Our experienced team crafts individual care plans utilizing evidence-based approaches such as medication, lifestyle modifications, and non-pharmacologic interventions with a focus on long-term relief.

Hormonal Therapies for Endometriosis

Hormonal therapies play an essential role in managing endometriosis symptoms. Here at Womens Health Group Chicago, our highly skilled practitioners provide suitable hormonal treatments designed to relieve pain and reduce inflammation caused by endometriosis. We work closely with each patient to choose the correct hormonal therapy based on their specific case, ensuring safety while maximizing symptom control.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

We believe in reducing patient recovery times without compromising efficacy; hence we offer minimally invasive surgical options for treating severe endometriosis cases at Women’s Health Group Chicago. Through laparoscopic techniques or robot-assisted surgery, our renowned surgeons aim to remove lesions effectively causing minimal trauma which translates into lesser post-operative pain and shorter hospital stays.

Our seasoned specialists employ state-of-the-art fertility preservation techniques like oocyte cryopreservation empowering women to put motherhood on hold until they are ready.

Pelvic floor disorders associated with endometriosis can significantly impact daily activities. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer targeted pelvic floor therapy to address pain, strengthen muscles and alleviate bowel and bladder issues. Our trained therapists use an array of techniques personalized for each patient’s needs, affirming their ability to regain control over their bodies.

Nutritional Counseling

Womens Health Group Chicago upholds a holistic approach in our services – recognizing diet’s influence on endometriosis management is part of that philosophy. Through nutritional counseling, we guide you through dietary changes targeting inflammation reduction and promoting overall health.

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

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.
