Clinical diagnosis of endometriosis in adolescents using the robot

John Dulemba, MD


Thank you Dr. Seckin, EFA, Lone and Harry, thank you for the invitation. After all that we have seen so far this is probably going to be actually a pretty boring, not very glamorous discussion because when we talk about teens or adolescents with endometriosis the disease is not very apparent. One of the drawbacks of today is that we are only going to visualize my pictures and any videos that I have here in 2D. As I argued with Dr. Michel Canis he said it was HD that was important for this disease and I went “no it’s 3D”. We argued, he did studies with 3D and he now agrees with me.

To begin with you have heard lectures all day, you heard them yesterday, today, you are going to hear more. Pain is not normal. Does that mean we need to operate on every single patient? As a teen probably not but I think what we should do is to begin giving the…

    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.…

    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.
