Medical Conference 2010 - Tamer Seckin Presentation

Tamer Seckin

Welcome to New York. My name is Tamer Seckin, and on behalf of the Endometriosis Foundation of America I welcome you to our first EFA Medical Conference: Advancing the Art and Science of Endometriosis from Stem Cells to Radical Excision Surgery.

I’m so happy that I see familiar faces here. You all came from very, very far away. I know people who came from Brazil, from Puerto Rico, from Stanford and London, and since I am from Brooklyn, from the outer boroughs of Brooklyn people came here, too. There are many doctors, many patients, and this shows how much you care. I congratulate you and I’m very, very happy to be here with you.

Today we are all one here, for one reason, and that is for endometriosis.

According to the latest numbers, close to 170 to 180 million people in the world, and in America alone anywhere between eight to ten million, suffer from this disease. It is the number one cause for infertility, the number one cause for pain, a major cause for hysterectomy, and a major cause for women being misdiagnosed, mistreated, and ten years of suffering and agony with late diagnosis.

We name today's session Stem Cells without discrediting the old theories. Stem cell science brings a deeper explanation and understanding to this disease. We included wide radical excision because good quality surgery happens to be the treatment that works best for these patients.

We are honored to have all of you here again for the purpose to advance the dialogue in discovery, care and treatment of women with endometriosis. I think we cannot do it alone. We need physicians, scientists, academia and advocates like you to continue to work together. With further education and awareness we can give care, relief and hope to so many millions of women in need.

    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!

    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.
