KSN-TV – Faced with ‘barbaric’ surgery, Kansas woman chooses to travel to CIGC
Former CIGC patient Cindy began to experience abdominal pain starting at the age of 35. For years doctors provided a variety of misdiagnoses, from IBS to gallstones, and at one point, even Lyme Disease.
What Cindy had were fibroids. Fibroids are non-cancerous growths of the uterus and affect up to 80% of women by the age of 50. A local OBGYN in Kansas explained that the only course of action was an open hysterectomy, involving an incision from her breast bone down to her pelvic bone.
For Cindy, as a busy CFO and a mother of three, she knew this wasn’t the best option. She continued her search until she found The Center for Innovative GYN Care.
