What Makes Us Different and What It Means for You
The Center for Innovative GYN Care® (CIGC®) offers innovative surgical GYN treatments, using small, strategically placed incisions to minimize pain and prevent complications with virtually invisible scarring. Our DualPortGYN® and LAAM® techniques guarantee safer and more efficient GYN surgery for conditions such as fibroids and endometriosis. Our patients are able to get on with their lives soon after surgery because the recovery times are minimal. Most surgeries are performed in an outpatient setting, so patients can return home the same day.
Unlike a standard OBGYN, CIGC surgeons are board-certified, fellowship-trained, and focus 100% on innovative, minimally invasive GYN surgery for complex conditions. We have redefined the meaning of minimally invasive GYN surgery, providing some of the most advanced procedures for women around the world. We care for each patient as a true individual, and through a detailed and personalized approach, we have our patients back on their feet as swiftly as possible.
Our board-certified GYN surgery specialists have been published in several scholarly journals and have proven the effectiveness of their innovative DualPortGYN and LAAM techniques.
