The Center for Innovative GYN Care® (CIGC®) is a world-renowned facility specializing in advanced laparoscopic techniques to treat complex GYN conditions. Women travel from around the world for advanced minimally invasive GYN surgery performed by CIGC physicians.
If you are traveling to CIGC from out of town, our Patient Relations Coordinators (PRCs) and Surgical Schedulers will walk you through each step to ensure you are prepared for your arrival. Whether you are coming from across the country or from the other side of the globe, we will do everything we can to assist you in preparing for your procedure.
Women often travel to CIGC for the following conditions:
DualPortGYN® and LAAM-BUAO® are the powerful laparoscopic GYN techniques developed by the minimally invasive GYN specialists at The Center for Innovative GYN Care® (CIGC®). Our specialists use these surgical techniques to give women suffering from complex gynecological conditions a better surgical outcome, with less risk and recovery time.
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:
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
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 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.
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.
If your current physicians are not offering you the GYN care or options you need to maintain fertility, recover quickly and get back to a pain-free life, then CIGC is here for you. We have helped countless out-of-town patients get the care they deserve.
