Christine_CIGC2Regardless of how early it is caught, the diagnosis “endometrial cancer” is scary. Christine from Altoona PA was diagnosed earlier this year and she knew she needed a hysterectomy. Her regular practice only gave her the option to have an invasive open surgery, with 6 weeks recovery time, which she did not want. Christine had concerns. She felt she was not getting answers to her questions and was not involved in the decision process regarding her GYN procedure.

Christine started to research other options and found out that a minimally invasive procedure was possible at CIGC with DualPortGYN hysterectomy using only two 5mm incisions. The recovery time for this procedure is only 10 days.

Christine had her minimally invasive hysterectomy in November and was relieved to find out post-op that the cancer had not spread anywhere else. Read her full story in Dr. MacKoul’s recent Tumblr blog: CIGC Patient Has Successful Laparoscopic Hysterectomy For Endometrial Cancer
