Recovery from a gynecological procedure depends on the skill of the surgeon, the type of surgery, and the size and number of the incisions. As minimally invasive techniques become more advanced, incisions can be incredibly small. If placed strategically, that means that the incisions will not be visible once they heal.

DualPortGYN® was developed by the CIGC specialists Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD and Dr. Natalya Danilyants, MD. DualPortGYN minimally invasive hysterectomy procedures are performed in an outpatient setting, so women can return home the same day. Incisions are tiny, and placed in cosmetically appealing locations. One 5 mm incision is placed at the belly button, and another 5 mm incision is placed at the bikini line, so they are practically invisible after they heal. These incisions go through the midline, not through muscle, so recovery is faster. The incisions from a DualPortGYN procedure are so small, that in many cases, CIGC patients are back to work in less than a week, and scars are practically invisible within 1 to 2 months.

A DualPortGYN hysterectomy has a fast recovery, with most patients are back to their lives in 7 days. Hear directly from CIGC patients.


Dorran T - a CIGC Patient“I had a complete laparoscopic hysterectomy,” said Dorran T. (Leesburg, VA).

“After surgery with Dr. Danilyants I could tell this time was different. I don’t like taking medicine. I had painkillers when I left, I got home from the surgery, I had one when I got home, and that was it. I had surgery on a Thursday, rested on Friday, and on Saturday I was up and doing normal stuff. Now I feel like I could run a mile.

Kia W - a CIGC Patient“Everything went fine,” said Kia W. (Baltimore, MD).

“I was only down for the first couple of days after surgery and that was due to the anesthesia. I went home the same day and there was never any pain from the actual surgery at all. Even with the incisions, there are no scars. I feel like a totally different woman. I don’t have to hold back. I can plan my life.”


Tiffany D - A CIGC Patient“I’m excited about the surgery,” Tiffany D. (Woodbridge, VA).

“I didn’t expect to be up and around the first week. It was probably four days after the surgery where I knew I felt different already. A lot of women go through this and they don’t know where to go. I want to help them.”


Tonya A - A CIGC Patient“I travel a lot more now, and my destinations have changed,” Tonya A. (Washington, DC).

“I can go to more beaches which I love, and not worry about wearing a bathing suit or when I can go swimming. Now, my locations are the Caribbean and islands, warmer climates.”
