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

Finally, her GYN recommended she see a specialist at CIGC, where Nissa met Rupen Baxi, MD.Learn More
Despite advancements in gynecological surgical techniques, a large number of women are still subjected to open procedures for hysterectomy or myomectomy.
