When it comes to fibroids, hysterectomy should be the last and final option and should be the patient's choice first. At Seckin Endometriosis Center, our surgeon Dr. Tamer Seckin employs a number of masterful techniques to safely remove fibroids and restore a woman's reproductive health and livelihood.
There are five different kinds of surgical treatments for fibroids. They are:
Dr. Seckin is highly skilled in treating most cases of fibroids via laparoscopic myomectomy and uterine repair. His preferred method of fibroid removal is via laparoscopic surgery, which can remove the fibroid at its root with less downtime than an invasive surgery. Very, very rarely do we see the need for an open, invasive myomectomy, which requires a longer time to heal and a much larger incision or a hysterectomy.
"I discovered Dr. Seckin online when I was doing some research on laparoscopic fibroid removal. I had a very large uterine fibroid that caused me constant discomfort, and I desperately wanted it removed. Previous doctors I had seen were either dismissive about my fibroid or just wanted to give me a hysterectomy, as it would be “easiest." Then there were the doctors who would be willing to remove my fibroid less invasively but whose costs were so high that I could never afford them despite having good health insurance. I was beginning to feel disheartened and discouraged that I would ever find a solution.
I called Dr. Seckin’s office hoping that this might be my answer and after talking with Kim, who was so very kind and helpful, I made an appointment. Both Kim and Lucy were so warm and welcoming and patient in answering every question I had. Once I met Dr. Seckin I knew right away that I was in good hands. He reassured me that he could take care of my fibroid by removing it laparoscopically, in the least invasive way possible. He also assured me that regardless of my insurance issues and finances, he would take care of me and not to worry. I knew that he genuinely cared and I felt relieved and confident that I was under the right care.
It has since been a couple of months since my surgery, and I couldn’t be happier. I no longer have the discomfort and pressure that I was used to having daily. I cannot thank Dr. Seckin and his staff enough for helping me through this situation and for taking such great care of me. Dr. Seckin is by far one of the most compassionate and caring doctors I have ever met. I am so grateful for having found him, and I am forever grateful to for all his care and kindness."
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, I was experiencing almost daily terrible pain to the point where I had difficulty walking, inability to eat, inexplicable weight…
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. They were all caring, kind, patient, and took the time to listen to me and explain anything I needed to…
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 traveled over 5 hours each way to see him, but it was definitely worth it. He removed disease from several…
Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!
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 on my left ovary, for the second time in my life. This is when I finally found Dr. Seckin and…
