Diagnosis and treatment: surgery vs. no surgery?

Juan Salgado, MD


Thank you very much, good afternoon. Thank you to the…committee for their invitation and yes, I do look like Tamer Seckin. We do not know if we are brothers or not but we have one gene that is fight against endometriosis. We are together in that. We have to figure out who is the father.


I am going to talk today about endometriosis about surgery versus no surgery. This is my disclaimer.


First I want to start with a case that was presented by Dr. Maurice Chung the other day in Porto Rico. He was on vacation in Port Rico and I invited him to give a lecture to my residents. He started with this interesting case that really shocked me and made me more powerful to fight against unnecessary surgeries. This is a 29-year-old patient…with chronic pain pelvic pain after she had a trauma in her back. She started to seek a physician to treat her and finally she got this gynecological diagnostic laparoscopy which found that she had an endometrioma on her right ovary…

    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.…

    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.

    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…
