Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we understand the stress and worry that come with facing a hysterectomy. To mitigate these fears, our dedicated team provides comprehensive pre-surgical counseling and evaluation services to our valued Glenview patients. In this initial phase, you will receive thorough explanations about what the procedure involves, potential risks or complications associated with it, as well as alternatives options available for your condition. Our goal is to empower you to make informed decisions about your health so that you feel confident stepping into surgery.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Advancements in medical technology now allow us to perform less invasive procedures such as Laparoscopic Hysterectomies. This technique uses small incisions through which a tiny camera (laparoscope) means less physical trauma and quicker recovery time than traditional surgeries. With an experienced surgeon from Womens Health Group Chicago at the helm of this operation right here in Glenview, you can be assured of excellent outcomes accompanied by personalized care every step of the way.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

When minimally invasive techniques are not possible due to certain factors like large fibroids complications or previous surgeries, we turn toward Abdominal Hysterectomy.

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.
