, one of the most misdiagnosed, mistreated, and mismanaged, and it affects everyone, every corner of society, and is a multi-dimensional disease.
We had a great conference at the New York Academy of Sciences today. Believe it or not, believe it not, people came from Brazil, from London, from Stanford, from Yale, from MIT; they are all here at these tables. They have been part of our force.
I really owe so much to them, and most of all, obviously, our face of endometriosis, Padma. We owe her so much. She gave such a touching talk today and then you realize some people have gift that they can speak from their heart. They can speak their feelings, what they have been through and, you know what, people identify with that. We doctors only treat individuals. They kind of treat masses, people find a cause through them, and they really look forward, the way they speak. Padma was gorgeous today, the way she spoke, she can really express it. I have not seen anybody who can express their feelings as well as she does and I would like to give applause to Padma. You know I do not have a prepared speech or anything like that, so basically I really appreciate it.
We are a new foundation and I think we are in the right cause. There are people here from my hospital, the administration is here, and they have been very supportive in what we do. There are many doctors here from Mount Sinai and from other places. Thank you for coming, thank you for coming!
This is a great cause and you will see this cause growing and growing. We will be one. We are like one river, we will be the big sea, and we will be big waves. We are going to make sounds and everybody will hear us. The bottom line is no woman should suffer unnecessarily due to mis-information, mis-management, and mis-treatment. We are here to help. We will do everything to change that.
Thank you very much. I would like to invite someone who is very special, he comes from Stanford. He is a man who sacrificed himself for this cause. Last year we honored someone like him, which was Harry Reich. He is here tonight. However, this man also, single-handedly, made a revolution in surgery; he brought the video camera into surgery in the late 80s. Nobody used video camera in surgery until Camran Nezhat. I would like to honor him tonight and ask him to join me at the podium.

    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'll never stop praising Dr. Seckin and his team. He literally gave me back my life.

  • Erin Brehm

    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…

  • Anita Schillhorn

    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…

  • Nicholette Sadé

    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! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

    My wife had her laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis with Dr. Seckin on Jan 30, 2014. She doesn't write online reviews so I'm writing this on her behalf. I accompanied her with each office visit she had. The staff--Lucy and Kim, are very friendly, warm and professional. Dr. Seckin was excellent in every capacity. He spent a lot of…

  • 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,…

  • Lauren Rodriguez

    I researched and found Dr. Seckin after dealing with years of doctors who couldn't help me or refused to go the extra mile for their patients. I have to say I am truly blessed to have found such a compassionate and talented doctor. He is exquisite with everything he does, and both his team at the office and surgical team…

  • Kellya Vespa

    Dr. Seckin is a very skilled surgeon. There are not many doctors like him that truly understand the effects of endometriosis. I am lucky to have found him. The staff is wonderful too.

  • Meg Connolly

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful. Should I ever need another operation for endometriosis, Dr. Seckin will be the one to do it. I recommend him to anyone I come across with similar problems…
