Ken Sekine, MD

Dr. Sekine is a board certified Ob-Gyn, who has been in private practice since 1981. He has transitioned over the years, with his patients, from pre pregnancy care, through their child bearing years, and into the life changing, menopausal years. Always believing that the changes and symptoms associated with menopause (ovarian failure) were pathologic, and not physiologic, in other words, not what one must live with, he has prepared for these times.

Dr. Sekine embraced the Sottopelle® approach to treating women and men, after completing a course with Dr. Gino Tutera, the world renown founder of the organization. Dr. Sekine received his Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Queens College of the City University of New York. He attended medical school at the Universidad Autonoma of Guadalajara, Mexico, and received his OB-GYN training at the University of Florida Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Jacksonville. He has been board certified in the specialty since 1984, and recertifies annually. Dr. Sekine has extensive experience in gynecologic surgery, including Robotic Surgery, and urogynecological surgery for female urinary conditions, and pelvic floor prolapse.

After 33 years of delivering babies, Dr. Sekine will focus his skills on gynecology only, starting in March, 2014. Dr. Sekine founded North Florida Hormone Therapy, speicalizing in female pre-menopause, menopause, and male andropause. Dr. Sekine is a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists, and the Florida Medical Association. Dr. Sekine is an Associate Clinical Instructor for the Department of Ob-Gyn, University of Florida, Jacksonville.

Dear Prospective Patient,
I am very excited about being able to give back the quality of life that has been enjoyed for many years. My committment as a physician has been to help people. I have enjoyed bringing new life into the world, as well as resolving chronic pelvic pain in patients who come to me. My new found ability, in utilizing SottoPelle therapy, has opened new doors in my offering patients treatment that really works, to better their quality of life. A common question I have always been asked by patients over the years is, would I treat my wife with my recommended therapy. Well, my wife was my first SottoPelle treated patient, almost 4 years ago, and continues to receive her pellets on a regular basis The response from patients, as to how their lives have changed after initiating the pellet therapy, is overwhelmingly remarkable. As Dr. Tutera told when we first met, that the thank you’s I will receive from the pellet patients, will equal those I received after delivering babies. It couldn’t be any more true If you have encountered no one listening to your pleas to feel better, let me listen to you, and help you. Please call for a consultation, and head down the path to getting your life back.
Sincerely, Kenneth M. Sekine, MD

Practice Approach

We are a group practice of four MD’s, two males, and two females. The practice is a very busy ob-gyn specialty practice. As part of this group, North Florida Hormone Therapy was created to address specifics of hormone deficiencies.

As my physician, Dr. Sekine introduced the hormone pellet therapy to me back in July 2011. I had complained to him of having no energy, no umph, and no desire to do anything but come home from work and be a couch potato no quality of life for me. I started hormone pellet therapy and within two-weeks my whole life changed. I began having more energy, I joined a Zumba class and ended up losing 40 pounds, which I have kept it off. I also didn’t realize that my sleeping and my libido had been effected until I started the hormone pellet therapy. At 56-years-old, getting a good nights sleep and the desire/pleasure of sex again, I just can’t tell you how the pellets have have changed my life. I cant thank Dr. Sekine enough for recommending pellet hormone therapy! – Marcia

How do you thank the doctor who changed your life? I think it’s by sharing my experience with others, so he can help them feel as great as I do!! From the ages of 52-58 I suffered through many of the body changes and discomforts that menopause brings. I was taking prescription HRT and still suffering with low libido and vaginal dryness (which is very uncomfortable). I shared my tales of woe with Dr. Sekine as Im sure many other women did, but he truly LISTENED to me and decided to do something about it. His something was studying and learning about a better way to treat menopausal symptoms with SottoPelle hormone replacement pellet therapy. Boy does it work, and it keeps on working. I’ll be 62 in a few days and my libido is as good as it was at 32. I have more energy than people half my age, I feel amazing and super comfortable in my own skin. All I can say is thank you for listening and learning about SottoPelle therapy Dr. Sekine, and thank you for helping make my senior years some of the best years of my life!! Ladies, stop suffering and give Dr. Sekine a call, those pellets truly changed the quality of my life, and it can do the same thing for you! Thank you so much Dr. Sekine! – Judi

I have been a patient of Dr. Sekine’s since 1987. Dr. Sekine truly cares about his patients and listens to their concerns. When Dr. Sekine told me about pellet therapy, I knew it was for me. Pellet therapy has helped me tremendously no more hot flashes, mental fatigue or mood swings. My hair loss has slowed, and my energy level has increased greatly! Pellet therapy has been a blessing to me. I recommend it highly. I am fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Sekine. Dr. Sekine is an exceptional doctor and goes out of his way to ensure his patients are health needs are met. I am so thankful that Dr. Sekine offers pellet therapy, it has made a huge difference in my life. -Denise

I am a 53-year-old woman who had a hysterectomy age 51. My first revelation that I needed more than the hormone patch is when it wasn’t working!!! My thought process was not as clear, I was getting more forgetful, and the highlight of my day was standing in the refrigerator section of Costco in a tank top! Nighttime wasn’t fun either. Even with the home air conditioning at 65 degrees, the cold air could not stop the warm rush that would go through my body and keep me up all night. How about the lack of sex because it hurt. I decided to seek additional guidance from the Doc who delivered my two boys, Dr. Kenneth Sekine. He recommended the Pellets, and desperate I said, “let’s try it”. It took two to three weeks to make a significant impact. My first round of pellets lasted two months. Dr Sekine then adjusted the dosage. My 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounds lasted three months. The most recent round of pellets have lasted five months, and they are not wearing off just yet. Since I have been on pellet therapy I have felt fantastic. No hot flashes, increased energy, and sex no longer hurts. The only downside I have noticed is that my hair grows faster, which isn’t a bad trade-off to feel great all the time. I highly recommend pellets! – Jackie
