Love Your OBGYN? They Might Not Be The Right GYN Surgeon For You
Many women confronting and investigating GYN surgical procedures as a solution for fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic pain, and cancer will instinctively turn to their OBGYN physician to offer sound advice for the safest and least invasive approach to surgery. After all, she brought your children into the world – she is the best GYN surgeon for me, right?
As a patient, you need to know that OBGYN physicians concentrate most of their time and practice on Obstetrics, not minimally invasive surgery. The reality is that board certified, fellowship trained laparoscopic surgical specialists, such as the surgeons at The Center for Innovative GYN Care (CIGC), focus completely on minimally invasive surgery. The surgeons of CIGC have developed innovative techniques DualPortGYN and LAAM. These procedures provide the faster recovery by using tiny incisions placed within the midline. The CIGC techniques treat fibroids and endometriosis and other complex GYN conditions. These procedures offer significantly better recovery with fewer complications at a lower cost than laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
The choice is yours to make.
A survey from the American Congress of OBGYNs shows that the practice focus of the average OBGYN is mainly Obstetrics and office visits, with only 25% of their time spent on surgery.
Patients are often told that their only options are robotic and open procedures performed by their OBGYN. Unfortunately, these surgeries have more incisions with more scars, a longer recovery with greater pain, increased complications, and take far longer at a greater cost than DualPortGYN and LAAM surgeries.
