The Center for Innovative GYN Care advanced surgical specialists use only minimally invasive techniques for fibroid removal. A laparoscopic approach in GYN surgery, with smaller and fewer incisions, helps patients recover faster and become mobile sooner.

When you are limited in mobility for an extended period of time, more than two weeks, muscles begin to decondition, or detrain. Walking promotes the flow of oxygen throughout the body, and maintains normal breathing function. Gastrointestinal and urinary tract function are improved, and with improved blood flow, wounds heal faster. Every patient’s recovery is different and should be monitored by a physician, but gradual and measured increase in movement and activity can help prevent prolonged recovery times.


At CIGC, Dr. Paul MacKoul, Dr. Natalya Danilyants and Dr. Rupen Baxi use the advanced LAAM technique for minimally invasive myomectomy and the DualPortGYN technique for minimally invasive hysterectomy. Both procedures use 2 small, cosmetically placed incisions, and women recover in less than 2 weeks.

Learn about the importance of moving soon after fibroid surgery, and how advanced GYN techniques help patients avoid muscle detraining. Read this recent article from The Center for Innovative GYN Care and WTOPGet Moving: Being Active Soon After Fibroid Removal Surgery Aids In Recovery.
