Author of Recognizing and Treating Endometriosis

Author of Recognizing and Treating Endometriosis In 2016, Dr. Seckin wrote and published his first full-length book, Recognizing and Treating Endometriosis: The Doctor Will See You Now. The book is written at a level that everyone with ties to this disease can relate to and understand, but it is also written for doctors with good intentions who lack the knowledge of how to diagnose and treat endometriosis. This book is for the “Endo Warriors,” women determined to let the world know their stories so that every woman with this disease—from the thirteen-year-old girl who is being told that her pain is “part of becoming a woman” to the woman who has been misdiagnosed for decades—knows she is not alone. Yes, her pain is real. No, she is not crazy. Yes, there is hope.

    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.

    Fast forward 5 years to find out incidentally I had a failing kidney. My left kidney was only functioning at 18%.

After a few months, no one could figure…

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.

  • 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,…
