GYN SURGERY IN THE NEWS
Power Morcellation: An Unnecessary Risk
Power morcellation is a technique used by many surgeons to cut up large fibroids or uteri in order to perform minimally invasive surgeries. However, the risks associated with it have led the FDA to issue a black-box warning. If cancer cells exist in the uterus, it is possible for the morcellator to spread those malignant cells throughout the pelvic cavity.
CIGC Never uses power morcellation. Our procedures are designed to eliminate the need for power morcellators, and our specialists are highly skilled in laparoscopic techniques, so your can be assured that your incisions will be tiny, and your surgery will be safe.Learn More

Inflammation leads to pain (sometimes debilitating), heavy bleeding, and enlargement of the uterus.Learn More

The existing system for the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of endometriosis relies too heavily on medical professionals who do not have advanced training in identifying and comprehensive surgical removal of the disease. As a result, women with endometriosis are left undiagnosed on average of 9 years, allowing the disease to worsen.Learn More
