I had my laparoscopic surgery in December of 2008 and I feel great

When I went for my initial visit with Dr. Seckin it turns out I had a fibroid tumor and needed to have it removed. I had mentioned to him about my concerns since I never had surgery in my life and I wanted the option to be open for me to have children.

I would like to share my experience regarding Dr. Seckin. I had two gyn doctors before I met Dr. Seckin. The first doctor had retired and a friend of mine recommended the second doctor. During my first visit to the second doctor I had given him my history that I had developed cysts during my early 20s and 30s. He proceeded to do a pap smear and I had advised him it would be best to also do a sonogram due to my history. He told me that it was not necessary and if I was not planning on having children any time soon that he would see me in two years. I was appalled at the way he handled my situation and decided I would not go back to him. A friend of mine had recently had surgery for endometriosis and I asked her about her gyn doctor.  She highly recommended Dr. Seckin and I immediately made an appointment to see him (3 months after seeing the previous doctor).

When I went for my initial visit with Dr. Seckin it turns out I had a fibroid tumor and needed to have it removed. I had mentioned to him about my concerns since I never had surgery in my life and I wanted the option to be able to have children. He assured me that the surgery would be laparoscopic and that a hysterectomy was not an option. During the surgery I not only had the tumor but I also had endometriosis but Dr. Seckin was able to perform the surgery and keep my reproductive organs in tact. He is an exceptional doctor and I would not trust anyone else but him to decide what is best for me.

I had my laparoscopic surgery in December of 2008 and I feel great. The 3 incisions that he made during my surgery are no longer visible.

    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!

    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…
