FDA Issues Power Morcellator Warning, CIGC Responds

The FDA announced a recommendation to all manufacturers of power morcellation tools on Monday, stating that there should be a boxed warning to indicate the tool may spread cancer during gynecologic surgeries.

The Center for Innovative Care (CIGC) responds to this recommendation and outlines why the use of power morcellation is currently prevalent, yet completely unnecessary for the advanced laparoscopic surgeons at CIGC and their innovative GYN surgical techniques. Read the CIGC response on our official blog here.

At The Center for Innovative GYN Care, power morcellators are never used for fibroid removal. Visit innovativegyn.com for more information on innovative surgical techniques performed by our trained laparoscopic physicians: Paul Mackoul, MD; Natalya Danilyants, MD; Britton Chahine, MD.
