One week ago today, I was just coming out of surgery with Dr. Seckin, Dr. Goldstein and their amazing team at Lennox Hill. I've been struggling to find the words to describe how it feels to have my life back. Despite surgery being longer and slightly more complex than originally anticipated, they literally identified and fixed a significant amount of problems that hadn't been caught by my previous laparoscopy surgeon a year ago. My level of pain, exhaustion, nausea, vomiting, bleeding, and depression grew so severe after my first operation that I was essentially housebound. I lost my job and often thought that my situation was hopeless. I never imagined that I would be this person - so sure of the fact that there IS hope. Even though I had just had surgery, everyone in my life was shocked at how good I looked - within hours they had transformed me back to myself. Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein gave me more attention and care in the past month than I've received from multiple doctors over the past year. They, along with their office staff, truly care about their patients. My only regret would be not seeing them sooner! The minute I walked into the office and met everyone, my husband and I knew that we were in the right place. Run, don't walk, to see them! more »

Dr. Seckin performed surgery on me in April 2017. I am feeling tremendously better; like a new woman. His expertise and professionalism is unparalleled and I will continue to retain him as my doctor for follow-up appointments. more »

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 told that an ablation would be the best option for controlling my pain and the clotting I experienced with my heavy periods. Because my doctor did not specialize in endometriosis and was not skilled enough to properly treat it, I endured a 5 hour surgery and a 4 week recovery just to remove my right ovary due to a cyst. A post sonogram, 6 weeks after my surgery, showed my ovary was still there, including the cyst. The explanation I received from my OBGYN was that there was too much scar tissue to take the entire ovary, that the scar tissue adhered everywhere- my rectum, kidneys, colon, intestines, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. He actually said it was a good thing he did not try to perform a hysterectomy otherwise he could have done permanent damage to my other organs. He also advised that unless it was absolutely necessary I should not have any further surgeries in the future.
Dr. Seckin did what my doctor could not. He performed a radical hysterectomy and using his cold scissor technique removed all the endometriosis. It is now 4 weeks later and I feel great. My recovery took about 1 week. I no longer have any pain, my periods are gone and I owe it all to Dr. Seckin. If you are suffering or your teenage daughter is suffering with heavy periods, pain, clotting or even infertility, regardless of your age, I would highly recommend consulting with Dr. Seckin and reading his book. He is wonderful, his staff is wonderful and it may change your life.

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 out why I had a blocked ureter and a ureteral reimplantation surgery was scheduled and completed.

Just when I thought I found the answers, I started getting the symptoms again. About 3 months post op, I got my first post surgery period and I thought I was going to die. It only got worse. Each month increased my level of chronic pain, bladder urgency, swelling in my joints (pretty much whole body), thigh and hip pain, increased frequency of heartburn, increased frequency of migraines, extreme fatigue yet chronic insomnia, anxiety, weight gain and really the list goes on.

I’ve seen 25+ doctors in the last 6 years and tested for over 30 diseases to find a solution to my problem. After I had to leave my job, I became a full time patient with each month getting worse. My periods put me out of commission for at least a week each month. After my period, I felt okay until I started to ovulate and my hormones changed, everything progressed downhill until after the next period. I’d always speculated and believed this whole thing was from my endometriosis doctor. But, every single doctor told me it couldn’t be. I thought I was losing my mind.

Then I read Dr. Seckin’s book. There is another patient in his book who had very similar kidney problems. I knew I had to make an appointment.

It took about 2 months to get an appointment. Going into the appointment, I was incredibly nervous. Thankfully my husband was with me but he really doesn’t know the stress caused by each failed doctors appointment. He wasn’t with me while I sat in the parking lot and cried after each appointment feeling like a complete failure.

Prior to my appointment, I had a pelvic MRI. He is the first doctor to ever have me do this. Over the years, I endured countless tests, procedures and bloodwork, but this was the first MRI. He was able to have my results by the time of my appointment. Since we live out of state, we wanted to make sure we could get everything done in a short amount of time.

