The CIGC Advantage: Laparoscopic GYN Surgery

The exclusive techniques used to perform laparoscopic GYN surgery at The Center for Innovative GYN Care are state-of-the-art. Complex GYN conditions require specialist care. CIGC surgeons perform procedures that protect the patient to ensure optimal outcomes. By controlling for blood loss and improving visibility, even the most complex conditions can be treated in an outpatient setting with better long-term results than other techniques.

CIGC is committed to providing the best patient results for the treatment of complex GYN conditions. For that reason, it is important for patients to understand why we only perform and only recommend DualPortGYN and LAAM procedures for hysterectomy, myomectomy (fibroid removal), cystectomy, prolapse repair and other complex GYN procedures.

In order to make the best decision, it’s important to have all of the facts.

Two large scale retrospective studies were performed at a local Maryland hospital to compare surgical techniques for hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures.


Advanced laparoscopic surgery to treat all GYN conditions, including fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, pelvic organ prolapse, and adenomyosis. DualPortGYN can be used for hysterectomy, ovarian cyst removal, endometriosis excision and prolapse repair.


HYSTERECTOMY: In the comparison of 2,568 patients who underwent a laparoscopic hysterectomy procedure (the review included patients who had DualPortGYN, Robotic or standard laparoscopic surgery), DualPortGYN (also known as laparoscopic retroperitoneal hysterectomy or LRH) clearly showed the best patient outcomes with the lowest complication rates, and 0% conversion to open surgery.
