I had been going through IVF for a little bit over a year when I decided to switch doctors. Friends of mine had recommended a terrific doctor on the East Side in Midtown, and on my very first visit he was able to identify one of the issues why I was not getting pregnant. I had started to get fibroids a couple of years earlier but as far as I knew they were growing very slowly and my last fertility doctor didn’t think they were an issue. My new doctor did. He detected that one of them was large enough and it was literally in the center of my uterus. He reffered me to Dr. Seckin. He mentioned his wife had had a very successful laparoscopic hysterectomy with Dr. Seckin and he was recommending that I consider removing my fibroids laparoscopically before moving forward with IVF treatments

My very first visit with Dr. Seckin was very eye opening. He took time to sit with me and discuss the different types of fibroids and how he was able to go in laparoscopically to remove them. I really appreciated the amount of time he took with me because I remembered coming out of the office and more than 45 minutes had passed, so right away I knew he was the right doctor.

The entire process up to and including surgery was the same way. Dr. Seckin patiently explained what the surgery entailed and even suggested some YouTube website so I could watch actual laparoscopic myomectomy being performed, which believe it or not was a big help.

The day of surgery I was extremely nervous waiting for my turn. Right before I was wheeled into surgery, Dr. Seckin assured me that everything would be fine, and it was. The surgery went very well. And what was even more amazing was that my incisions healed extremely well. I couldn’t believe it. The very next day after surgery I was in some pain of course, but I was up and walking around and within a couple of weeks my incisions were pretty much healed. One of the incisions was through my belly button and I was nervous about Dr. Seckin having to reconstruct it but it looks the same as it did before.

I’m still going through IVF treatments. It turns out I have other issues besides my fibroids but at least my fibroids are one less thing for me to worry about, thanks to Dr. Seckin.

    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…

    Seckin and Dr. Goldstein changed my life!

  • 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…

  • Carla

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin was the one who accurately diagnosed me. Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein really care about their patients and it shows. They listened to my concerns,…

    Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein radically changed my quality of life. They treat their patients with dignity & respect that I've personally never seen in the literally 25+ doctors I've seen for endometriosis. This summer, I had a surgery with Dr. Seckin & Goldstein. It was my first with them, but my 5th endo surgery. I couldn't believe the difference,…

    I was in pain for 2 years. I was getting no answers, and because dr Goldstein and dr seckins were willing to see and treat me I'm finally feeling almost back to normal.

  • Rebecca Black

    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.

  • Erin Brehm

    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…

  • Anita Schillhorn

    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…

  • Nicholette Sadé

    Dr. Seckin brought me back to life! I am now 3 weeks into my recovery after my laparoscopy surgery, and I feel like a new and improved woman! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…
