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.

    Prior to meeting Dr. Seckin and reading his book, “The Doctor Will See You Now”, I knew little to nothing about endometriosis. I was led to believe that endometriosis was not a serious condition. I was told that the pain could be managed by taking the “pill”. I was told that the cysts on my ovaries were harmless. I was…

    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…
