Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the significance of making an informed decision about your body, health, and overall well-being. Therefore, before any significant surgical procedure such as a hysterectomy, our team prioritizes comprehensive pre-surgical counseling and evaluation. Our experts will thoroughly discuss the details of the upcoming surgery with you, including its potential benefits and risks, to allow you to make an educated decision about your health care options. Furthermore, our specialists perform rigorous evaluations to assess your physical preparedness for surgery.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Womens Health Group Chicago is proud to provide advanced laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures for patients in Darien area. A less invasive option compared to traditional methods; a Laparoscopic Hysterectomy involves minute incisions in the abdomen through which slender instruments are introduced for performing this delicate operation. This medical advancement reduces recovery time, minimizes post-operative discomfort resulting in a quicker return back to normal activities guaranteeing optimal patient satisfaction.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

Our expert team also specializes in abdominal hysterectomies—procedures that involve surgically removing the uterus through an incision either across or down the abdomen. Not only do we focus on skilled execution during these more complex procedures but ensure personalized care throughout the healing process too.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Another treatment option available at Women’s Health Group Chicago is vaginal hysterectomy—a method wherein no external cuts are made as surgeons access and remove uterus through vagina thereby rendering minimal visible scarring along with faster recovery times than other types of surgical approaches – promising high quality healthcare services without compromising on aesthetics.

Post-operative Care & Recovery Assistance

We strongly believe that successful surgery doesn’t end when you leave operating theatre- instead it continues long into recovery process. Hence, we ensure our patients from Darien experience seamless post-operative care encompassing pain management strategies, mobility support and wound care among other necessary guidance – providing utmost nurturing environment for swift recuperation.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Sometimes after a hysterectomy procedure, women may need to consider hormone replacement therapy. The experts of Womens Health Group Chicago are here to guide you through this often complex journey. Depending on each individual’s unique needs and health history, various options including bio-identical hormones can be explored ensuring personalized treatment plan catering specifically to your wellbeing.

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.
