I had terrible cramps and back pain that kept me home from school

After asking around other women who also suffered from endometriosis, they said that they had laparoscopic surgery by their gynecologist but that it was a bad idea because their doctors didn’t do a great job and they had bad scarring. One friend I spoke to sent me to Dr. Seckin, and said that he has a great reputation and has…

As soon as I got my period in high school, I had terrible cramps and back pain that kept me home from school for at least a couple of days. I was never sure how to handle it; I tried every over the counter prescription but they would all eventually stop working for me. At 18, I went to the doctor and she gave light birth control pills to help ease the pain, but the pain didn’t go away. Not only that but my period was never on time, sometimes I would get it early, sometimes I would get it later than I was supposed to. By the time I reached my 20s skipping work and school was just not an option as much as before. I would go through prescription medication in a couple of months that should have lasted several months to a year.  It came to a point that I was afraid of getting my period due to the intensity of the pain. My doctor put me on a different birth control but that wasn’t working, so she told me to try different ones until I would find something that would work. That wasn’t something I was interested in doing. She didn’t give me an option to get to the source of the issue but just a way to cover up the pain.

After asking around other women who also suffered from endometriosis, they said that they had laparoscopic surgery by their gynecologist but that it was a bad idea because their doctors didn’t do a great job and they had bad scarring. One friend I spoke to sent me to Dr. Seckin, and said that he has a great reputation and has operated without causing any of the side effects that the other women told me about. So I scheduled an appointment. Dr. Seckin put me at ease and finally answered my questions with answers that finally made sense to me. I felt secure that I finally found the right solution to my pain after all these years.

Laparoscopic surgery for my ovarian cysts decreased my pain by at least 90%. I had no scarring and had an easy recovery. Dr. Seckin's team was professional and caring and made me feel at ease. The doctor was available before and after surgery to answer any of my questions. Overall, I felt comfortable and informed throughout the process.

Due to the surgery, I am now able to lead a normal life where I am not constantly worried about getting my period or how to handle it. I’m able to take care of the pain with aspirin and not worry about having to change my medication every month.

Thank you again for everything.

    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…

  • 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…

    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.

    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.
