Pain Management

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that endometriosis can be an incredibly painful condition that disrupts your daily life. Our highly skilled team of healthcare professionals provides effective pain management solutions tailored to each patient’s unique needs. We utilize a range of methods including medication, physical therapy, and alternative therapies such as acupuncture and massage. By accurately diagnosing the source of the pain and treating it holistically, our aim is to restore comfort and quality of life for women suffering from endometriosis in Greater Grand Crossing.

Hormonal Therapies

Many women with endometriosis find relief through hormonal therapies which are often used as an initial treatment option before surgery becomes necessary. Hormones are significantly involved in the course of this disease as estrogen encourages endometrial growth while progestins limit it. Hence, regulating these hormones effectively helps manage symptoms related to this disorder proficiently. At Womens Health Group Chicago we customize hormone treatment plans after careful examination and evaluation ensuring precise delivery for maximum benefit.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Here at Women’s Health Group Chicago, we pride ourselves on utilizing state-of-the-art technology to perform minimally invasive surgeries for serious cases of endometriosis where conservative treatments fail or when fertility is affected. This includes techniques like laparoscopy or robotic surgical procedures that cause less postoperative discomfort, fewer complications and quicker recovery times compared to traditional open surgery approaches.

Fertility Preservation & Treatment

Endometriosis sometimes contributes towards infertility due to inflammation damaging ovaries or fallopian tubes obstructing egg release making conception challenging. Understanding how stressful this can be; our specialists dedicate their expertise in early detection precisely managing these conditions thereby enhancing chances for future pregnancy successfully within optimal-time frames mitigating risks associated under regular monitoring adapting treatments accordingly providing supportive care throughout your journey.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Endometriosis often affects the pelvic floor muscles and causes chronic pain. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we believe in treating the cause and not just the symptoms, with our comprehensive pelvic floor therapy programs that help alleviate discomfort. Our specially trained therapists use a combination of specialist exercises and manual therapies to strengthen weakened muscles, improve bladder control, remove scar tissue related to surgery or endometriosis itself, improving overall well-being.

Nutritional Counseling

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we strongly believe that nutrition plays a key part in managing diseases like endometriosis. We offer personalized counseling sessions aimed at creating an appropriate nutritional plan working hand-in-hand together supplementing other treatments precisely aiding better health while limiting potential detrimental impacts associated with this condition through proper understanding of diet’s influence towards hormonal balance enabling more effective management strategies optimizing quality-of-life enhancing outcomes consistently for each unique individual serviced by us.

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.
