As much as I don't like posting personal info it is endometriosis month and a disease my daughter suffers with. She is in the hospital now and ended up with complications and a 2nd emergency surgery.
It's been a tough week. Dr Seckin, a leading endo specialist and her doctor is a special, caring person who I am forever grateful for. I can't ever thank you enough for your care of her.

Dr. Seckin is an amazing physician. I had excision surgery by Dr. Seckin on 2/17. Because my case was so complex, I had multiple services on my case. Every physician on his team was amazing. They all work so seamlessly together. I was admitted to Lenox Hill Hospital for 7 days. The care I received was phenomenal. From the physicians, residents, nursing staff, and ancillary staff. All the staff in his office are just as amazing. I can't thank Kim enough. Every request I've asked was done within 24 hours. Staff was also very responsive to emails. She sent clinical to my insurance company and helped with the approval of my surgery being paid 100% by my insurance company. I can't thank Dr. Seckin and his team Dr. Stavropoulos, Dr. Ansari, and Dr. Brodherson enough. I'm hopeful and so looking forward to a better quality of life. Thank you Dr. Seckin for listening to me and validating my feelings. Thank you for playing such an integral part in the endo community. I'm forever grateful. ��� more »

Today marks one month since my surgery and every day I feel a new difference! I went through my first cycle few weeks after surgery and it was a lot more tolerable than before. I didn't have any nausea, extremely little bloating, and no constipation. I've had terrible period cramps since I was 12 and yes I was told that it is normal. Nausea was something I dealt with everyday, fatigue on a daily basis, and constipation. My pain was so painful I would faint or throw up. Went to regular doctors and they mentioned it was normal. Eventually I went to a gynecologist and he said I can take birth control, I immediately said no. After I got home did a lot of research and found Dr. Seckin. I reached out to a few of his patients and I didn't hear anything but good things about him. I was very determined to have him to surgery on me. So I FLEW IN FROM CALIFORNIA to New York. I felt a sense of peacefulness and calmness when I met him. I trusted him right away and I don't regret it at all. Watching the video of how he did my surgery is a work of art, it truly is a blessing to meet a doctor that has so much knowledge and experience with what he does. I truly am happy to call him my doctor, I can't wait to go back to New York to see him again. I mean how often do you get say that about a doctor right?! My parents were crying out of excitement after my cycle because they didn't hear the yelling and crying like before. Thank you so much Dr. Seckin more »

Dr. Seckin gave me my life back!!! For 5 years I thought I was crazy. I was nauseous, had continuous right lower abdominal pain, diarrhea, and felt weak all the time. I was told I had Crohn's disease and after 3 surgeries to remove roughly 2 feet of small intestine, I was still no better. The weird part was that all the doctors I would go to see said there was no reason for me to have these symptoms, because there was no active inflammation in my intestines. What they failed to mention was that I had severe endometriosis the covered the majority of the portion of the bowel that had been removed. No one told me I had endometriosis, therefore I was never treated. When it was finally discovered by a different doctor, I spent 2 years trying different treatments. None of them helped. I was absolutely miserable. I felt so sick every day and it was getting progressively worse. I'm a surgical nurse and my symptoms got so bad I had to take a leave of absence from work. my primary care doctor told me that I was an anxious person so my nausea was probably related to that. My gynecologist told me I had bowel issues so I would probably always feel like that. Then I was told the only way to help me was to have a hysterectomy, at the age of 28. I was even considering it because the pain, weakness, nausea and diarrhea, not to mention my periods, were so terrible. Then I found Dr. Seckin!! He new immediately what was wrong with me and what I needed to feel better, and it wasn't a hysterectomy. In one appointment I had a deep excision surgery scheduled for a couple months later with a colo-rectal surgeon and a plastic surgeon assisting. The colo-rectal surgeon was on standby in case of any bowel issues and the plastic surgeon revised all of my previous scars that left my abdomen badly deformed. I had no idea a doctor could be so thorough and have everything planned out so quickly. I met with all the surgeons within a couple of days. Dr. Seckin had thought of everything.
I am happy to report that 6 months following my surgery I am completely symptom free. I never thought I would see the day. Going from thinking you are crazy because no one is listening to you, to being symptom free is slightly surreal. I owe my life to Dr. Seckin. I'm able to work a demanding job without difficulty, something I couldn't do a year ago. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with endometriosis, Dr. Seckin is the doctor for you. If only there were more doctors that cared so much for their patients like Dr. Seckin does.

