Hysterectomy Services in Glendale Heights Illinois

Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

The Womens Health Group in Chicago demonstrates a deep commitment to women’s health by addressing patient distress right from the initial phases. Offering comprehensive pre-surgical counseling, our team tends to all your concerns related to hysterectomy procedures. To effectively guide you through your treatment journey, we initiate each process with an evaluation. This thorough examination aids us in understanding your unique health profile better and helps devise the best surgical approach that aligns with your condition.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

We pledge to prioritize our patients’ comfort at all times, which led us to embrace minimally invasive surgery techniques like laparoscopic hysterectomy. With smaller incisions leading to quicker recovery time alongside reduced post-operative pain, this technique enhances overall patient experience significantly. The skilled practitioners at Womens Health Group navigate intricate surgeries such as these seamlessly due to their vast surgical exposure garnered over years of delivering targeted healthcare solutions.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

When needed for specific medical reasons or after considering the patient’s preference, our highly trained surgeons are proficient in performing abdominal hysterectomies too. We ensure precision while retaining the direct vision advantage this traditional procedure provides. Our proficiency empowers us to carry out every step diligently so that patients can rest easy knowing they are under excellent care.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

As a practice centered on prioritizing women’s wellness first- vaginal hysterectomy is another method on our roster performed by accomplished professionals within our facility – a less intrusive option compared to abdominal hysterectomies – leaving no exterior scars and promoting faster healing times for most cases. Suitable for various conditions, we advise it after meticulous consultation ensuring complete harmony between treatment received and desired outcomes.

Post-operative Care & Recovery

While focusing on delivering victorious results during treatments comes naturally owing to our dedication, we broadened our care scope to include comprehensive post-operative recovery too. Womens Health Group appreciates the importance of holistic healing and provides excellent support throughout each patient’s journey. Our team of dedicated caregivers work round-the-clock ensuring your smooth transition back into daily life.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Often times after certain hysterectomy procedures, patients might encounter hormonal imbalances which require addressing promptly. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we provide expert hormone replacement therapy aimed at restoring harmony in bodily functions affected by these changes – always aligned with personal health history and current needs for optimum results. With us, expect total guidance understanding benefits versus potential risks linked to every prospect before settling on any course.

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.
