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!

    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…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • 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…

  • Carla

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin was the one who accurately diagnosed me. Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein really care about their patients and it shows. They listened to my concerns,…

    Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein radically changed my quality of life. They treat their patients with dignity & respect that I've personally never seen in the literally 25+ doctors I've seen for endometriosis. This summer, I had a surgery with Dr. Seckin & Goldstein. It was my first with them, but my 5th endo surgery. I couldn't believe the difference,…

    I was in pain for 2 years. I was getting no answers, and because dr Goldstein and dr seckins were willing to see and treat me I'm finally feeling almost back to normal. They were very down to earth and helpful in my time of need. Dr Goldstein was easy to talk to and caring, she took care of me…

    Dr. Seckin is one of the best endometriosis surgeon. Every time I go to the office, he really listens to me and is always concerned about my issues. Dr Seckin's office staff are a delight and they always work with me. I feel I can leave everything to them and they will take care of it. Thank you to the…

  • Rebecca Black

    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'll never stop praising Dr. Seckin and his team. He literally gave me back my life.

  • Erin Brehm

    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…

  • Anita Schillhorn

    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…
