The Center for Innovative GYN Care treats women who suffer from complex GYN conditions that require expert laparoscopic surgery. The techniques used at CIGC were developed and perfected by the founders, Dr. Paul MacKoul and Dr. Natalya Danilyants with the goal of helping women suffering from these conditions to have advanced surgery with extremely small incisions. As a result, recovery is just a few days, compared to weeks for other procedures, getting them back to their lives faster with less pain


On December 3, 1988, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Rho Xi Omega Chapter was chartered by 80 dynamic women. They believed Baltimore would be better served with the establishment of a second graduate chapter. The chartering was completed under the leadership of Soror Idell Pugh, the North Atlantic Regional Director. Our chapter was grounded in a need, a desire to expand the reach of Alpha Kappa Alpha in Baltimore. This foundation has guided our chapter growth, execution of programs of service, and sisterly spirit since 1988.
