Endometriosis – A Concise Practical Guide to Current Diagnosis and Treatment

Recently, our founder Dr. Seckin, along with a number of well-established physicians, contributed to a new medical textbook focusing on endometriosis. “ENDOMETRIOSIS A Concise Practical Guide to Current Diagnosis and Treatment” looks to help students, doctors, scientists, physicians, healthcare workers, and patients, to deepen and broaden their knowledge and foster a precise, individualized approach to the treatment of endometriosis patients. As stated in the preface, “With up to 20 % of women suffering from endometriosis, the diagnosis and state-of-the-art treatment of this disease have enormous relevance for women's health. The mainstay for the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis is laparoscopy surgery. As surgical techniques have been refined over the years and considering that new resection techniques and principles have enabled the gynecologic laparoscopic surgeon to remove previously inoperable deep infiltrating endometriosis, the time has come to publish an up-to-date guide to diagnosis and treatment that is written by experts in the field.”

The text is now available at no charge, simply by clicking the following link. We hope the following text can provide both a thorough and insightful resource for both patients, future physicians and current providers alike, as we work to further our knowledge on a complex and devastating disorder that continues to affect millions of women worldwide.

Preface

With up to 20% of women suffering from endometriosis, the diagnosis and state-of-the-art treatment of this disease have enormous relevance for women's health. The mainstay for the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis is laparoscopy surgery. As surgical techniques have been refined over the years and considering that new resection techniques and principles have enabled the gynecologic laparoscopic surgeon to remove previously inoperable deep infiltrating endometriosis, the time has come to publish an up-to-date guide to diagnosis and treatment that is written by experts in the field.

Dealing chiefly with the surgical treatment of endometriosis, this authoritative reference work has been published by an Austrian-German group of scholars, friends, and mentors at the 45-yearold Kiel School of Gynecological Endoscopy. This school is an active part of the Schleswig-Holstein University Medical Center in Kiel, Germany, which is one of the founding faculties of the 350-year-old Christian Albrechts University.

The first clinical description of endometriosis may date back to the German physician Daniel von Schroen of Jena (1661–1734) in 1690 and to the Austrian professor Carl Freiherr von Rokitansky (1804–1878), who was the first to describe the pathohistology of this condition in Vienna in 1860.

Several of our mentors and masters in Kiel laid the foundations for our work and have also influenced recent developments in endometriosis research and treatment. Ernst Philipp (Head of Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics from 1937 to 1961) and Herbert Huber (Head of Department from 1961 to 1970) devoted a large part of their scientific research to endometriosis. In 1939, Huber implanted endometriotic tissue into his upper arm as an experiment for his postdoctoral thesis and hoped to observe endometriosis growth. The 'father of laparoscopy,' Kurt Semm (Head of Department from 1970 to 1995), founded the German medical journal 'Endometriosis', which was published in six editions annually over a period of 20 years. He established the German and European Endometriosis Societies and is also the founding father of our Kiel School of Gynecological Endoscopy. Thoralf Schollmeyer (Director of the Kiel School, 2006–2014) was senior editor of the Practical Manual for Laparoscopic and Hysteroscopic Gynecological Surgery, which was published in 2013 and included chapters dealing specifically with endometriosis.

This book was created with the generous and steadfast support of Dr. h. c. mult. Sybill Storz, our living mentor and esteemed partner in the industrial sector. We are grateful to publish our book through of Tuttlingen, Germany. In addition to continuous, intensive studies and ongoing research into this still enigmatic disease, which requires treatment for life, doctors and patients rely upon high-quality imaging, instrumentation, and equipment to perform advanced endoscopic surgery of endometriosis.

The editors thank all of our authors, who are friends of the Kiel School, for their contributions and diligent work on this book. We express special thanks to our many patients, whose feedback on their sufferings and symptoms helped us to understand key details in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease. We thank Friedrich Gagstatter, Nicole Guckelsberger and Dawn Rüther for their tireless cooperation and secretarial support, and we gratefully acknowledge the work of our illustrator, Holger Vanselow. It is our dream that this book can help many of us – students, doctors, scientists, physicians, healthcare workers, and patients – to deepen and broaden our knowledge and foster a precise, individualized approach to the treatment of endometriosis patients.

    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, 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!

  • Sheena Wright

    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.

  • Angela Aro

    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…
