Hysterectomy at Age 25 Didn't Stop Endometriosis Pain

Dr. Natalya Danilyants, co-founder of the Center for Innovative GYN Care in Maryland, said Stage 4 endometriosis makes it almost impossible to remove all the tissue. If the tissue isn’t entirely removed, the endometriosis can return with a vengeance.


Letting Fibroids Grow Can Lead To Infertility, Anemia

What most women don’t realize is that fibroids can affect reproductive health. Even fibroids that don’t cause any symptoms normally may increase the risk of complications during pregnancy. Increased risk of miscarriage and early delivery are potential outcomes.

Dr. Danilyants and her team are stellar! I found them doing my own research because my GYN told me she could only do an open surgery for a fibroid removal which would have put me out of work for 4 weeks!!! With Dr. D and her team, I was on my feet and back to work in one week! Can't thank her enough.

Having had a hysterectomy for a very large fibroid, I simply cannot say enough good things about Dr. Danilyants! I traveled from Toronto 4 weeks ago for my surgery and within less than a week, more like 4 days, I had to remind myself that I had had surgery. Scars are almost nonexistent, stomach is flat again and there was virtually no postoperative pain!

I was told by my gynecologist that I would need a C-section hysterectomy to remove my fibroids which were rapidly growing. I am so thankful that I found Dr. Danilyants. I flew across the US to have her do my surgery with no regrets. I would recommend her to any woman dealing with fibroids or any other gynecological issues.

Dr. Danilyants is the best! I had a laparoscopic resection of endometriosis and removal of an ovarian cyst a few years ago. I had surgery on Friday and was back to work on Tuesday with no pain. I recently had a recurrent ovarian cyst and wouldn’t consult with anyone else. This practice is the only choice for minimally invasive surgery!
