Heather W., Arlington, VA was diagnosed with four small to medium-sized fibroids in 2011, the largest being about golf ball sized. Even then, she was considering a hysterectomy, but choosing the right procedure was important.
“My doctor suggested doing a bikini cut hysterectomy and stated that was the only method that would work since I have fibroids. Other treatment methods were suggested, such as fibroid removal, injecting pellets into them to stop the bloodflow, and at the time the experimental method of blasting them with MRI waves (which wasn’t covered by my insurance and was being tested at University of Virginia. I was interested in the hysterectomy since it is a permanent solution to the fibroids. I never wanted to have children, however I did not want to get a bikini cut hysterectomy. So I went the least invasive route and treated my fibroids with my birth control pills.”
That was until she found CIGC and Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD.
“Dr. MacKoul is amazing. I don’t think amazing even covers it. He did a fantastic job with my surgery. He did an excellent job explaining the procedure and addressing any concerns. He also explained the differences between the other methods available and the methods CIGC uses. He is a fantastic surgeon. I am so thankful that I found him and was able to get my surgery done by him and CIGC.”
