This Mom-of-Two Cannot Thank Dr. Seckin Enough

Casey Reckman can hardly believe her luck. For years, Reckman, 38, struggled with infertility while her body silently battled endometriosis. She was asymptomatic as she went to endless fertility clinic appointments and endured multiple unsuccessful rounds of IVF. But those days are long gone. Reckman is finally a mother of two, a daughter, aged 3 and a 1-month-old son. But she admits becoming a mom wouldn't have been possible without having endometriosis excision surgery with Dr. Tamer Seckin. "We are so grateful for the role you played in the process," Reckman wrote in a heartfelt thank you e-mail to Seckin Endometriosis Center.

But just five years ago, Reckman, who also battles with thrombophilia, a condition that increases the risk of blood clots, wondered whether or not her dream of motherhood would ever be realized. "I was struggling to have the first child, and I ended up at a fertility doctor who suspected that I might have the silent endometriosis or the asymptomatic endometriosis," she says. "He referred me to Dr. Seckin, and I had the first surgery with Dr. Seckin in November of 2013."

Surgery with Seckin lasted four hours, and multiple biopsies tested positive endometriosis. "It was all over the place," recalls Reckman. But the procedure proved to be fertility restoring. Eight months later, she welcomed a daughter. Still, Reckman and her husband felt as though their family wouldn't be complete without one more. They went back for two more IVF rounds, but they were unsuccessful—so Reckman booked another fertility-restoring surgery with Seckin in February 2017. That procedure, which was three years and three months after her first excision surgery lasted only 90 minutes and Seckin didn't find any endometriosis. "I did have some more inflammation in the other parts that they removed. Four months later, Reckman conceived and in March delivered a healthy 7-pound, 9-ounce baby boy. Now a family of four, Reckman says she has her hands full and doesn't plan on trying for baby no. 3

"This is the conclusion of a six-year process for us," says Reckman, "and we know that it could have taken even longer if we haven't been able to work with someone as skilled as Dr. Seckin and as dedicated to his patients as Dr. Seckin."I'm very grateful for the role that he played."

    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 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!

    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.

    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…

    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…
