Should endometriosis surgery have its own credentialing?

Harry Reich, MD

 

I am very happy to see so many people still here. It is a beautiful day out I heard. But at least it is warmer here. It was pretty cold this morning. I was going to talk about credentialing but then I realized what it would do if I had to abide by credentialing all my life. I certainly would not be here.

 

Honestly, the AAGL has asked me to try to figure out a way to credential endometriosis surgeons. I feel the simplest way to do it would be to review videos of how surgeons take apart the rectovaginal septum when the rectum is stuck to the vagina. A simple technique no matter what the modality you use, whether it is sharp scissors, laser or robotic surgery. I think our women out there our patients deserve to know that there are doctors who do this work instead of doctors who just look in and zap a couple of little areas and say that they treated the patient.

    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…