Tamer cares so much about this disease and it's removal that he has dedicated his life's work to it. I for one am so grateful, and feel so much better. It has only been one day over 2 weeks and I feel like a new person...my life is BACK and the possibilities are limited only to me! The pain Is gone, I am clean...over 30 specimens removed plus cysts, etc. When I saw the video footage, my husband and I both were amazed. Tamer is a master at what he does, truly a gifted surgeon. more »

Dr. Seckin is a miracle worker. There may not be a "cure" for endometriosis, but there is hope with the right care and surgical treatment. After 21 years of unbelievable pain I am now a new woman. I only wish there were more doctors like Seckin. � more »

I have been suffering with endometriosis for almost 20 years and have endured 14 surgeries attempting to stop this vicious disease from returning. Even after a hysterectomy 10 years ago, my endometriosis returned, stronger than ever. The pain I have endured over the past several years is indescribible. My children, husband and friends have all watched me in agony, preventing me from doing so many things that I loved to do. Just last year after an extensive internet search out of desperation, I found an endometriosis specialty hospital and felt a moment of hope, that they would be able to help. Because of my prior hysterectomy and countless laparoscopies, this specialty hospital turned me away. I was devastated and had nowhere to turn. I began to accept the fact that I would be in pain for the rest of my life and was told by several doctors, that I should try meditation to help me come to grips with my chronic pain since there was nothing else that they could do. I was almost ready to give up, until one last internet search brought me to Dr. Seckin's website. After reading his impressive bio and his credentials, I decided that he would be my last hope. My initial visit with Dr. Seckin was long and exhausting, as he read through my extensive surgical reports and medical history. He told me that he could not make miracles happen, but he would try his hardest to get me my life back. I am 2 weeks Post-surgery and have NEVER felt better. My surgery took 2 and 1/2 hours ( in the past they were 30 minutes), so I know he took his time and left no stone unturned. When I met with Dr. Seckin in recovery, he was optimistic, caring and had a wonderful bedside manner. He gave me a big hug and told me that he felt good about the surgery. I later found out he removed extensive endometriosis, as well as ovarian tissue that either grew back, or was never fully removed, causing my endometrioisis to thrive. He sat with me and my husband and showed me the video of my surgery, explaining every step of the procedure.
I am so so happy that I found Dr. Seckin- I wish that I would've found him 10 years ago, because I know he would have saved me from a hysterectomy and countless other surgeries. In all of the years that I have battled this horrific disease and all of the doctors who attended to me, nobody has been more thorough or knowledgeable or caring, than Dr. Seckin. He is truly the finest endometrioisis doctor that anyone will ever find . I am so blessed to have found him and am confident that my days of suffering have ended.

I just want to thank Dr.Seckin and Dr.Ansari and all of the surgical staff at Lenox Hill Hospital for what they have done to my wife.
After several visits to several hospitals and doctors all a
round over the last year all doctors have told my wife she was ok and that there is just some cysts that popped that's what her pain was. My wife had done extensive research and discovered Dr.Seckin and had her first appointment with him in early September. Endometriosis runs in her family and her pain over the years has gotten worse, to the point where it was affecting several parts of her body. Dr.Seckin on the first visit discovered a mass that has grown and attached itself to several organs and locations in her body via a rectal exam. Funny how this was missed so many times as not even a month before she was in a diffrent hospital and had to get a colonoscopy and they told her she was fine.
On September 28th my wife went to the emergency room at Lenox Hill Hospital in severe pain. On September 30th my wife had a 7 hour surgery to remove the endometriosis and the mass. Dr.Seckin brought in Dr.Ansari to help with the procedure, and the mass was over 5cm large and attached and protruding her bowels and sitting on her tailbone and nerves as well. She had to have a bowel resection and reconstruction of other parts of her organs as well.
It has now been over 2 weeks since her surgery and she already is starting to feel as if she has a new life. No more cancelling plans due to pain, no more worry about when the pain will come and being cautious with what she is doing, and finally full nights of comfortable sleep without waking up.
My wife has even said the post surgery pain of the healing of her insides and incisions aren't nearly as bad as the pain she endured from day to day.

