GYN Treatment During Covid-19
At The Center for Innovative GYN Care, GYN surgery and safety have always gone hand in hand. Here’s what we’re doing to keep you safe until — and beyond — the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the United States awaits full vaccination against COVID-19 for all its citizens, The Center for Innovative GYN Care is committed to providing you with the GYN treatment you need while minimizing your risk of exposure. Our goal is to help you find relief from pelvic pain, excessive bleeding and other symptoms of GYN conditions.

Putting Your Needs First
Women who put off treatment for severe GYN health conditions risk their symptoms getting worse, which prolongs suffering and eventually may require more complex treatments.
CIGC specialists prioritize your health and safety and make sure you are evaluated as quickly as possible.
Schedule your surgical procedure through CIGC without the lengthy wait you may encounter for hospital-based surgery, where pandemic-related delays are more common.
Using the Safest Facilities
CIGC specialists practice at select ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), freestanding, fully equipped and certified facilities that are independent from hospitals.
At an ASC, your surgery will be an outpatient procedure, which means you can return to the safety of your home the same day.
Unlike hospitals, ASCs do not treat patients with COVID-19, their smaller footprint is easier to keep sanitized, and only a few patients are scheduled at any given time.
Our chosen ASCs adhere to the following safety measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, state departments of health and leading medical associations:
- State-mandated COVID testing, as required, prior to the surgical procedure, with provisions for rescheduling positive-testing patients after a 14-day quarantine.
- Screening of staff members for cold- or flu-like symptoms and protocols for them to stay home if they are sick.
- Screening of patients upon arrival and rescheduling of those with cold or flu symptoms.
- Enforcement of 6-foot social distancing and wearing of face masks.
- Personal protective equipment for all medical staff.

Consulting Via Telemedicine
CIGC offers virtual visits via phone or video conferencing, giving you easy access to our advanced GYN specialists without leaving your home.
Our doctors frequently use virtual visits for both initial consultations and surgical preoperative counseling. Telemedicine appointments are as comprehensive and take the same amount of time as in-person visits. Conducting the session from the safety of your home adds convenience and peace of mind while COVID-19 is a concern.
How can gynecological issues be handled online when pelvic exams are central to most OBGYN visits?
Typically, patients who meet with our doctors have already had a recent ultrasound or MRI ordered by their OBGYN. This imaging can be shared through our secure, HIPAA-compliant telemedicine platform, allowing our specialists to evaluate the results. The imaging, combined with information about the patient’s medical history, symptoms and treatment goals informed during the consultation, enable our experts to diagnose the condition and suggest appropriate treatment options. In most cases, an additional pelvic exam won’t be needed.
Learn more about how telemedicine appointments can meet your needs and how our process works.
