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…

I was told that the pain could be managed by taking the “pill”. I was told that the cysts on my ovaries were harmless. I was…

    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 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…

My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…
