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


Stacey Rosen, MD

I am Dr. Stacey Rosen. I am the vice-president of women’s health at North Shore LIJ’s Katz Institute for Women’s Health. I know I am in a room that for me is a bit unusual. I am a practicing cardiologist and have been for over 25 years but have always been well aware of the fact that women’s health is unique and has been understudied, under diagnosed and under treated for decades.


In 1991 the late Dr. Bernadine Healy, the first female who oversaw the National Institutes of Health along with Dr. Susan Blumenthal, who was then a practicing psychiatrist, started the division of women’s health at the NIH.

    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.…

    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.
