Read some of their remarkable stories.

Tiffany D.Tiffany, Woodbridge, VA | Multiple GYN Conditions Caused Intense Pain

Dr. Danilyants was very nice, she made me feel so comfortable. She listened to my story, and I didn’t just feel like a number. She gave me options. After thinking for a long time, I started to feel like the hysterectomy was the best option for me. I had struggled with the decision for a while, but I got to the point where I decided it was time.”

Northern Virginia Minimally invasive GYN Michelle, Alexandria, VA | Minimally Invasive Endometriosis Excision

“For nearly 3 years, Michelle had progressively worse bleeding with her cycle, and not in the usual way. Rectal bleeding is not usually considered a sign of a gynecological condition, but it her case, it coincided with every monthly period. Even with that clue, her doctors dismissed it. Michelle consulted three different doctors: a general practitioner, a gastroenterologist and an OB/GYN, none of whom recognized the signs of endometriosis. It took a lot of missteps before finding a specialist to perform what would be a life-changing minimally invasive endometriosis excision and DualPortGYN hysterectomy.”

Northern Virginia Minimally invasive GYN Heather S., Ashburn, VA | Treated With Care: A Laparoscopic Hysterectomy at CIGC

The year before her laparoscopic hysterectomy at CIGC with Paul MacKoul MD, Heather S. started having terrible pain. She couldn’t walk for more than 5 minutes at a time.

“My lower back felt like it was being crushed and the inside of my pelvis felt like it was being shredded. The surgery was performed January 26th, and I’m doing remarkably well.”
