Hysterectomy in Bridgeport

Hysterectomy Services in Bridgeport Illinois

Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we prioritize our patients’ wellness and understanding above all else. For women in Bridgeport considering a hysterectomy, this begins with comprehensive pre-surgical counseling and evaluation. Our compassionate team of specialists takes the time to understand your medical history, lifestyle, as well as physical and emotional health to ensure you are fully informed about the procedure’s risks and rewards. It is an essential step to make sure you are physically prepared for surgery while also offering peace of mind.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology for maximum patient comfort is one aspect that sets Womens Health Group Chicago apart when it comes to conducting a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. This less invasive technique uses small incisions which reduces healing time significantly compared to traditional methods. Women from Bridgeport can trust us when seeking minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries designed around their specific needs.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

While non-invasive techniques like laparoscopic surgery have significant benefits, there may be instances where an abdominal hysterectomy becomes necessary.. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we realize each woman’s medical situation is unique which necessitates personalized care tailored specifically towards their individual needs. Our highly trained professionals provide top-tier abdominal hysterectomies ensuring safety throughout the process.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Another alternative method available at Womens Health Group Chicago for qualifying candidates considering a hysterectomy could be vaginal hysterectomy – where uterus removal occurs entirely through the vagina without any abdominal incisions at all.. Serving women residing in Bridgeport, our experts take pride in providing remarkable services coupled with humane touch including post-operation follow-ups until complete recovery.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

After undergoing a surgical procedure such as a hysterectomy, effective post-operative care and recovery is integral to a patient’s overall health. Our dedication doesn’t stop at performing the surgery successfully, but extends way beyond it – by offering meticulous post-operative care designed around your specific recovery needs. We’re with our Bridgeport women every step of the way through their journey towards healing.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

For some patients undergoing hysterectomy, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may be necessary as part of their comprehensive treatment plan. That’s why Womens Health Group Chicago takes a modern approach and offers individualized HRT that can ease certain symptoms brought on by surgical menopause after hysterectomy for those who need it.

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

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.
