Sheena W. Testimony: A Magical Surgery

Sheena W. Testimony: A Magical Surgery

I write this review two days after my extensive excision surgery with the incredible medical magician that is Dr. Tamer Seckin

In March, after being diagnosed by a radiologist with a nearly 6-centimeter endometrioma, or chocolate cyst, on my left ovary, I ventured to the SeckinEndometriosis Center in the hopes that their surgery, could save me, as they have saved hundreds, if not thousands of women worldwide.

I found Dr. Seckin in the nick of time. In lieu of me deciding when I could commit to surgery, my endometrioma ruptured on April 5th and my husband rushed me to Lenox Hill Hospital as I alerted Dr. Seckin and his office. Dr. Seckin pulled every single string even before he arrived in the operating room to make sure I wanted for absolutely nothing. Upon arrival, I was whisked through the red tape as his team of helpful residents descended upon me and assuaged the pain pre-op with anesthesia.

My surgery lasted nearly four hours and carried on into the late evening. Dr. Seckin carefully and painstakingly removed the disease from both of my ovaries and preserved both, and in doing so, preserved my ability to one day become a mother. As a preventative, he also removed my inflamed appendix, a common feeding ground for endo. When I woke up, after this emotional journey we went on together, Dr. Seckin looked at me and said with a big smile, "You are perfect on the inside."

I owe my life and renewed livelihood to this man who meticulously inspected my abdomen for any and all traces of endometriosis that had been quietly leeching away at me. I am an editor of a national magazine who is responsible for a great deal of content. Content that requires my good health so that I may focus and multi-task without being encumbered by heavy, clotty periods, killer cramps and burning sciatica pain running down both of my legs. This would not have been made possible without the Seckin Endometriosis Center.

From the moment I met Dr. Seckin, I immediately recognized his passion to help me, and I felt refreshed to know he could be as angry as I was at all of the gynecologists who had failed me before him. His peers at Lenox Hill are equally in awe of him as I am. Seckin is a visionary and a caped crusader on the front lines in the fight against endo. I am blessed to have been healed by his hands and I have no hesitation to recommend his expertise to anyone who is suffering from this wicked, wicked disease.

Thank you to my doctor, Dr.Seckin and thank you to the Seckin EndometriosisCenter.

    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.

  • Angela Aro

    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…

  • Carla

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis. Dr. Seckin was the one who accurately diagnosed me. Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein really care about their patients and it shows. They listened to my concerns,…

    Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein radically changed my quality of life. They treat their patients with dignity & respect that I've personally never seen in the literally 25+ doctors I've seen for endometriosis. This summer, I had a surgery with Dr. Seckin & Goldstein. It was my first with them, but my 5th endo surgery. I couldn't believe the difference,…

  • Megan Rafael Moreno

    I was in pain for 2 years. I was getting no answers, and because dr Goldstein and dr seckins were willing to see and treat me I'm finally feeling almost back to normal. They were very down to earth and helpful in my time of need. Dr Goldstein was easy to talk to and caring, she took care of me…

    Dr. Seckin is one of the best endometriosis surgeon. Every time I go to the office, he really listens to me and is always concerned about my issues. Dr Seckin's office staff are a delight and they always work with me. I feel I can leave everything to them and they will take care of it. Thank you to the…

  • Rebecca Black

    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…

    I'll never stop praising Dr. Seckin and his team. He literally gave me back my life.

  • 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…

  • Anita Schillhorn

    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…
