Thoughts on Mother's Day

Thoughts on Mother's Day

As a surgeon who specializes in treating endometriosis, Mother’s Day is bittersweet for me, and it is a day that is emotionally charged for the 1 in 10 women affected by this disease.

Like so many things in life, the ability to have a child is often taken for granted. Unfortunately and much too often, endometriosis makes women incapable of bearing children.

To those women who were unable to conceive because their diagnosis was missed until too late, my heart goes out to you.

To those of you who are still struggling with the issue of infertility, my thoughts are with you.

Congratulations to those of you who are mothers because you have been spared this disease or who have been diagnosed in time and successfully treated.

Motherhood should be a choice for every woman. Endometriosis robs women of that choice. 

Help me to make a difference. Talk about this disease. Tell everyone you know about the signs and symptoms. The earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the better the outcome.

    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.

    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…

  • 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…
