His wisdom and insight have been invaluable

After doing hours and hours of research, I ran across the name of Dr. Tamer Seckin in New York City. As I read further, I found that he had actually been the one to patent his excision technique that allows him to remove endometriosis at its deepest level, all without harming the sensitive nerves and organs that are involved.

I have always been a rebel. Time and time again I have bucked the system, not trusted the system, and questioned the overall basic integrity of the system. It was with this mentality that I demanded an exploratory surgery be done by my OB/GYN to look for endometriosis. She thought I was nuts, but proceeded to schedule what she said would be a “30 minute look-see”. 3 hours of heavy ablation (burning) later she decided to agree with her patient’s original self-diagnosed case of endometriosis. I was given two options; one option was Lupron, and the other was a hysterectomy. After hours of tireless research, I knew that neither of those options presented a cure. In the months that followed the ablation procedure, my pain became much worse, and the presence of menstrual blood in my stool each month became a common occurrence. After a colonoscopy was performed, it was confirmed that a portion of my colon wall had been infiltrated by endometriosis. After doing hours and hours of research, I ran across the name of Dr. Tamer Seckin in New York City. As I read further, I found that he had actually been the one to patent his excision technique that allows him to remove endometriosis at its deepest level, all without harming the sensitive nerves and organs that are involved. After an encouraging phone consult with Dr. Seckin, my surgery was scheduled for the end of August, 2013. I flew from Northeast Mississippi to New York for this surgery. The procedure lasted approximately 5 hours, and 7 inches of colon were removed. The amount and extensiveness of endometrial growths were astounding. It was through Dr. Seckin’s excision techniques and careful preservation of tissue samples that I was later diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. While it finally was given the name of Primary Peritoneal Low Grade Serous Carcinoma, the cause is the deeply infiltrative endometriosis. The tumors that were removed in my hysterectomy were malignant at a stage 3, but the remaining cells are pre-cancerous. Were it not for Dr. Seckin and his excision technique, I have no doubt that I would have been dead in 5 years. His wisdom and insight have been invaluable, and I know that my life would have been cut considerably shorter were it not for his expertise.

    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…

  • 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…

    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,…

    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 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…

    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…