Thank you Dr.Seckin for taking the time and effort you have with my wife's case.
And God bless all who suffer from this disease, may you find the peace and help that you need.

I am so grateful for Dr.Seckin. I have been suffering with Endometriosis since I was 12. The pain was constant and took over my life. After many doctor appointments I was finally diagnosed with Endometriosis at the age of 20. That's when I had my first of seven surgeries. After receiving my diagnoses my husband and I started trying for children and after 8 years, with the help of a fertility doctor, we had a baby girl! My miracle baby!
The pain never ended, it would be less after the surgeries for about a few months, but it always came back stronger. Finally at the age of 35 I came across Dr.Seckin with the help of my sister in law. At this point I have had enough, I was in constant pain, I was having bowel obstructions due to the endometriosis, which no doctor ever confirmed but I just knew it. I was hospitalized for weeks at a time, I wasn't able to be the mother I wanted to be because of the pain. I didn't want my daughter to see me in pain anymore. Enough was enough. I lived with the pain for so long that that was all I knew. Dr.Seckin promised to give me my life back, and he kept his promise!!!
It has been a month since the surgery, Dr.Seckin removed 18 lesions, my appendix, I had a bowel resection and a hysterectomy leaving only my ovaries. With his team of doctors I felt I was in great hands, and I was. Everyone was great, from his staff, Brittany, Kim and Lucy to his team of doctors and the hospital staff.
I am pain free, and am so grateful! I am excited to start my life!

Words cannot describe our gratitude and respect for Dr. Seckin. My wife and I struggled with infertility for five years. After multiple rounds of failed IVF, we decided to switch fertility specialists. Our new reproductive physician had suspicions of endometriosis (even though my wife was asymptomatic) and referred us to an ob-gyn surgeon who performed the laparoscopy which revealed moderate endometriosis.

Another year passed and the frustration continued. During a routine sonogram a suspicious cyst was noticed. The decision to delay another IVF cycle and perform another surgery was not an easy one. After thorough research and recommendations we were lead to Dr. Tamer Seckin. Our first visit with Dr. Seckin was quite memorable. After a thorough history and physical examination, I handed him the operative report. A minute later, he took off his glasses, glanced up at us, and ripped up the paper. Dr. Seckin succinctly stated, "This report is rubbish. I do not burn, I cut." My wife was a bit surprised by his demeanor, however, I was not. Being a physician anesthesiologist myself, I interact with surgeons on a daily basis and am used to heir personalities. Dr. Seckin promised to help us and scheduled the surgery quickly. Three hours later, Dr. Seckin emerged from the operating room to give me a full report. The endometriosis was quite extensive and even affected my wife's appendix. Dr. Seckin also had a colo-rectal surgeon present during the operation. He gave us his cell phone number with specific post-operative instructions and to not hesitate to call with any questions.

One year later, my wife became pregnant, NATURALLY, and on April 12, 2016, our precious daughter, Gabrielle, was born. We recently took a visit to see Dr. Seckin's office to show him our bundle of joy. It was nice to hear him say that our visit made his day. May god bless Dr. Tamer Seckin and his skilled hands.

