Hysterectomy Services in Chicago Illinois

Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we consider Pre-surgery counseling and evaluation a vital step in your journey towards health. It involves comprehensive medical assessment to determine the appropriate treatment option for individual patients. Our skilled healthcare practitioners discuss the risks and benefits of different types of hysterectomy surgeries, including laparoscopic, abdominal, and vaginal procedures. Tailored care plans are developed based on personal medical history and current status. Patient education is essential; so, we strive to provide a clear understanding of what each surgery entails.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy is one of many advanced services provided by our team at the Women’s Health Group Chicago clinic. This minimally invasive approach allows for quicker recovery times than traditional surgical methods by using small incisions in the abdomen to remove uterus-related issues adequately. This technique reduces scarring and can be performed as an outpatient procedure—helping our patients reclaim their time almost instantly.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

In some scenarios where Laparoscopic or Vaginal Hysterectomy might not be possible or effective, an Abdominal Hysterectomy may be recommended. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, this procedure involves making a larger incision through the belly wall enables direct access to reproductive organs during operations while ensuring minimal complications post-surgery.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Vaginal Hysterectomy offered at our facility promises a less intrusive way out from various uterine problems with no visible scars after surgery because it erases all traces within internal natural passages accessed via vagina instead of any external openings on skin surface used conventionally which adds up to its advantage over others surgical counterparts including lesser recovery period.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

Once your successful operation has concluded, Women’s Health Group Chicago continues to provide top-tier care and support for you. With a compassionate team skilled doctors and nurses oversee your recovery with the utmost sensitivity and empathy. Our staff ensures comfort by promptly addressing all anomalies aside from managing pain effectively through accurate medication prescriptions complementing well-planned rehabilitative strategies expected of high-quality healthcare like ours.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

A hysterectomy can bring about certain hormonal changes within one’s body, often causing menopause-like symptoms regardless of age. To address these issues holistically, we at Women’s Health Group Chicago offer specially tailored Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) plans that help in restoring balance besides safeguarding against such potentially troublesome side-effects post-surgery sans risks ordinarily believed considering patient-specific considerations are carefully factored in before crafting each individual HRT regimen.

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.
