Have You Been Delaying Your GYN Care?

Women may delay care for their gynecological conditions for any number of reasons, including motherhood, financial concern, or lack of time. At CIGC, we understand that as a woman, you lead a busy, complex life and may not think that you have the resources to put your health first – but you do, and we are here to help.

If you’ve been delaying your care because of any of the following situations, we can help you find a solution:

COVID-19 Pandemic
Being unable or feeling unsafe to travel has been a major concern for women everywhere. Luckily, the worst of the pandemic is behind us, and travel is an option again. Even in the midst of the pandemic, our facilities prioritized patient health and safety, and now we are more prepared than ever to help more women get the care they deserve from anywhere they travel from.

Financial Constraints

Finances should never get in the way of the safe, effective and high-quality care that a patient deserves. At CIGC, we know that financial concerns should not mean that a woman has to settle for loss of fertility, large scars and lengthy recovery periods. That is why we provide financial counseling to help patients understand their out-of-pocket responsibilities and financial options.

Our patient advocacy team understands the ins and outs of health insurance plans and can help you use your benefits to their fullest potential. Our patient advocates:

  • Contact your health insurance provider to confirm your plan has participating benefits
  • Calculate your out-of-pocket costs
  • File any necessary paperwork on your behalf
  • Take the guesswork out of the process so you can focus on what’s important: finding relief and getting back to your life
Lack of Childcare during Recovery

Working mothers and stay-at-home moms alike know the difficulty associated with taking time to yourself. Whether you cannot afford a lengthy recovery due to parenthood, career, or personal desires, CIGC provides the minimally invasive procedures to help you recover faster.

Our patients go home the same day of surgery and many are up walking around the next day, fully recovered within 1-2 weeks, not 8 weeks like other surgical techniques.

GYN Conditions Are Not Rare

GYN conditions are incredibly common, yet they are rarely talked about. As a result, many women are not properly diagnosed, don’t fully understand their condition, or fear the idea of treatment. At CIGC, we meet you where you are on your journey toward wellness.

We work to empower you with information on your condition so you can make an informed decision on how to move forward. We provide in-depth consultations to help us get a clear picture of where your health is right now and what your goals are for the future so we can provide you with the treatments in line with your plans.

LAAM: A Better Myomectomy

The Laparoscopically Assisted Abdominal Myomectomy (LAAM®) is our fertility-preserving, advanced laparoscopic myomectomy procedure that removes both small and large fibroids for women of childbearing age.

This groundbreaking procedure allows for the removal of as many fibroids as an open procedure — including small fibroids often left behind in other procedures — without any large incisions, hospital stays or long recoveries.

“Tons of gratitude to Dr. Danilyants, the surgical team and staff for making this extreme fibroid surgery possible for me and putting my body on the right path for fertility. God Bless you all and thank you so very much.”
– Aziza, traveled from New York
