Revealed moderate endometriosis

Dr. Seckin promised to help us and scheduled the surgery quickly. Three hours later, Dr. Seckin emerged from the operating room to give me a full report. The endometriosis was quite extensive and even affected my wife's appendix. Dr. Seckin also had a colo-rectal surgeon present during the operation.

Words cannot describe our gratitude and respect for Dr. Seckin. My wife and I struggled with infertility for five years. After multiple rounds of failed IVF, we decided to switch fertility specialists. Our new reproductive physician had suspicions of endometriosis (even though my wife was asymptomatic) and referred us to an ob-gyn surgeon who performed the laparoscopy which revealed moderate endometriosis.

Another year passed and the frustration continued. During a routine sonogram, a suspicious cyst was noticed. The decision to delay another IVF cycle and perform another surgery was not an easy one. After thorough research and recommendations, we were lead to Dr. Tamer Seckin. Our first visit with Dr. Seckin was quite memorable. After a thorough history and physical examination, I handed him the operative report. A minute later, he took off his glasses, glanced up at us, and ripped up the paper. Dr. Seckin succinctly stated, "This report is rubbish. I do not burn, I cut." My wife was a bit surprised by his demeanor, however, I was not. Being a physician anesthesiologist myself, I interact with surgeons on a daily basis and I am used to their personalities. Dr. Seckin promised to help us and scheduled the surgery quickly. Three hours later, Dr. Seckin emerged from the operating room to give me a full report. The endometriosis was quite extensive and even affected my wife's appendix. Dr. Seckin also had a colo-rectal surgeon present during the operation. He gave us his cell phone number with specific postoperative instructions and to not hesitate to call with any questions.

One year later, my wife became pregnant, NATURALLY, and on April 12, 2016, our precious daughter, Gabrielle, was born. We recently took a visit to see Dr. Seckin's office to show him our bundle of joy. It was nice to hear him say that our visit made his day. May God bless Dr. Tamer Seckin and his skilled hands.

    I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. 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!

    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.
