This is a disease that can cause severe pain, and for now, has no cure. For many women, choosing the right specialist who fully understands the disease, and how seemingly unrelated symptoms are connected due to the unpredictable nature of endometriosis. The inflammation it causes can result in scarring within the pelvic cavity, so that organs stick together. Women have reported extreme pain, heavy bleeding, bloody diarrhea, pain urinating and other symptoms that could also be misdiagnosed as digestive problems.

For many women, regaining health and energy includes taking care of their GYN health, too. Long standing conditions like endometriosis, fibroids, ovarian cysts, pelvic adhesions and other conditions often take a back seat to everything else, that is until they can no longer be ignored. Get ahead of the problem this year.

Screen Shot 2015-12-31 at 7.01.14 PMThe past year has been remarkable for The Center for Innovative GYN Care.

Many of our patients have kindly shared their stories about their incredible recoveries after surgery in blog posts, interviews with the media, and with family and friends. Several have undertaken their own advocacy efforts with research and support groups for endometriosis, fibroids and other GYN conditions.

As we look back at the year, we are struck by how these women are all looking ahead. Here are their stories of how their lives have changed for the better. We couldn’t be more grateful for their continued support in helping other women find us so that we can help them get back to living their lives.

Thank you to all of our patients and Happy New Year!

“Our focus allows us to provide the highest level of skill to each patient,” said Dr. Paul MacKoul, MD. “When it comes to performing GYN surgery, women need to look for minimally invasive outpatient options, and seek a second opinion. Too many doctors are recommending surgery that would be performed as open or robotic procedures. These require a hospital stay and have lengthy recoveries; they are more expensive, and they offer no benefit to the patient. CIGC specialists provide advanced minimally invasive surgical procedures in an outpatient setting so that patients can have the best possible option for their condition. They return to their own homes the same day with much less pain, and eliminate the need for a hospital stay and all of the negatives associated with that.”
