Shakira's Story

Dr. Seckin performed my surgery early July; I was home the same day, and within two weeks I was feeling back to normal. Needless to say, my uncomfortable cramps are no longer, I have no scar tissue in utero, and to the naked eye, you would think I scratched myself -- the surgical scar is so small. Dr. Seckin did…

In March of 2007, I was told by a doctor that my inability to become pregnant was because of a condition that was irreparable, and had given me adoption options. Devastated by that diagnosis, I sought a second opinion, Dr. V., who said it was a very large fibroid blocking my cervix. Dr. V. gave me an option of having the surgery performed by him via bikini cut c-section, or referring me to Dr. Seckin for a laparoscopic myomectomy which I had never heard of before. Not being sure of what it was, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Seckin for a third opinion, and to discuss Dr. V.'s options.

Dr. Seckin confirmed that the fibroid was the issue, and described the surgery to me that would be performed as an out-patient procedure, and a significantly less recovery time than the c-section surgery. I thought about it for a few weeks, and decided that this was a great choice. Dr. Seckin performed my surgery early July, I was home the same day, and within two weeks I was feeling back to normal. Needless to say, my uncomfortable cramps are no longer, I have no scar tissue in utero, and to the naked eye, you would think I scratched myself (the surgical scar is so small). Dr. Seckin did an excellent job! I haven't tried to conceive yet, but I'm all healed up and ready to go thanks to him.

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…