I just had my final post op appt with Dr seckin. I met him and his nurses and staff back in march. Before I met them I felt completely hopeless and thought I would live in pain and agony my whole life. When I found out that he is out of network and that I dont have any out of network benefits I completely wanted to give up. I called up and talked to Kim. Kim told me to get my records from my GYN and a note from her explaining why I need to see Dr seckin. She also asked the same from me. I wrote a letter to my insurance company explaining how endometriosis effects my life and how I can benefit from seeing Dr Seckin. Three weeks later my insurance company approved EVERYTHING. I have not paid a single dollar out of pocket and I even stayed over one night in the hospital after surgery. I urge those with endometriosis and trouble with insurance to not give up.

Since surgery I have been a new person. I finally am on a regular schedule with my period and the pain has dramatically increased. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Dr seckin to any woman with endo or experiencing the symptoms of endo! He has changed my life and his staff are the most kind and caring group of ladies.

Yesterday my daughter and I sat in Dr. Seckin's office for the last visit after the operation three weeks ago. We listened to yet another women's story on how she struggled for 20 years and now she has been pain free for two years. You learn a lot sitting there. All kinds of stories with the same denominator ...
PAIN.... This experience has been nothing but terrific... My daughter is now free of that constant pain she has been living with for so many years. My thanks to Dr. Seckin and to his amazing STAFF !!!!! I am forever grateful ...

I was diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 29. That is not where my story began with struggling with the pain. That began when I first started to get my period. My cramps were terrible. After seeing 12... Yes 12 obgyn's to see what I could do for the pain, I finally found one who mentioned endometriosis. He performed the diagnostic laparoscopy and then pumped me full of Lupron. In the 10 years since I have had 4 more surgeries. With the most recent one in July of 2016 being the best one yet. Since I had Endo I researched the hell out of it. I have become a member of many different groups online for support and to learn new things or treatments. I always heard of Dr Seckin and even went to The Endometriosis Foundation of America's Blossom Ball as a volunteer a few years ago. I never thought Dr Seckin was an obtainable Doctor. He was the main Doctor with the endometriosis Foundation of America, how could he just accept walk in clients like myself. Well, a few years later I decided to at least send him my records and see how it goes. I got his response " I read your case. Brittany from my office will assist you to see me. I will my do my best to help you. Take care!" Within a day my first appointment was scheduled! I was so nervous yet excited. My husband Rey and I sat across for Dr Seckin explaining everything I go through and how I feel. Since I was more local than some other patients who fly in, he had time to get some tests done before we proceeded. Unfortunately I have adenomyosis as well so since I wanted pain free, he told me that I would need a hysterectomy. He was standing and almost pacing as he knows this is a difficult decision to make as a 39 year old, let alone tell her of this being the only thing. I decided enough is enough and let's move forward to scheduling the excision surgery along with the complete hysterectomy leaving just my ovaries. July 21, 2016 came fast... I was scared but ready even more so when Mother Nature wanted to give me one more cycle of pain 2 days prior to surgery. I had 13 endometriosis lesions removed along with my hysterectomy. Dr Seckin and the rest of the staff at Lenox Hill were amazing. I was treated so nicely and everyone was helpful. As I left Dr Seckin's office today I was reminded again that great people are everywhere looking to help others. I am lucky that I found Dr Seckin. He has changed my life. I look forward to telling my success story over and over again as no woman should ever have to endure so much to function like we should. To Dr Seckin's staff, Brittany, Kim and Lucy... You help all of us with your enthusiastic personalities and helpful disposition. Thank you all, I truly cannot thank you all enough. See you for my 6 month checkup! -Amy Montes de Oca more »

