Out of State and International New Patient Instructions
For out-of-state and international patients seeking surgery at Seckin Endometriosis Center, we offer an expedited (but never rushed!) treatment plan. Ideally, our doctors will see you for an initial consultation in the office on a separate visit from your pre-op appointment. At the time of their scheduled surgery, out-of-state patients must commit to a one-week stay in New York City. Please note, depending on the type of surgery, patients usually need between five days and one week of post-operative recovery time before they are ready to return home. This week-long visit will usually entail:
- pre-operative appointment
- additional team consultations and imaging tests, if necessary
- post-operative appointment
PLEASE NOTE: We can never guarantee a one-week stay, in total. If your case is complex (e.g. multi-organ involvement), a longer recovery period in NYC may be necessary.
