Our caring professionals will guide you through understanding your condition, alternative treatments (if available), potential risks, and benefits of undergoing a hysterectomy.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

In innovative healthcare provision, we offer laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures for eligible patients within Hegewisch as one of our key services at Womens Health Group Chicago. This minimally invasive method allows us to remove a woman’s uterus without large incisions by using advanced surgical technology. It results in less pain and shorter recovery time compared to traditional methods ensuring patients can return quickly to their normal lives.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

The experienced medical professionals at Womens Health Group Chicago are also skilled in performing abdominal hysterectomies where need necessitates it for the women of Hegewisch community. Despite involving an incision on the lower abdomen than its counterparts, abdominal hysterectomy has been proven effective particularly when dealing with larger uteri or if there’s a presence of widespread disease like cancer which needs absolute removal.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Our clinic is dedicated to offering various types of hysterectomies including vaginal hysterectomies as part of our diverse portfolio catering to women across Hegewisch. A vaginal hysterectomy involves removing the uterus through the vagina thus eliminating visible scars post-operation; an approach recommended whenever possible due to its fewer complications plus quicker recovery period over other forms such as abdominal surgery.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

Post-operative care is as important as the procedure, so we at Womens Health Group Chicago take it seriously. Our dedicated team of professionals ensures that all patients get optimal post-operative care following their hysterectomy operations whether laparoscopic, abdominal or vaginal. We create individualized recovery plans focusing on pain management, healing assistance and emotional support during this crucial phase.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Realizing the significant hormonal changes that occur post-hysterectomy, Womens Health Group Chicago offers hormone replacement therapy to women in Hegewisch experiencing uncomfortable menopause symptoms due to hormone imbalances. Our specialists help restore normalcy through managing these symptoms which may range from hot flashes, mood swings among others to improve your overall quality of life after a major gynaecological surgery like a 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.
