Geoffrey Cly, MD, FACOG
Dr. Cly’s Story
Dr. Geoffrey Cly’s college career began with visions of becoming a lawyer. It wasn’t until Dr. Cly saw the documentary video “The Miracle of Life” in his general biology class that the cycle of life became a burning passion. He knew that day that his future was set. In fact, after seeing the film he changed his major and his life in medicine began.
Today Dr. Cly is a Board-Certified OB/GYN with 20 years of experience. He is one of the most experienced daVinci Robotic, Laparoscopic and Gynecological Surgeons in the Midwest with over 800 Robotic and over 2000 laparoscopic procedures successfully performed. He has delivered over 3000 babies and seen over 100,000 patients in his 20-year career.
His passion doesn’t end with his patients. As a pioneer in daVinci Minimally Invasive GYN surgery adoption that began in 2006 he became an official instructor for Intuitive, the daVinci parent company. Dr. Cly shares his knowledge and expertise by teaching most of the physicians in his region and many of the most accomplished doctors in the Midwest.
Many ask why? Why has he made it his passion to not only stay out in front of his specialty but to also teach the very doctors that could possibly be competitors? Because Dr. Cly believes women deserve to know all treatment options available and have honest, educated and up to date, physicians guiding them on their journey to health and healing. The benefits of robotic and laparoscopic surgeries allow doctors to perform complex surgeries with smaller incisions which causes less pain and allows for much quicker recoveries. This all leads to women who need less aftercare and gives them ability to get back to being productive in all aspects of their lives, mothers, caregivers, careers etc.
Dr. Cly believes all patients deserve active and competent doctors. His motto has always been “do whatever is necessary for the benefit of the patient, regardless of what the system thinks is appropriate.” Each patient is a gift and his Hippocratic oath in becoming a doctor is still the most important oath of all.
