Who we are
The Seckin Endometriosis Center (SEC) is a private medical practice dedicated to providing patients with life-altering endometriosis treatment. We exclusively practice minimally invasive, deep excision laparoscopic surgery to deliver targeted treatment and lasting relief.
We are internationally recognized for our expertise in complex cases of endometriosis, particularly deep infiltrating endometriosis of the pelvis, which can cause rectal disease, sciatic and pudendal neuropathy, and sigmoid, ureter, and bowel obstruction.
Dr. Seckin is a world-renowned excision surgeon with over 35 years of experience in the field and over 30 years of exclusive experience in laparoscopy. Dr. Seckin’s immediate surgical team includes Dr. Karli Goldstein, a fellow of endometriosis surgery who has trained extensively with Dr. Seckin.
To date, we have performed over 4,000 endometriosis surgeries, and we remain committed to improving the lives of countless women across the globe. The Seckin Endometriosis Center (SEC) is a tertiary referral center that provides patients with life-altering minimally invasive surgery for all of their endometriosis needs. Patients travel from all around the globe to receive our world-renowned laparoscopic deep-excision surgery.
What makes us different?
There are several standards of care we uphold in all of our endometriosis surgeries in order to provide patients with the best quality treatment.
We operate exclusively out of Lenox Hill Hospital where we have a long-established relationship with a team of dedicated personnel.
Our expertise in complex cases of endometriosis is renowned, particularly deep infiltrating endometriosis of the pelvis, which is known to cause rectal disease, sciatic and pudendal neuropathy, and sigmoid, ureter, and bowel obstruction.
We use a sophisticated technique based on precision and micro-surgery, which allows for organ preservation as well as pain and adhesion prevention.
Our commitment is exclusively to the deep excision of endometriosis using advanced laparoscopic techniques. We have serious reservations concerning robotic surgery, particularly for cases of endometriosis, due to its present lack of haptic feedback and proprioception, and its limited capability in handling advanced cases involving the retroperitoneum.
We use our unique patented Aqua Blue Excision technique (ABC), which allows for the increased visualization of lesions, resulting in better identification and excision of endometriosis.
