Endometriosis in Grand Crossing

Endometriosis Services in Grand Crossing Illinois

Pain Management for Endometriosis

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we take a comprehensive approach to managing endometriosis pain. Our team of skilled healthcare professionals employs the latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques to pinpoint and alleviate pain associated with this chronic condition. By considering all aspects of your health, including lifestyle factors that can contribute to or exacerbate symptoms, we strive to provide personalized solutions that fit your unique needs.

Hormonal Therapies for Endometriosis

Hormone-based therapies play an essential role in effectively managing endometriosis at Womens Health Group Chicago. A tailored hormonal treatment regimen can reduce inflammation and inhibit the growth of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterus—a hallmark sign of the disease. Hormonal therapies may include oral contraceptives or other forms of hormone medications that work by controlling estrogen levels within your body.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

Our top-rated clinicians are proud to offer minimally invasive surgical options when dealing with severe cases of endometriosis. Utilizing state-of-the-art procedures such as laparoscopy or robotic-assisted surgery enables us to diagnose and treat endometrioses while avoiding large incisions — reducing postoperative discomfort and recovery times for our patients in Grand Crossing.

Fertility Preservation & Treatment Options

Endometriosis often poses significant challenges to fertility; however, with careful planning and early intervention from Womens Health Group Chicago experts, childbearing can still be a reality for many affected women. Using the most advanced fertility preservation methods alongside customized treatment strategies ensures we’re maximizing every opportunity on your path towards parenthood in spite/despite facing this complicating factor.

Pelvic Floor Therapy Services

Enduring persistent pelvic pain due to endometriosis could result in chronic tension and dysfunction within your pelvic floor muscles. This is why our Women’s Health Group Chicago team includes experienced physiotherapists who specialize in targeted pelvic floor therapy. This form of compassionate, non-invasive treatment can significantly alleviate pain, improve bladder control, and enhance overall function.

Nutritional Counseling for Managing Endometriosis

In conjunction with medical treatments and therapies, effective nutrition strategies have been shown to make a significant impact on managing endometriosis symptoms. Our nutritional counseling program at Womens Health Group Chicago revolves around crafting individualized dietary plans that foster inflammation reduction and promote hormonal balance—factors key towards enhancing quality of life for women grappling with this condition across Grand Crossing.

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.
