They will also discuss the importance of timely surgical intervention for preserving the ovaries.

The afternoon session will include education and awareness on all aspects of endometriosis including discussion of symptoms that disrupt everyday life including pelvic pain, gastrointestinal discomfort, problems sleeping, painful sex and dietary issues. Additional topics will include; avoiding pain medication dependence, understanding the psychology of pain, the surgical options, natural remedies, hormone replacement and tips for seeking the best help.

Improving Your Endometriosis Surgery

Learn to Excise Peritoneum and Deep Nodules, Reconstruct and Repair Bowel, Ureter, and Bladder.

This is first ever meeting exclusively covering endometriosis excision surgery as a postgraduate course for improving skills. Endometriosis surgery in early stages of the disease can be as challenging as advanced stage surgeries because in the early stages there is often partial and improper treatment of the disease. This leads to a need for repeated interventions.

Endometriosis surgery is unlike any diagnostic infertility procedure or oncologic surgery. It requires meticulous surgical skills with experience to precisely remove all lesions, and it's generally a long surgery. Guided by microsurgical principles, delicate tissue is excised using scrupulous hemostatic techniques under magnification.

Improving Your Endometriosis SurgeryIn the afternoon there will be a hands-on suturing lab with didactics and practice with faculty.

Lunch will be served for participants.
Postgraduate course is open to physicians, surgeons, residents and fellows
$100 Pre-registration required.

American Perspective on Endometriosis 2013

The last three years the Endometriosis Foundation of America (EFA) has successfully addressed three major chapters in endometriosis care beginning with "Stem Cells to Excision Surgery" in 2010, "Sex and Endometriosis, Seriously" in 2011, and "Endometriosis, The Next Generation" in 2012. Now, we are prepared to open an honest dialogue on the "American Perspective" -- examining where the American healthcare system currently stands on treating women with endometriosis and looking at opportunities to make it better.

How can we implement curriculum changes from high school to medical school?
How can we prevent the delay of diagnosis? How can we offer the best treatment?
How do we get American's to recognize endometriosis as a disease rather than a condition? How can we prevent "miss & hit" surgeries?

World renowned experts and master surgeons, together with scientists, will discuss their thoughts on these and many more questions.

American Perspective on Endometriosis 2013Keynote Speakers:
Dan Martin, MD "Recognition of Endometriosis - Historical and Current Concepts."
Serdar Bulun, MD "Endometriosis Research: from Sampson to the 21st Century"

    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.…

  • Anna Lu

    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!
