EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

Ureter

CY Liu, MD, FACOG

 

Thank you EFA for putting on this superb endometriosis meeting and thank you for the invitation. My topic this afternoon is Laparoscopic Treatment for Ureteral Endometriosis. But first, since this morning after Dr. Ron Batt talked I told him we should pay tribute to two pioneers in endometriosis research back in the 1920s. The first one of course is John Sampson. I just happened to have pictures in my computer, they comes in handy. This is his original paper back in I believe 1923/24 talking about peritoneal endometriosis due to the menstrual dissemination of endometrial tissue, he did not say endometrial blood, into the peritoneal cavity. This is his original drawing on the paper. Talking about endometrial tissue and I have done probably 1000 laparoscopic surgeries and I was intentionally looking for… endometrial tissue coming up from the tube but I have never seen any. I see a lot of menstrual blood but not…endometrial tissue.

 

A friend of mine, Ray Gary, in England, he sent me this slide. Do you see here, I have never seen something like this…several thousand patients. He…

    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…

    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…
