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. This is a disease that affects a lot of women.


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…

    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,…

    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.

    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…

  • Kristin Sands

    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…
