Many women who struggle with severe symptoms from complex GYN conditions have limited options for treatment close to home. It can be challenging to find a doctor who will listen and who is able to provide minimally invasive treatment for complex cases like large fibroids or extensive endometriosis. We often see women who were recommended hysterectomy when it wasn’t necessary, or open surgery with up to 2 months recovery time, as their physician was not able to provide a less invasive approach.
The Center for Innovative GYN Care launched a travel program for women who reside outside the Washington DC area, and don’t have minimally invasive options for treatment closer to home. We’ve had patients travel to CIGC from 42 states and 8 countries around the world. Some of our patients have kindly agreed to share their stories and spoke about their journey and how they have been feeling since surgery.
Raynelle, New Jersey: Minimally Invasive Fibroid Removal With LAAM
“My mother, my husband, my sister, my mother-in-law – anyone who had a stake in me getting pregnant - they all started doing research and talking to friends. Two separate sources recommended The Center for Innovative GYN Care. I have family in the area, so I was able to stay with them for the rest of that week. I went back to work a week later. I could have gone back before then.”
Sheridan, Texas: Minimally Invasive Endometriosis Excision With DualPortGYN
“After the surgery, it was a bit rough immediately after, but by Saturday, just over a day after I returned home, I was up and around. By comparison, a year and a half ago I had a partial hysterectomy that was an open procedure. It took me weeks to get back on my feet and start to feel like I could get back to normal activity. It’s nice to have my energy back. I like to keep myself busy.”
Jenny, Wisconsin: Minimally Invasive Fibroid Removal With LAAM
“My mom checked on me the first two days after the surgery because she felt she needed to, but other than spending time with me, I really didn’t need much. I had heard and seen what other women had gone through for fibroid removal. Their recoveries were much longer. I really appreciated the small incision. I compared what I experienced to other women when I got home, and they were amazed.”
Cassandra, New York: Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy With DualPortGYN
“The first thing I did when I started to come out of it, I started to look under the sheet and I said ‘Yay, my stomach’s flat!’ and then went back to sleep. I went back to New York on the second day after my surgery, and I felt fine to travel. I feel like I sleep a lot better now, my sleeping pattern has returned, I have energy. And I haven’t changed anything else. That part has been very gratifying.”
