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.

    I’ve seen many obgyns over the years explaining my monthly symptoms during my period...but eventually it became a daily struggle with these pain. It feels like a poke here and there near my right pelvic region. I was given birth control pills for the past ten years but honestly, it didn’t help at all. I was in bed whenever I…

    Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable. I remember when my gynecologist first told me I needed a laparoscopy. Her exact words were "I can do the surgery, but if you were MY daughter- I'd send you to…

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    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!
