Day of Endometriosis Surgery

Surgery Day Information 

Below is a list of instructions to keep in mind the day of your surgery.

  • Do no eat or drink anything after midnight (12:00am) or your surgery will be forfeighted and postponed. 

  • Make sure your schedule is completely free the day of your surgery.

  • Wear comfortable clothing. You will also be provided with a hospital gown.

  • Avoid bringing any jewelry or valuables. Although we provide every patient secure storage space, it’s best to keep personal possessions to a minimum. 

  • Please arrive at the hospital 60-90 minutes prior to your scheduled surgery. You may go directly to the main entrance of the hospital and then make a right. The OR waiting room will be on your left. For assistance, front desk personnel can direct you to the appropriate area. 

  • All patients must be accompanied by a significant other, family member, or close friend to escort them home. We are not permitted to discharge a patient home unaccompanied--even by taxi--due to anesthesia. We also recommend that women bring their partners or loved ones for comfort and support. 

  • Surgery can take anywhere from 1 to 5+ hours depending on the severity of your case. 

  • Recovery rates vary, however, most of our patients are well enough to leave the day of surgery and return to the comfort of their own home.

    Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable.

    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.

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!
