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.

    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…

  • 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…

    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 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,…

  • 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…

  • 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…

    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…
