“The majority of surgeons would have had to switch to a full abdominal hysterectomy….CIGC skill and expertise allowed them to keep it a laparoscopic procedure, and I was almost fully back to normal in less than a week. My discomfort was very minimal…get a second opinion and evaluate your options. I am so very glad that I did.”

“Florida. I got a LAAM procedure from CIGC at their NJ location just outside Manhattan..I wasn’t a great candidate for the procedures available locally. CIGC removed 7 fibroids and endometriosis. I was on my feet and able to take care of myself and walk around within a few days. Pain was super minimal during the recovery. Over a year later my pain is gone, my life is back, and I feel SO MUCH BETTER!”

“Africa. I was looking for specialty care.. A minimally invasive treatment for my fibroid removal. I also split time between the US and Africa and needed a treatment that accommodated my travel schedule. Fertility was a major consideration, and CIGC was keen on providing care and advice consistent with my reproductive health goals.”

The “Hyper-Specialists” at CIGC have been performing the LAAM procedure for years. Here are the Top 6 Reasons LAAM is the Better Option

LAAM is truly a remarkable advance in fibroid removal, all with a procedure that allows patients to leave the surgery center the same day and be back to work in 7–14 days.

1. Laparoscopic-Assisted Myomectomy Surgery with Bilateral Uterine Artery Occlusion/Ligation
Published in The Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology MacKoul P, Danilyants N, Baxi R, van der Does L, Haworth L.
In the comparison of 1,313 patients who underwent a myomectomy (the review included patients who had LAAM®, robotic, standard laparoscopic, or open myomectomy surgery), LAAM (laparoscopic assisted abdominal myomectomy) showed the best patient outcomes, including removal of large and multiple fibroids, lowest complication rates, and the lowest conversion to open surgery at 0.7 percent. Patients interested in fertility had temporary occlusion of the uterine arteries thereby maintaining full blood flow to the uterus.
