Question: Can you tell me about the CIGC Wellness Center and its purpose?


Dr. Natalya Danilyants: Typically, when a patient goes to a center that treats pelvic pain, it is either to someone who focuses on surgery or alternative care centers that focus on nutrition, acupuncture and naturopathic therapies and stay away from traditional Western medicine or surgical therapy. What we’re doing at the CIGC Wellness Center is fusing these together to offer services in addition to surgery for women who have pelvic pain, endometriosis, fibroids or are just looking to focus more on their health and wellbeing. Our team of providers found it exciting to be able to collaborate, fuse these very different modalities and provide all these services in the same center.
