Out of State & International New Patient Instructions:

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. Ideally, our doctors will see you for an initial consultation in the office on a separate visit from your pre-op appointment. At the time of your scheduled surgery, out-of-state 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 5 days to 1 week of post-operative recovery time before they are ready to return home. This week-long visit will usually entail:

  1. Pre-operative appointment

  2. Additional team consultations and imaging tests, if necessary

  3. Surgery

  4. Post-operative appointment

    PLEASE NOTE: We can never guarantee a 1-week stay, in total. If your case is complex (e.g. multi-organ involvement), a longer recovery period in NYC is required.

    I’ve seen many obgyns over the years explaining my monthly symptoms during my period...but eventually it became a daily struggle with these pain. It feels like a poke here and there near my right pelvic region. I was given birth control pills for the past ten years but honestly, it didn’t help at all. I was in bed whenever I…

    Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable.

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis.

I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a…

    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.…

    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!