During my appointment, he called us into his office and spoke with us for a while about my medical history and my medical records. Then he did an exam and reviewed the MRI results. That’s when he paused and my heart stopped.

He reported that most of my issues are stemming from the endometriosis and endometriomas but I also had adneomyosis. I’d never heard of that before and no one ever mentioned it. The only cure for adenomyosis was a hysterectomy and he could excise the endometriosis.

I also had to have a urology surgeon and a gastrointestinal surgeon in my procedure because of my extensive issues. We had to coordinate with all the doctors but it worked out great.

Kim and Dr. Seckin’s team is fantastic. I can’t say nice enough things about them!

My surgery was on March 31, 2017. From the first moment I woke up, I felt a huge relief in my abdomen. I can’t even really explain it to you. It’s like this infectious thing was finally removed. Despite the pain from the surgery, I immediately felt better. That’s how painful and chronic my pain has been for the past 5 years. I spent 1 night in the hospital. Dr. Seckin removed my uterus only and excised the endometriosis.

I am now 8 weeks out and I can’t even tell you how amazing I feel. The migraines haven’t subsided completely but the frequency decreased. 90% of my symptoms are gone. My belly finally deflated and my energy is going back up. I walked every day after my surgery. Even the day after. I can’t emphasize that enough. I truly believe the walking, despite being awful some days, helped tremendously with the pace of my recovery.

Dr. Seckin saved my life.

I was first diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2012 after suffering from a miscarriage and an inability to get pregnant again. I was having constant urinary problems which I always though were UTI’s but everytime I went to my old doctor, he said it wasn’t. After a few months of going back to him for the same reason, he suggested I have a Laparoscopy to see if I might have Endometriosis. I really didn’t know much about it so I agreed if it would help me with the chronic bladder problems.

It was determined I had “stage 2” endometriosis and was told the lesions were taken care of and I should be fine moving forward. I never heard anything else about it.

About 6-9 months after my first surgery, I started having all sorts of health problems. I was diagnosed with celiac disease and Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism and put on all sorts of vitamins prescribed by an integrative doctor. My symptoms never improved and I kept going to different doctors to find an answer.

Could he help me or was this just another wasted visit?

Relief? At this point, I’ve been so skeptical in the past but this time my gut felt like it was right.

We scheduled my surgery for 8 weeks later so I could save money for the surgery. Dr. Seckin is Out of Network for our insurance but his office worked with us to make sure my insurance paid for some and then discussed the cost. My husband and I decided it was worth every penny.

I also had to have a urology surgeon and a gastrointestinal surgeon in my procedure because of my extensive issues. We had to coordinate with all the doctors but it worked out great.

Kim and Dr. Seckin’s team is fantastic. I can’t say nice enough things about them!

I started selling stuff out of our house and my closet to save money for the procedure. If you need ideas or help getting money for your surgery, let me know and I can give you some ideas.

Dr. Seckin removed my uterus only and excised the endometriosis.

We stayed at the JW Marriott which is close to everything. I am fortunate that we cashed out all of our Marriott rewards points to stay for 10 nights. A few nights before to get everything ready and 5 nights after.

I am now 8 weeks out and I can’t even tell you how amazing I feel. The migraines haven’t subsided completely but the frequency decreased. 90% of my symptoms are gone. My belly finally deflated and my energy is going back up. I walked every day after my surgery. Even the day after. I can’t emphasize that enough. I truly believe the walking, despite being awful some days, helped tremendously with the pace of my recovery.

Dr. Seckin saved my life. My quality of life before him was decreasing and this disease was stealing my life from me. If he believes he can help you, he probably can. My follow up appointment is in 2 weeks and I am looking forward to sharing my success story.

Thank you Dr. Seckin. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.

Rebecca B.

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 »

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 »
