Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we prioritize our patients’ health and well-being. We believe in being fully prepared for your procedure to ensure the best possible results. To this end, our pre-surgical counseling and evaluation is an important aspect of the care we provide. You can expect a compassionate environment where any fears or concerns you may have about your hysterectomy will be addressed by our highly experienced OBGYN team based in Chicago Loop. Our counselors are skilled at walking through every step of the process with you, ensuring you understand all aspects of the surgery.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

We are proud to offer Laparoscopic Hysterectomy at Womens Health Group Chicago as one of our many advanced surgical methods aiming to minimize patient discomfort and recovery time. This minimally invasive technique uses small incisions instead of large abdominal cuts typically associated with traditional hysterectomies without compromising effectiveness. As such procedures undertaken within the bustling heart of Chicago Loop allow women to resume their active lives as fast as possible.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

For complex gynecological conditions that may not be suitable for laparoscopic approach, Women’s Health Group Chicago offers Abdominal Hysterectomy as a reliable alternative treatment option. This open surgery requires more extensive incision but it allows for greater visibility during operation which significantly enhances outcomes especially for more complicated cases or larger uteruses.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal Hysterectomy is another specialized service provided by Womens Health Group Chicago dedicated primarily towards improving quality of life while minimizing invasive intervention wherever applicable. During this procedure, uterus removal takes place through vagina thereby circumventing need for abdominal incisions resulting in minimal external scarring and shorter hospital stay overall compared to other techniques.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

Ensuring an optimum recovery process after surgery is imperative to us at Womens Health Group Chicago. Every patient has a unique journey, and our post-operative care programs are designed with this in mind. Our approach combines appropriate pain management techniques, recommended physical therapy exercises, careful monitoring of your healing progress and ongoing support within the active surroundings of Chicago Loop encouraging a quicker return to daily activities.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hysterectomy patients often experience hormonal changes that can significantly alter their quality of life. As part of our comprehensive treatment plan, we offer Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to counter these issues effectively while eliminating discomforting symptoms such as hot flashes or mood swings frequently associated with menopause or post-hysterectomy condition ensuring that every woman in the lively neighborhood of Chicago Loop gets full access to comfortable living both during and after surgery.

I’ve had the absolute best experience here at Women’s Health Group. I often get anxious when visiting doctors, but Lexi and the team here have always made me feel very safe and relaxed. I had to get some blood work done and they drew my blood on-site at the clinic, which was super convenient! I was encouraged to lay down and rest afterwards for as long as I needed, and I never felt rushed. I’ve also gotten an IUD here and it was a million times easier than I expected. Lexi is just fantastic and talked me through the whole process! The team here will do everything in their power to help you receive the care you need, and I highly recommend this clinic.
