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’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,…

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!
