Why CIGC

An Innovative GYN Experience

Care Designed to Fit Your Life

Laparoscopic specialists at The Center for Innovative GYN Care® (CIGC®) have one mission: to give you the personalized, world-class surgery experience you deserve.  

This means doing more than just treating the symptoms of your GYN condition.  

You deserve a minimally invasive procedure that minimizes discomfort and disruption to your life. That’s why we developed DualPortGYN® and LAAM®, advanced surgical techniques with clear advantages over other methods of surgery for fibroids, endometriosis and other GYN conditions. 

  • Just two or three 5-millimeter incisions. You’ll have minimal scarring.
  • Less time under anesthesia. Most procedures are done in about an hour.
  • Less pain. We spare your abdominal muscles.
  • Return home the same day. Our techniques enable complex GYN procedures to be performed on an outpatient basis.
  • The fastest recovery of any surgical approach. Most women can resume their active life in about a week.
  • The highest level of safety. Enjoy peace of mind with our consistently low complication rates.
Find the right specialists for your GYN treatment.

A Worry-Free Environment During COVID-19

Our specialists practice at select ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), freestanding, fully equipped facilities that are independent from hospitals.

Unlike hospitals, ASCs do not treat patients with COVID-19, their smaller footprint is easier to sanitize, and only a few patients are scheduled at any given time.  

Plus, your treatment can be scheduled quickly, giving you relief from your symptoms sooner. 

A Gynecology Surgery Center of Distinction

CIGC is recognized as a Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Surgery by AAGL (the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists).
