The Center for Innovative GYN Care DualPortGYN hysterectomy procedure helps women recover faster. The size and placement of the incisions means less pain. One incision placed at the belly button and another at the bikini line avoids going through the muscle. This means patients have a less painful recovery, and recover faster. The average recovery time for a CIGC hysterectomy patient is 7 days.

Dr. Paul MacKoul, M.D. helped Brittany start the family she always wanted by removing endometriosis, pelvic adhesions and a cyst.
“If it wasn’t for Dr. MacKoul, I wouldn’t have this beautiful child,” said Brittany, Herndon, VA. “I had been trying for 4 years to have a baby. We were thinking about alternatives to natural conception. I went to my doctor after years not being able to get pregnant. At that point we decided to wait and see what happened. After waiting, I did get pregnant, but I had a miscarriage.”
Brittany had a dermoid ovarian cyst on her ovary diagnosed when she was a teenager. “When my doctor performed an ultrasound, she saw that my dermoid cyst had doubled or more in size.”
Lindsay (33) from Dallas, TX first found out she had fibroids at her annual well woman visit about a year and a half ago. The only treatment options Lindsay had at home were open myomectomy or robotic surgery. One of her friends recommended she see a different doctor and undergo robotic surgery like she did. After comparing the two and learning how innovative the LAAM technique is, Lindsay was certain it was the right surgery for her.
Lindsay traveled to CIGC for minimally invasive fibroid surgery.
“I had a vacation planned to Mexico. When I met with Dr. MacKoul, I was about a month out. This was important to me as this was a trip I had earned through my company, so I had it planned months prior. Dr. MacKoul said as long as I do this 2 weeks before, I should be good, which I thought was crazy! I went to my OBGYN last week, I think she was shocked to see my quick recovery. I said ‘my surgery was 5 weeks ago and I’ve been working for weeks and I just got back from a vacation in Mexico.’ ”
For nearly a decade, Bela, (Vienna, VA) tried every possible path to having a child with her husband. Fifteen fertility treatments across two states, surgery to remove fibroids and scar tissue, supplements, acupuncture, surrogacy, and her next step if she couldn’t get pregnant with her own eggs, was to try a donor.
Endometriosis removal at The Center for Innovative GYN Care was the last attempt before seeking donor eggs.
“Prior to getting the endometriosis removed, none of my cycles were successful. I had been through six IUI cycles and nine IVF cycles. After going through several IVF failures, I sought help of a reproductive immunologist in New York. He indicated that it is very likely that I have endometriosis based on the results from my immunological testing. He also indicated that endometriosis could affect the egg quality and could diminish the ovarian reserve. I did not have any typical symptoms of endometriosis and the disease was not seen during my first 2 surgeries. I was intrigued and decided to consult Dr. Paul MacKoul.Learn More
