The Hazy Days of Summer: Recover Fast From GYN Surgery

faster recovery from GYN surgery

Regaining a sense of balance in your life after GYN surgery can be life changing for many women. Invest some time during the end of summer into your health.


As the hottest part of summer peaks, it’s important to look ahead to the quieter times in August, the most popular time for taking a vacation when you can relax and take some time for yourself. Many women struggle with choosing when to have GYN surgery, because some types of procedures like open or robotic can leave you out of commission for weeks. This affects work, school, family activities. At The Center for Innovative GYN Care, we know the importance of getting you back to YOU faster.

Treating fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic adhesions, or undiagnosed abnormal bleeding or pelvic pain doesn’t have to mean weeks off of work or rescheduling a vacation. At CIGC, our patients return to their lives in days.


The surgical specialists at CIGC developed two techniques that require only 2 small incisions: DualPortGYN and LAAM. These techniques use advanced surgical expertise to treat even the most complex conditions. Hysterectomy, myomectomy, ovarian cystectomy, and resection of endometriosis (also known as excision) or resection of pelvic adhesions are all performed in an outpatient setting.

DualPortGYN is a technique that can be applied to all GYN conditions. Using 2 tiny 5MM incisions, most patients recover from surgical procedures in days rather than weeks. LAAM is a technique that is used for women with fibroids of any size or location, who wish to retain their uterus for fertility.

Unlike open or robotic GYN procedures which are geared towards a doctor’s level of comfort, each phase of a CIGC surgery takes the patient into consideration. Shorter time in surgery means less time under anesthesia. Fewer incisions means less pain. Faster recovery from GYN surgery means you don’t have to miss out on the most important times of your life.


Patients often suffer for years before finding a minimally invasive GYN surgical specialist because of time off of work, pain during recovery, or especially for endometriosis patients, failed procedures that didn’t resolve the pain. CIGC procedures make it possible for women to get the best possible procedure without the fear of a long recovery. Our specialists have performed over 20,000 minimally invasive GYN procedures. That kind of experience matters.

Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD are advance trained laparoscopic surgeons who have years of experience in retroperitoneal dissection and uterine artery ligation/occlusion, and as a result, these techniques made DualPortGYN and LAAM possible.


GYN surgical specialists can often see women sooner because they are focused entirely on surgery. Each patient gets detailed, in depth attention from Dr. Natalya Danilyants and Dr. Paul J. MacKoul. This personalized 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.
