Dr. Seckin offered his expertise as a world-renowned surgeon on endometriosis and will participate in the global meeting forum on the “WES 2011 Montpellier Consensus for the Management of Endometriosis."

    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…

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!
