My entire family sends their thanks to Dr. Seckin for the wonderful job he has done

My praise and thanks to Dr. Seckin. I would and have recommended anyone who suffers from this disease to see this amazing specialist and surgeon.

I am glowing with joy as I write this testimony because today I have a life without pain. Endometriosis has been the most agonizing part of my life, which I have endured for more than 25 years. At the beginning of my fist menstrual cycle, the pain was so severe that I continually fainted. This was unusual since neither my mother nor my sister had ever experienced the types of symptoms such as continuous bleeding, extreme pain, throbbing and numbness down the legs, heavy bleeding, and a host of other symptoms. My mother took me to the gynecologist who after the first surgery, I was diagnosed with endometriosis and fibroids. I have had several surgeries for these conditions.

Meanwhile, my gynecologist tried all she knew to try to alleviate the pain, by prescribing medications to treat the symptoms, but to no avail. The endometriosis was getting worse, since every minute of my life was consumed with pain and unusual physical indicators; it was taking a toll on my job. I could not focus on anything, I did not feel like myself, and all I wanted to do was sleep.

My mother’s prayers were answered because she kept calling the gynecologist, telling her that there must be something that can be done. At one stage, when the pain got the better of me, I asked the gynecologist to have a hysterectomy, which I was against at all times as this is not a known “cure” for the endometriosis.

After the constant complaint by my mother to the gynecologist, it was suggested that I attend the 2011 Endometriosis Foundation of America’s conference as Dr. Seckin, the world’s best endometriosis specialist would be in attendance. I did as I was advised and made contact with Dr. Seckin.

After the symposium, I made an appointment with Dr. Seckin. I still remember one of the first questions that I was asked by him, “Do you want to have a baby or do you want to be out of pain?” Without hesitation, I said “I wanted to be out of pain”. Dr. Seckin then stated something I respect tremendously, “I cannot promise you anything until I see what is inside.”

Upon completion of a thorough examination by the doctor, with the assistance of his wonderful staff, and my faith in his capabilities, I was ready to have the surgery.

On June 18, 2011, I had my endometriosis surgery accomplished in a detailed manner and without fear. When I awoke, I knew I made the right decision because I was not in pain and it was as though, my brain returned to normal. I remember stating to the Dr. Seckin, “I was not crazy." He said, “No, you had extremely deep endometriosis”.

My praise and thanks to Dr. Seckin. I would and have recommended anyone who suffers from this disease to see this amazing specialist and surgeon.

Being free of pain has given me a new lease in life, all due to the great work of Dr. Seckin and his team.

My entire family sends their thanks to Dr. Seckin for the wonderful job he has done. He is not only the greatest, but most of all, he has become a part of my family. There is hope for me to possibly have a child, but my greatest delight is that I am not in pain.

Warmest regards,

Golda T.

    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…

  • 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…

    I am so grateful to Dr Seckin and Dr. Goldstein. My experience was nothing short of amazing. I was misdiagnosed with the location of my fibroids and have had a history of endometriosis.

    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,…

  • Rebecca Black

    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.

My surgery went without a hitch and I'm healing very well. He and…
