Have robotics replaced traditional laparoscopy in the surgical treatment of endometriosis?

Michael Nimaroff, MD


Thank you very much and thanks to the EFA, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Reich, Dr. Liu for inviting me to participate. I only have one disclosure; I am fully employed by North Shore-LIJ Health System. That is my disclosure. I hope you have rested up. I know I have after hearing the last session because am going to try to tie it all and bring it all together. It is interesting. Without having seen my lecture how my talk will hopefully give you an answer and we are going to skip over a lot of this to save time because I am sure you have heard all this about obviously the nature of endometriosis. What I am going to concentrate on today is really more with robotics is not on the early stage disease and diagnostic endometriosis surgery that we have heard earlier but really more on advanced stage endometriosis.


Surgical excision for advanced endometriosis requires obviously proper pre-op evaluation, detailed consultation and obviously planning about the surgery as well as clearly fertility…

    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.

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…
