Brittany (30) from Herndon, Virginia had been trying to conceive for four years before coming to CIGC for minimally invasive cyst removal. During surgery, it was discovered she had also been suffering from endometriosis and bowel adhesions. Endometriosis is known to cause infertility as endometrial tissue can affect the ovaries and quality of eggs, and can create toxicity in the lining. After GYN surgery, Brittany got pregnant within a month.
“My daughter is 3 years old now. She is happy, healthy and perfect. It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about the carefulness of the surgery, and being able to keep my ovary and returning to normal within days. I didn’t think that I would end up keeping my ovary and didn’t know if I could ever get pregnant on my own. When that test came back positive my world changed all for the better.” Brittany said.
Many of our patients travel from out-of-town and from out-of-country for advanced minimally invasive GYN surgery at CIGC. Women who don’t have minimally invasive treatment options for their GYN condition closer to home can now benefit from CIGC’s groundbreaking techniques through our travel program. Innovative procedures like DualPortGYN and LAAM were developed by Paul MacKoul and Natalya Danilyants to improve surgical outcomes for patients and to help them recover faster.
GYN surgery for complex conditions like large fibroids and extensive endometriosis is now possible with only 2 small incisions and recovery in less than 2 weeks. Many times women are recommended open or robotic surgery and this is not longer necessary with advanced laparoscopic techniques.
We want to make traveling for GYN surgery from long distances as seamless as possible. Read about CIGC’s travel program and contact us online or at 888-SURGERY to book an appointment. CIGC has offices in Rockville, MD, Annapolis, MD and Reston VA.
Many CIGC patients struggling to conceive have found that GYN surgery for conditions like fibroids or endometriosis can often clear the path to motherhood. Fibroids affect up to 80% of women and they can interfere with a woman’s ability to conceive and carry to term. Endometriosis affects more than 5 million women in the U.S. and it is the leading cause of female infertility. Fertility investments can be expensive and it is important to diagnose and treat GYN conditions early in order to prevent future damage.
