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.
The location of the fibroid, and not its size, is the key factor when it comes to fertility. Fibroids growing within the uterine lining, or developing within the muscle, can distort the uterine cavity. The result is often difficulty conceiving and a higher risk of miscarriage.
