We make it a point to establish an open line of communication between patients and healthcare providers to ensure that you are well-informed about what the process entails.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy is one of the minimally invasive methods we offer at Womens Health Group Chicago. This advanced method requires tiny incisions instead of large abdominal cuts resulting in less post-operative pain, fewer complications, shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery time for patients undergoing this procedure. Our expert OBGYNs have performed countless laparoscopic hysterectomies providing excellent outcomes for women across Countryside.

Not all conditions can be effectively managed by minimally invasive techniques; sometimes more conventional approaches might be necessary. In those cases, the experienced staff at Womens Health Group Chicago are adept at performing Abdominal Hysterectomies which involve removal through an abdominal incision. The use of this traditional technique has enabled us to provide relief to hundreds of women from various reproductive issues throughout Countryside.

Vaginal hysterectomy is another approach within our range of services available for women in Countryside who need a full or partial uterus removal but want less visible scarring compared to other forms like abdominal procedures. We champion personalized care hence depending upon individual patient needs & context; we have competently performed numerous vaginal hysterectomies ensuring minimal discomfort during recovery periods.

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.
