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 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…

    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…

    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…

  • Nicholette Sadé

    Dr. Seckin brought me back to life! I am now 3 weeks into my recovery after my laparoscopy surgery, and I feel like a new and improved woman! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

  • Jason Curry

    My wife had her laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis with Dr. Seckin on Jan 30, 2014. She doesn't write online reviews so I'm writing this on her behalf. I accompanied her with each office visit she had. The staff--Lucy and Kim, are very friendly, warm and professional. Dr. Seckin was excellent in every capacity. He spent a lot of…

  • Karen N

    I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 19. I saw several Endometriosis "Specialists" since then, had a few laproscopic surgeries to "remove" the endometriosis and continued to be in pain. I had a hysterectomy in 2012 and was told this would stop the pain once and for all. No such luck! Tired of spending days in bed with a heating pad,…

  • Lauren Rodriguez

    I researched and found Dr. Seckin after dealing with years of doctors who couldn't help me or refused to go the extra mile for their patients. I have to say I am truly blessed to have found such a compassionate and talented doctor. He is exquisite with everything he does, and both his team at the office and surgical team…

    Dr. Seckin is a very skilled surgeon. There are not many doctors like him that truly understand the effects of endometriosis. I am lucky to have found him. The staff is wonderful too.

  • Meg Connolly

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful. Should I ever need another operation for endometriosis, Dr. Seckin will be the one to do it. I recommend him to anyone I come across with similar problems…
