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’ve seen many obgyns over the years explaining my monthly symptoms during my period...but eventually it became a daily struggle with these pain. It feels like a poke here and there near my right pelvic region. I was given birth control pills for the past ten years but honestly, it didn’t help at all. I was in bed whenever I…

    Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable. I remember when my gynecologist first told me I needed a laparoscopy. Her exact words were "I can do the surgery, but if you were MY daughter- I'd send you to…

    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!
