Dr. Seckin is presenting his own method of diagnosing endometriosis in early stages in Melbourne Australia.

Dr. Seckin will be presenting a lecture titled, “Blue Contrast Techniques for Visualizing Subtle Endometriosis, Controversy or Fact?” during the endometriosis session of the The International Society for Gynecologic Endoscopy (ISGE) 24th Annual Congress in conjunction with the Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy and Surgery 25th Annual Scientific Meeting in Melbourne Australia. Titled, “Controversies and Challenges in Minimally Invasive Surgery,” this Congress brings together the leading minds in gynecological medical care and research, including Dr. Tamer Seckin.

Abstract


Page 51

Endometriosis, a disease affecting approximately 10% of the female population, requires laparoscopy and histologic confirmation of diagnosis. Laparoscopic recognition of endometriosis lesions can be extremely challenging even for the experienced surgeon due to the protean appearances of endometriosis. The visual appearance of what is classically described as pigmented, dark lesions are easily spotted while the non-pigmented, more prevalent white lesions, also known as "subtle" lesions, pose difficulty for recognition. This is due to a wide unrestricted light spectrum, light reflection, and gas pressure used in laparoscopic surgery. Eliminating these optical illusions, Aqua Blue Contrast Technique (ABCT) is a novel revolutionary method that aids the surgeon's eye to recognize subtle peritoneal abnormalities. Distinct morphological features detected with Aqua Blue Contrast Technique is eventually confirmed as inflammation and endometriosis with pathological samples stained with Hemotoxylin and eosin (HE) and by using immunohistochemical staining of CD-10, for which it is often positive for both, with stromal cells alone more commonly found than glands/stroma.
The ABCT easily identifies normal peritoneum and its texture is easily identified. This method assists the surgeon to target the lesion by a clear recognition of subtle peritoneal changes in endometriosis. Assisted by enhancing contrast and eliminating the yellow and red spectrums, the surgeon is now more easily able to perform tedious and precisely accurate excision surgery without unnecessary removal of the normal peritoneum. Aqua Blue Technique not only will improve results for excision surgery, but also opens a future window of understanding and likely will bring a new definition to our aged concepts about endometriosis.

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%. During this time, I was preparing all my documents to send to Dr. Seckin to review. However, with this new information I put everything on hold and went to a urologist. After a few months, no one could figure…

  • Erin Brehm

    I had a wonderful experience working with Dr. Seckin and his team before, during and after my surgery. I came to Dr. Seckin having already had laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis 5 years prior, with a different surgeon. My symptoms and pain had returned, making my life truly challenging and my menstrual cycle unbearable. Dr. Seckin was quick to validate my…

    I came to Dr. Seckin after years of dealing with endometriosis and doctors who didn't fully understand the disease. He quickly ascertained what needed to be done, laid out the options along with his recommendation and gave me the time to make the right decision for me. My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…

  • Nicholette Sadé

    Dr. Seckin brought me back to life! I am now 3 weeks into my recovery after my laparoscopy surgery, and I feel like a new and improved woman! Being diagnosed with Endometriosis, then 25yrs old in 2015, and discovering the severity of my case being stage 4, made me devastated. Dr. Seckin's vast knowledge of the disease, sincere empathy, and…

    My wife had her laparoscopic excision surgery to remove endometriosis with Dr. Seckin on Jan 30, 2014. She doesn't write online reviews so I'm writing this on her behalf. I accompanied her with each office visit she had. The staff--Lucy and Kim, are very friendly, warm and professional. Dr. Seckin was excellent in every capacity. He spent a lot of…

  • Karen N

    I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 19. I saw several Endometriosis "Specialists" since then, had a few laproscopic surgeries to "remove" the endometriosis and continued to be in pain. I had a hysterectomy in 2012 and was told this would stop the pain once and for all. No such luck! Tired of spending days in bed with a heating pad,…

    I researched and found Dr. Seckin after dealing with years of doctors who couldn't help me or refused to go the extra mile for their patients. I have to say I am truly blessed to have found such a compassionate and talented doctor. He is exquisite with everything he does, and both his team at the office and surgical team…

    Dr. Seckin is a very skilled surgeon. There are not many doctors like him that truly understand the effects of endometriosis. I am lucky to have found him. The staff is wonderful too.

    Dr. Seckin truly LOVES what he does and cares about his patients from the bottom of his heart. My life has already changed in 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more grateful.
