At Womens Health Group Chicago, we believe in empowering our patients by providing them with comprehensive information so that they can make an informed decision about their treatment. Our pre-surgical counseling and evaluation services are designed to meet the unique needs of each patient. We provide insightful advice for various surgical procedures, including hysterectomy. This includes detailed discussions on the procedure’s risks, benefits, recovery process, alternatives etc., all backed up by complete health checkups and physical evaluations.
A laparoscopic hysterectomy is one of our specialties at Womens Health Group Chicago. The procedure involves a few small incisions made in the belly button allowing our expert surgeons to guide a tiny camera and specialized tools required for surgery. The minimally invasive nature of this technique typically results in lower levels of post-operative pain, less bleeding, quicker recoveries and shorter hospital stays when compared to conventional surgery procedures.
An abdominal hysterectomy conducted at Womens Health Group Chicago entails removing the uterus through an incision in your lower abdomen. This method allows us to directly access both the uterus and surrounding areas during surgery which often translates into higher success rates for resolving specific complex conditions than its non-invasive counterparts. Although recovery time may be slightly longer than other methods, our care team will ensure you receive personalized support throughout every stage.
We also offer vaginal hysterectomies as part of our expansive range of services available within Burnham’s vicinity at Womens Health Group Chicago. During this type of surgery, your surgeon operates through a small cut made inside your vagina instead of cutting into your abdomen which has several advantages like lesser noticeable scars post-operation along with faster healing times due to fewer wounds created internally.
At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that the period following a hysterectomy can be physically and emotionally challenging. That’s why our care team is committed to providing excellent post-operative services to expedite your recovery. We closely monitor your progress, manage any pain or discomfort expeditiously, provide advice regarding suitable activities/exercises and address any possible complications promptly.
We also provide hormone replacement therapy (HRT) at Womens Health Group Chicago for those experiencing menopausal symptoms due to a recent hysterectomy. Hormone levels tend to fluctuate after such procedures often causing multiple side-effects which can be effectively managed through HRT under experts’ guidance here within Burnham’s reach. This leads you into maintaining better health outcomes long-term thereby allowing seamless return back to normalcy in all aspects of life.