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 pain and experience with endometriosis and he assured me that he would do all he could and be as thorough as possible and remove every bit of disease through surgery. While the cost made me hesitate, I felt like I needed to move forward with surgery in order to get my life back. I am so glad I went through with it! I believe it was worth every penny. The day of my surgery I was very nervous but the hospital staff was very helpful, professional and kind. Dr. Seckin was took his time with me, was comforting and made me rest easy knowing I was in good hands. The surgery was both very thorough and very successful. Recovery went well and once I went through my first full menstrual cycle, I realized what a huge change had occurred. I was almost completely pain free. I still took a few advil at the beginning of my cycle but that was a giant improvement from the half bottle of advil AND tylenol I used to take throughout the first few days of my cycle before I had surgery. I was able to go out, meet with friends, work and live my life without the horrendous cramping, backaches, stomach aches, nausea and the allover blackout pain I had previously experienced! I could not believe I was actually smiling while on me period!!! I am now almost 3 months out of surgery and I feel great... and each cycle is getting easier. I am so grateful I found Dr. Seckin and I am thrilled with the thorough and careful work he did with me. He and his office staff are excellent and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be suffering from endometriosis. more »

*I know this is very long but if one person reads this and says , "Hmmm something isn't right " and seeks out help, it would be worth it *

I'm 18 years old and I am on my way to
college in 3 weeks- PAIN FREE!!! I've always had very painful periods but last August when my period came, the pain stayed and it NEVER left until 6 days ago when Dr.Seckin removed 26 lesions, 24 positive for endometriosis.

In September 2015, I went to a gynecologist who put me on birth control and gave me a prescription for pain meds and things went from bad to worse in 3 months. In January, I was then referred to a gastroenterologist-another dead end. In February, I saw a naturopathic doctor who spotted "reproductive stress" on a blood test. I took supplements for 3 months with no relief. I felt incredibly frustrated and really started to wonder if everyday for the rest of my life I would feel like this. With this being said, I truly believe that they meant well and gave me the best care that they knew how to give - but there is simply not enough awareness about endometriosis, and that is something that NEEDS to change. The first time I heard the word "endometriosis" was in September when my gynecologist mentioned it and like most people would've done- I stayed up all night learning about this awful disease instead of studying for my 3 tests the next day. I never missed a day of school or work and also volunteered every week despite extreme exhaustion and severe pain that went from around my rib age area all the way down my legs and into my back. People would look at me and make comments like "you look so depressed" or sometimes I would zone out on them. The problem with endometriosis is that it is invisible. Just because you don't "look" sick doesn't mean you aren't sick. If someone has a broken leg, they have a cast on and people would understand if they looked upset, were struggling etc. My skin was my "cast" and nobody could have ever guessed the hell I was going through on a daily basis. I slept with a heating pad on the highest setting EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT in an attempt to somewhat dull the pain-creating burns on my stomach. I had a lot of trouble sleeping, when I finally fell asleep I woke up absolutely exhausted and in excruciating pain. There were plenty of mornings where I would wake up crying because the pain was so shocking and intense and I would still drag myself to school and anywhere else I had to be for the day. My mom would always say," Lex, stay home from school today." And I refused every single time because I knew that if I would've said yes once, I would have probably missed 95% of my senior year of high school. Physically I was there but mentally I was in another place counting down the hours until I could go back to bed and curl up in the fetal position with my heating pad.

After doing some research, we came across Dr.Seckin and it was like a breath of fresh air. After going through the website, we discovered that he had written a book about endometriosis. My mom and I were glued to it and had tears and chills reading this amazing book. I instantly knew that he would be able to help me and scheduled an appointment immediately. After telling him my symptoms he said,"I believe you, you're here for a reason." Somehow I managed not to cry. Finally I had someone who didn't look at me like I was some crazy teenager and believed that the pain I was feeling was very real.

I am currently 6 days post op and I can't remember the last time I felt this great, which is so crazy and amazing to be able to say. I noticed a difference immediately. The "pain" I feel right now is surgical pain NOT pain from endometriosis. Back pain- gone! Leg pain-gone!
Everyone on his team whether it be in the office or at the hospital were also so incredibly kind, helpful and understanding.
If you suffer with pain (not only physically but mentally and emotionally) from this monster like I DID, I would highly recommend seeing Dr.Seckin. There are no words to describe how truly amazing he is and I will forever be grateful for everything he has done for me. He put a true smile back on my face (something I haven't had for a while) and I'm so thankful for that. Thank you Dr.Seckin, thank you.

