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"

  • 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.

  • Angela Aro

    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…

  • Emi O

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • Kristin Sands

    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…

  • Wilfredo Reyes

    Dr. Seckin literally gave my wife her life back. I am eternally grateful to him for his generous, determined spirit to see that Melanie finally live free from the prison bonds of Endometriosis.

  • Carla

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin was the one who accurately diagnosed me. Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein really care about their patients and it shows. They listened to my concerns,…

  • Melissa Boudreau

    When I think of Dr. Seckin these are the words that come to mind. Gratitude, grateful, life-changing, a heart of gold. I feel compelled to give you a bit of background so you can understand the significance of this surgery for me. I am passionate about Endometriosis because it has affected me most of my life and I have a…

  • Jaclyn Harte

    Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein radically changed my quality of life. They treat their patients with dignity & respect that I've personally never seen in the literally 25+ doctors I've seen for endometriosis. This summer, I had a surgery with Dr. Seckin & Goldstein. It was my first with them, but my 5th endo surgery. I couldn't believe the difference,…

  • Megan Rafael Moreno

    I was in pain for 2 years. I was getting no answers, and because dr Goldstein and dr seckins were willing to see and treat me I'm finally feeling almost back to normal. They were very down to earth and helpful in my time of need. Dr Goldstein was easy to talk to and caring, she took care of me…

  • Nancy Costa

    Dr. Seckin is one of the best endometriosis surgeon. Every time I go to the office, he really listens to me and is always concerned about my issues. Dr Seckin's office staff are a delight and they always work with me. I feel I can leave everything to them and they will take care of it. Thank you to the…

  • Rebecca Black

    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…

  • Monique Roberts

    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…
