Towards mechanism-based molecular classification of women with endometriosis

Linda Griffith, PhD

 

Thank you so much. As you can see from this slide I do not treat patients of any kind but I do see them. I teach physical chemistry at MIT and this is what Dr. As-Sanie would call a stressor. It is a mid-term exam, the most difficult one. They have to use the grand canonical partition function to solve multi equilibria binding problems and they are very stressed. And actually a non-trivial number of girls in my class, it is a very large class of sophomores, do come to me with problems that ultimately end up being diagnosed as endometriosis. They are typically around 18, 19 or 20 years old and have suffered in the environment of MIT and not been taken seriously, not been able to cope and some of them drop out of MIT and were even worried about coming in the first place. I am really, really glad to be at this meeting because it was really the Endometriosis Foundation that stimulated me to think in the context of MIT a school that…

I was told that the pain could be managed by taking the “pill”. I was told that the cysts on my ovaries were harmless. I was…

    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…

    I'll never stop praising Dr. Seckin and his team. He literally gave me back my life.

    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…
