CIGC TREATS COMPLEX GYN CONDITIONS THAT AFFECT FERTILITY
Many couples struggle with infertility and seek help to become pregnant. At CIGC, we treat women with complex GYN conditions like fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, uterine polyps, uterine septum, and inflammation of the fallopian tubes (hydrosalpinx) that can affect fertility. If these conditions are identified and treated early there is a greater chance of conceiving and carrying a child to term. If surgery is necessary, minimally invasive GYN techniques make it possible for many women to begin starting their family sooner than with open, more invasive procedures.
Women who have had trouble conceiving naturally, or with IUI or IVF treatments should consider getting a fertility evaluation. The advanced trained minimally invasive GYN surgeons Dr. Paul MacKoul MD, and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD at The Center for Innovative GYN Care have developed techniques to treat many of the causes of infertility, with faster recovery times.

The CIGC state-of-the-art specialists are available at three locations in the DC metro area. Virginia patients can visit the Reston, VA location, and Saturday appointments are available. Maryland offices are located in Rockville, MD and Annapolis, MD.
CIGC is dedicated to providing information and materials for women to help navigate the complicated healthcare system. The CIGC founders, minimally invasive GYN surgical specialists Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD, developed their advanced GYN surgical techniques using only two small incisions with patients’ well-being in mind. Dr. Rupen Baxi, MD is a CIGC-trained minimally invasive GYN specialist with extensive fellowship training and a respected speaker and researcher.
Their personalized approach to care helps patients understand their condition and the recommended treatment so that they can have confidence from the very start. Our surgeons have performed over 20,000 GYN procedures and are constantly finding better ways to improve outcomes for patients.
