Back in 2004 Sherri C, now living in New York, NY, dealt with symptoms from a large fibroid. She had moved from FL to MD and her OB/GYN at the time referred her to see Dr. Paul MacKoul for minimally invasive fibroid surgery. Though minimally invasive surgery had been around for a while, this procedure was still a fairly new advancement as it would only leave a small scar.
Fibroids often recur after a myomectomy. Years later, as Sherri moved to New York, new fibroids started to grow. Every doctor in New York recommended a hysterectomy, although Sherri wanted to preserve fertility. Traveling for fibroid surgery was not out of the question for her. As New York came up short with minimally invasive options, she expanded her research and returned to CIGC.
“I decided to try to get in touch with Dr. MacKoul. I had researched the procedure on the website and knew that it was minimally invasive fibroid removal but, I was surprised at how fast everything was. I wanted first available. From the time I first talked to Dr. MacKoul to talking to the surgical coordinator, my surgery was scheduled for 2 weeks later.”
