Louise van der Does, Ph.D. to review the groundbreaking clinical outcomes of the Center’s proprietary techniques for minimally invasive uterine sparing fibroid surgery (myomectomy).

WASHINGTON D.C, (January 7, 2019) — Louise van der Does, Ph.D., Director of Research & Public Policy, for The Center for Innovative GYN Care® (CIGC®) will be presenting a review of the Center’s Laparoscopic-Assisted Abdominal Myomectomy with Bilateral Uterine Artery Occlusion/Ligation (LAAM BUAO®) at the 7th International Congress of Gynaecology and Obstetrics 2019 (ICGO-19), which will be held from September 27-29, 2019 in Chengdu, China.

“The invitation to the 7th Annual International Congress of Gynaecology and Obstetrics in Chengdu, China recognizes Dr. Van der Does’ dedication to ensuring that powerful data, as in this study, is recognized not just nationally, but internationally,” said Paul MacKoul MD. “LAAM-BUAO is changing the way myomectomy can be performed.  Hopefully through meetings such as ICGO-19, these techniques will become adopted by more GYN surgeons, allowing patients better outcomes and faster recoveries than laparoscopic, robotic, or open procedures.”

LAAM-BUAO is a minimally invasive laparoscopic fibroid removal surgical technique developed by the founders of CIGC Dr. Paul MacKoul and Dr. Natalya Danilyants. By using advanced laparoscopic techniques, the LAAM-BUAO procedure decreases blood loss and complication rates while removing fibroids of any size, number, or location to the uterus. LAAM-BUAO allows for the smallest incisions, fastest recovery, and is performed as an outpatient procedure.

The ICGO-2019 conference is an international meeting for professionals that work on gynecological, obstetrical, women’s reproductive health, clinical care, and medical devices. ICGO-2019 features speakers who will present cutting-edge research on a wide range of topics. Participants include gynecologists, obstetrists, endocrinologists, physicians, researchers, nurses and other health care professionals.
