The Center for Innovative GYN Care (CIGC) is committed to providing the best patient results. Treatments for GYN conditions have varying results. For that reason, it is important to understand why we only perform and only recommend DualPortGYN and LAAM procedures for hysterectomy, myomectomy (fibroid removal), cystectomy and other complex GYN procedures.

In order to make the best decision, it’s important to have all of the facts.

THE CIGC ADVANTAGE

Complex GYN conditions require specialist care. The CIGC surgeons perform procedures that protect the patient to ensure optimal outcomes. By controlling for blood loss and improving visibility, even the most complex conditions can be treated in an outpatient setting with better long-term results than other techniques.

CIGC TECHNIQUES

DualPortGYN – Advanced laparoscopic surgery to treat all GYN conditions, including fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cysts and other complex GYN conditions.

LAAM Fibroid Removal For Fertility  – A hybrid of laparoscopic and open techniques, taking the best elements of both for women who are able to maintain fertility.


NON-CIGC TECHNIQUES

Embolization UFE – UFE is not recommended to treat large fibroids or for women who want to get pregnant. Fibroids decrease in size, but do not go away, and for large fibroids, the reduction in bulk may not be enough to reduce symptoms. In many cases, women will need to have multiple procedures, including additional UFE treatments, myomectomy or hysterectomy.

Laparoscopic GYN Procedures  – Other laparoscopic techniques for GYN surgery are limited in what conditions can be treated. Without performing techniques that control for blood loss or improve visibility, standard laparoscopic techniques have a higher incidence of complications and lower positive patient outcomes than CIGC techniques.

Robotic Surgery  – Robotic surgery to treat complex GYN conditions has a higher risk of complications both during the operation (increase blood loss, longer time under anesthesia) and after the operation (damage to the ureter or bowel may appear after surgery is completed, and patients may have to have a second procedure to correct potentially life-threatening injuries)
