Profile

A pioneer endometriosis specialist and an internationally
renowned advanced laparoscopic surgeon, Dr. Seckin is a
Clinical Associate Professor at Zucker School of Medicine at
Hofstra Northwell.
With over thirty years of experience exclusively performing excisional
surgery on complex cases of endometriosis, he has established a
multi-specialist team approach to treat women suffering from debilitating
pelvic pain that involves the bowels, urinary tract, ureters, and extrapelvic
locations such as the diaphragm and thorax. Dr. Seckin is in private
practice in the Upper East Side, NYC, and works out of Lenox Hill Hospital.
His passion for women’s health has manifested into philanthropic activism
with the founding of the Endometriosis Foundation of America in 2009.
Major national awareness efforts advocating for early diagnosis and
timely intervention have initiated major change in the way the disease is
perceived and treated across America. The EndoFound has funded over
$1 million in research, and supported advocacy efforts both in New York
State and on Capitol Hill, including its recent flagship Menstrual Health &
Endometriosis Legislation signed and mandated by Governor Cuomo in
late 2019.
Dr. Seckin has written numerous book chapters, and has co-authored
many scientific papers on endometriosis. His co-authored article,
“Cancer-Associated Mutations in Endometriosis without Cancer,”
was featured in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2017, and
is one of the most referenced papers on this subject.
Dr. Seckin published his first book, The Doctor Will See You Now:
Recognizing and Treating Endometriosis, in 2016. It is rated as the No. 1
most-read book on endometriosis on Goodreads.com. Just released in
March 2020, his second book, Endometriosis: A Guide for Girls, is written
to educate and support adolescents.
