EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

Thank you Dr. Seckin. What a great morning this has been and it is such an honor to be here with Deborah Bush and Robert Taylor who have always pushed me to be my best self and always teach me something every time I am with them. Thank you.

 

Is anyone doing anything about endometriosis? And of course the answer is yes. One of the key questions that we have already addressed a little bit that we are thinking of scientifically is what even is endometriosis? You all have seen the pictures, you all know from your own experiences that it looks different in different women. It presents with different symptoms, it has different responses to treatment. It has different long term and short term consequences. We do not understand the root of any of these differences. But we know that they must be important, particularly for considering development of diagnostics and treatments. We know that the appearance of the disease that we focus on that is basis for the staging system entirely does not correlate with pelvic pain, which is the primary, by far the primary presenting…

    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.

    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.…

    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.

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…

    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…
