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

From adolescence through menopause

Sarah Berga, MD

 

In my training I am really a neuroscientist, in my practice every day I see patients who nobody else wants to take care of anymore. I am asked to solve all sorts of unusual endocrine problems. We make a lot of diagnoses and a lot of referrals to standard endocrinologists because we find a lot of endocrine disease in our infertility and endocrine populations. Really the inspiration for today’s talk is to teach everyone a little endocrinology who wants to lean it. I never try to force anyone into this but it is important to understand that not all hormones are the same and how to use them wisely.

Part of actually being able to sift and sort through the recommendations is understanding some of the biology.

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great.

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!
