Dr. Seckin performed my supracervical hysterectomy

I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have found Dr. Seckin, who I initially went to see as a third opinion after having been misdiagnosed by my first doctor and after the second doctor recommended surgery.

As a bit of background, I am in my early 40s, work in finance for a large bank and quietly struggled with terrible side effects of adenomyosis (not easy to talk about openly in a male dominated organization) for two years before seeing Dr. Seckin.  And as I am writing this recommendation, it has been roughly 2 months since Dr. Seckin performed my supracervical hysterectomy.

I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to have found Dr. Seckin, who I initially went to see as a third opinion after having been misdiagnosed by my first doctor and after the second doctor recommended surgery.  Prior the meeting Dr. Seckin, I viewed my visit to him for a second opinion as a formality and had fully intended to move forward with the ‘second’ doctor, who is considered to be one of the leading gynecologic surgeons in the city.  But after meeting Dr. Seckin, I knew immediately that he was the doctor that I wanted to perform the surgery.  

In my case, he spent a great deal of time and energy explaining to me exactly what the various options were for me, rather than a brusque ‘I am an expert surgeon and I know what to do’ attitude.  It was quickly evident that not only is he an expert surgeon and authority, but also a warm and sympathetic ‘caregiver’ in the true sense of the word.  Equally important to me, I came away from the first meeting knowing in my heart that he was not only a surgeon but also a perfectionist and aesthete and that I could trust him to operate on me with the best possible outcome, both internally and externally.  And that is exactly what he did.  I was able to return home the day of my surgery, returned to work the following week and was back exercising (I’m a SoulCycle fanatic!) two weeks to the day after surgery. And two months post-surgery, you can barely see the incisions. For all these reasons, I cannot recommend him more highly. 

And on a final note, it is worth mentioning that team around him – doctor, nurses, and anesthesiologist – who helped Dr. Seckin perform my surgery at Lenox Hill were equally confidence inspiring and further evidence that I was in good hands with Dr. Seckin.  Not only is he the best, he surrounds himself with the best as well!

    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…

    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…

    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…

    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,…

    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…
