EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

In the beginning: identification and treatment of nascent endometriosis

Robert Taylor, MD


What a wonderful lecture we just heard about pain and endometriosis. I am so thankful Tamer for your invitation to come here and proposing this very, sort of, cosmological view of endometriosis. Ending endometriosis starts at the beginning. As soon as Tamer suggested that title for the conference I was – in the beginning idea got into my head. I guess the thought that the big bang might really explain all of endometriosis I really like it. Plus, I thought it worked pretty well for Stephen Hawking, maybe our own little textbook we might be able to turn it into a sort of phenomenal, international bestseller as well. But I am not necessarily looking forward to that.


There have been some issues that we have discussed over the last several days regarding this kind of early versus later stages of endometriosis. Obviously there is a stage basis for this as shown to your right where you have got large kissing ovaries and a lot of pelvic inflammation and then stage wise the earlier lesions. There…

    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!

  • 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.

    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…