MOM: after a year + of dealing with the anguish and helplessness of not being able to help my daughter, she has finally said the words that I have dreamed of hearing....I feel so much better!!!
Dr. Seckin was a soft place to fall. Put your faith in God 1st and Dr. Seckin 2nd and you will surely be on the right road.

After being diagnosed in 2010, and undergoing two ablasion surgeries, I though that I would never be able to live a normal life. Countless doctors told me that I would have to live with the pain, and there was nothing I could do.

Finally I found Dr. Seckin. I knew right away he would be the one to help me. The office staff, especially Kim helped me fight my insurance company to get them to cover the surgery, when other doctors wouldn't help at all.

3 weeks out from surgery and I already feel different. The pain is getting better every day. The doctor did such a beautiful job that 'recovering' from a more invasive surgery was actually easier!

I can't wait to update everyone with how I feel in 3 months. Thank you to Dr. Seckin and the entire staff for giving me back hope!

1 week ago today Dr. Seckin saved my life. On the morning of Friday 6/3 2016, I checked into Lenox Hill Hospital for what was supposed to be a 2 hour excision surgery with partial hysterectomy, maybe a full hysterectomy. Dr. Seckin recommended we have Surgeon and co-lifesaver Dr. Panagiotis A. Manolas nearby since I have shown some bowel symptoms over the last 6 months. I was prepared for all of this and was totally ok with it. I am 42, I have a 13 year old child, I was through with the dream of having more children and I have suffered with Endo for almost 30 years.
I went into that day knowing Dr. Seckin was about to change my life to a pain free life. I was excited but naturally nervous about the procedure. Approximately 7 hours later I was waking up in recovery having had bowel and colon surgery due to endometriosis on my bowel and in my colon. The extent of this was certainly unexpected to all of us.
And this is where I feel Dr Seckin and Dr Manolas saved my life. As I said before I am 42 years old, I am a mother, I am a wife, and even though I suffered with endometriosis for more than 1/2 my life, I do have a great life. What happens to that life if I do nothing? If I wait a year, 6 months? A Colostomy Bag? Temporarily maybe Permanently? It's really hard to imagine. There was no colostomy bag for me, Dr Manolas and Dr Seckin were able to fuse my colon and remove the endo off of my bowel. All by Laparoscopy. So exactly a week later I'm recovering nicely at home after a tough five day stay at Lenox Hill Hospital. Yes there's going to be a little adjustment to the changes in my body, but I can tell you this... Whatever pain I'm feeling today is nothing compared to the endometriosis pain I suffered from before.
Dr. Seckin, thank you for caring about me and for doing EVERYTHING you could to make sure I woke up from this surgery Endo free.
I would love to thank Dr Seckins team because it is a team effort for sure. Thank you to the office staff Lucy, Brittany and Kim.. Dr Seckins residents like Karly and the many others I can't remember the names of. They came 2 sometimes 3 times a day to check on me.
#DrYaffe and staff for all your help with pre testing
Dr Manolas, my-lifesaver. He is the most calming presence I have ever been around. He would come into my hospital room which he did everyday and I immediately felt safe. Thank you for being so brilliant and thank you for making sure I didn't wake up to that bag. I know how close we were and you both must have considered it.
Private Attending Dr. Sandra Gelbard, you felt like a friend to me. You kept me informed every step of the way. You made yourself accessible to me anytime and you really made the hospital stay so much easier. You are brilliant and beautiful inside & out.
So thats part of my story. So to you, the girl, the woman suffering with Endo if you're reading this you're looking at the BEST surgeon. You have to know that there isn't another surgeon more experienced at treating this disease. He WILL do whatever it takes to help you. It may not be cheap (but what are your bowels worth to you?) it may not be easy. It will hurt. But you can't wait. Trust your instincts and get the help you need, want and deserve!
