Fertility-preserving Fibroid Removal.

You don’t need to sacrifice your fertility with the laparoscopic myomectomy at The Center for Innovative GYN Care® (CIGC®).

Remove Fibroids, Maintain Fertility

If you’re planning a family, the presence of fibroids can lead to trouble conceiving, miscarriages, and serious complications during your pregnancy. With the advanced laparoscopic surgeons at CIGC, you may be able to retain your fertility and completely remove your fibroids with the LAAM® myomectomy.

What Makes Us Different and What It Means for You

  • Superior outcomes: Our state-of-the-art LAAM procedure uses only one 5 mm and one 3 cm incision, and results in a quicker recovery time of only 10-14 days.
  • 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 such as fibroids.
  • Beyond fellowship-training: We have innovated and trademarked advanced GYN techniques such as minimally invasive LAAM myomectomy for fertility, providing highly superior surgical results.

What Women Are Saying

Raynelle, Proud Mother

Within a three-to-four-minute conversation, I had a better understanding of how my body worked than I had after eight year’s worth of conversations with my regular OBGYN. It was clear that she was top notch, but she was so humble when we talked. I was in amazing hands.

LAAM Myomectomy for Fertility

LAAM myomectomy technique designed to preserve fertility for women who are able to have children. If pregnancy is no longer an option and fibroids are recurring, CIGC surgical specialists may recommend definitive treatment with the advanced DualPortGYN® hysterectomy.

Fibroids Symptoms

Our state-of-the-art techniques provide faster relief from fibroid symptoms such as:

Abnormal bleeding
Pelvic pain
Infertility

Not All Myomectomies are the Same

Our innovative LAAM technique removes more fibroids than a laparoscopic or robotic procedure – while retaining fertility. Similar to an open myomectomy, LAAM can remove the kinds of fibroids that most affect fertility, but with significantly less pain and a faster recovery time.
