What Women Are Saying
Verified Patient Reviews

Within days I was walking around with little to no pain. By the end of the second week, I was doing light exercises like walking a mile through my neighborhood. I'm a runner and by the end of the third week, I was able to get in a few miles. Today, I feel amazing – like myself in college. Thank you, thank you.

I had the LAAM procedure. I am seven days post-surgery and I can honestly say I am stunned at how good I feel today! I could have gone back to work three days ago if it wasn't for the nature of my work. I feel excellent!! Please if you are on the fence about this procedure, just do it! You will not have any regrets!

If you want kind, patient, knowledgeable, and thorough doctors to care for and treat you - this is the place to be! Both my mother and I have been treated at this group and will refer them to any and everyone!

I flew to Maryland from Wyoming, had my partial hysterectomy around noon, woke up with no abdominal pain, and was able to leave shortly after. The next day I was able to walk (3.5 miles) with still no pain. I flew back home two days after surgery and was able to go back to work in six days, and honestly, I probably could have gone back at four days.

I had a large 19 cm 'mass' that needed to be removed off of my left ovary. It ended up being stage four endometriosis. I was up and walking around for an entire day three days after my surgery. My incisions are healing beautifully and are barely noticeable. I traveled from Michigan to Maryland for this surgery and I feel like myself again. HIGHLY recommended The Center for Innovative GYN Care.

Best care I've ever received. From scheduling my appointment to them checking in the day after surgery, I was never just another patient. Great care, compassionate staff, and excellent experience. I highly recommend them!
