CIGC physicians are laparoscopic surgical specialists who have dedicated their careers to the performance of minimally invasive GYN care. Hysteroscopy may be performed to detect abnormal areas in the endometrial lining and remove cells for examination in a laboratory.
At the end of treatment, patients get to walk away with minimal scarring. The information does not dictate an exclusive course of treatment or procedure to be followed and should not be construed as excluding other acceptable methods of practice.
