Our skilled surgeons at WHG Chicago offer laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures. This minimally invasive operation involves small incisions using state-of-the-art equipment allowing quicker recovery times compared to traditional surgery methods. Serving women across Berwyn who choose this treatment option benefit from expedited healing processes which typically translates into shorter hospital stays and less post-operative discomfort.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we strive to address complex gynecological conditions efficiently by offering abdominal hysterectomies when necessary as per individualized circumstances. In certain cases where a complete overview of the reproductive system is required or large uterine fibroids exist, this procedure allows full access whilst preserving surrounding tissues minimizing overall impact on patients’ health post operation.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Promising less visible scarring and comparatively faster recuperation periods compared to other types of hysterectomies, our vaginal hysterectomy service stands as another testament to our commitment towards prioritizing patient needs through effective surgical management options suitable for residents in Berwyn area undergoing gynecological operations thus easing their pain-points along their road towards recovery.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

Transitioning back into daily routines after significant surgeries like a hysterectomy can be challenging. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we offer comprehensive post-operative care programs designed to support your recovery journey. Coupled with regular follow-up visits to monitor the healing process and personalized advice tailored towards optimizing wound care, dietary adjustments back into normal physical activities etc., Berwyn-resident patients can find comfort in knowing that they aren’t alone during this crucial period.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hysterectomies may sometimes lead to early-onset menopause due to changes in hormone production causing various symptoms such as hot flashes or loss of bone mass amongst others. We provide holistic end-to-end patient management solutions including tailor-made customized Hormone Replacement Therapies for our Berwyn-area women, thus tackling unexpected outcomes head on serving their unique hormonal needs effectively, aiming towards a smoother transition adjusting back into normal life after surgery.

I've been coming to Dr. Awad and Dr. Mike for over 30 years. Never had a bad experience and actually look forward to chatting with them both. I was a little sad and nervous when I was told Dr. Mike was unavailable today (delivering babies!) so I saw Dr. Lexi. I should have known Dr. Mike would only hire the best to work with him. Dr. Lexi was kind and knowledgeable. She asked all the right questions and was very gentle. Great staff as well.
