For out-of-state and international patients seeking surgery at Seckin Endometriosis Center, we offer an expedited (but never rushed!) treatment plan to accommodate your situation. These patients must commit to a one-week stay in New York City. Please note, depending on the type of surgery performed, patients usually need one day to one-week of post-operative recovery time before they are ready to return home. This week-long visit will usually entail:
Initial consultation with Dr. Seckin
Second pre-operative appointment
