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

Excerpt from Family Circle
“It can take up to 11 years from the onset of symptoms to get diagnosed with this painful condition in which the type of tissue that grows inside of your uterus begins to grow outside of it. While there’s no cure for endometriosis—a disease that strikes one in ten women—recognizing the symptoms means you can save yourself a world of hurt.Learn More
I was up by 8AM, I looked at my girlfriend and said ‘Let’s go look at some monuments.’ and she said ‘Are you kidding?’ I replied ‘No, I’m not. You’ve never been to D.C.’ We got up and went and checked out monuments until I was tired which was around 7:30 that evening. We came back, I fell asleep and left for home the next day.”
“I’ve heard stories of hysterectomies being horrible. I will say, from having proximal hamstring injury surgery, the DualPortGYN hysterectomy was a cakewalk.Learn More
