Treat Your Condition Before Investing in IVF

If you’re having difficulty getting pregnant, you may have an undiagnosed complex GYN condition such as fibroids or endometriosis, that is contributing to your infertility. Consulting a minimally invasive GYN specialist before you begin IVF treatments can help improve success rates of conceiving and carrying to term. CIGC patients were able to conceive naturally after advanced, minimally invasive GYN surgery for complex conditions.

What Makes Us Different and What It Means for You

  • Superior outcomes: Our state-of-the-art minimally invasive, fertility preserving techniques provide highly superior surgical results.
  • Focused on advanced GYN surgery: Unlike OBGYNs, CIGC surgical specialists do not practice obstetrics, and focus 100% on innovative minimally invasive GYN surgery for complex conditions.
  • Beyond fellowship-training: We have innovated and trademarked advanced GYN techniques such as minimally invasive LAAM® myomectomy for fertility and DualPortGYN®.

What Women Are Saying

Janelle, Excited Mother

During my consultation, we discussed removing my right fallopian tube because it would interfere with the in vitro fertilization. We didn’t want to ruin any of our chances. Surgery was scheduled for September, 2012. Everything went as smoothly as possible. My doctor was amazing with fantastic bedside manner.

Our state-of-the-art DualPortGYN technique can treat a range of complex GYN conditions such as:

Endometriosis

Adenomyosis

Infertility and GYN Conditions

  • Fibroids can cause infertility by preventing implantation or can result in miscarriage.
