Endometriosis in Frankfort Square

Endometriosis Services in Frankfort Square Illinois

Pain Management

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that endometriosis can result in severe discomfort and chronic pain for many women. Therefore, our primary objective is to aid you in successfully managing this pain in order to regain control over your everyday life. Our specialized team of experts discuss various options with you before deciding on the most effective strategy tailored to your needs; from medicinal therapies such as oral contraceptives or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), to methods like nerve blocks.

Hormonal Therapies

Endometriosis often causes hormonal imbalances which can exacerbate symptoms and complicate daily living. Womens Health Group Chicago offers advanced endocrine treatments aimed at restoring hormonal equilibrium efficiently and safely. Utilizing contraceptive pills, progesterone therapy, GnRH agonists treatment or even aromatase inhibitors based on individual patient circumstance allows us flexibility and precision when addressing complex issues.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

We believe in minimally invasive surgical intervention where possible due to its numerous benefits – smaller incisions mean reduced recovery time and less scarring post-surgery among other advantages. Procedures like laparoscopy have been proven remarkably successful at removing painful fibrous tissue while preserving healthy reproductive organs, allowing quicker resumption of normal daily activities without the burden of persistent pain.

Fertility Preservation & Treatment

For many women diagnosed with endometriosis, fertility preservation becomes a significant concern. At Womens Health Group Chicago serving Frankfort Square region, our dedicated fertility specialists ensure meticulous planning and execution of procedures designed explicitly with preserving future potential pregnancies in mind. Techniques used may include controlled ovarian stimulation for egg retrieval or even IVF treatments according to unique circumstances.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic floor dysfunction is another complication associated with endometriosis, causing pain and discomfort. Our pelvic floor therapy program offers specialized exercises and treatments to help alleviate this problem by improving muscle coordination and strength in the pelvic region. Tailored physical therapy strategies can relieve chronic tension, improve bladder control, limit bowel issues as well as enhance sexual health.

Nutritional Counseling

Lastly, but nonetheless an essential aspect is nutritional counseling we provide at Womens Health Group Chicago. Effectively managing endometriosis includes adopting a healthy lifestyle to boost your overall wellness while mitigating unwanted symptoms of the condition. Our nutritionists guide you towards embracing specific dietary changes that could aid in symptom relief – reducing intake of inflammatory foods while increasing nutrient-rich ones promoting optimal bodily functions.

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.
