The use of power morcellators in GYN surgery has been banned in many hospitals as it can potentially lead to life threatening complications. As a result, the OBGYN performing surgery will often tell patients the surgery has to be done by an open approach. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Center for Innovative GYN Care wants you to know that open surgical procedures NEVER should be offered as an alternative to laparoscopic procedures with the intent to avoid power morcellation. The reason being that there ARE safe and effective minimally invasive procedures like DualPortGYN that do not require the use of a power morcellator.
