Hysterectomy Services in Humboldt Illinois

Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we pride ourselves on providing holistic care to the women in Humboldt. One of our essential services is pre-surgical counseling and evaluation for hysterectomy, a service designed to ensure you are both physically and mentally prepared for surgery. In these sessions, our team will guide you through the process involved in your chosen form of hysterectomy. They will answer any questions you might have about discomfort levels, recovery times, possible risks and complications.

Our friendly counsellors also understand that such operations can be emotionally stressful; thus they offer excellent mental health support during this phase as well.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

For those across Humboldt looking for alternatives with shorter recovery time than traditional methods of hysterectomy – Laparoscopic Hysterectomy provided by Womens Health Group Chicago could prove beneficial. We use state-of-the-art equipment to perform this minimally invasive procedure where we make small incisions in the belly button or abdomen allowing us to remove the uterus without making large cuts.

It’s an outpatient procedure so most patients can go home on the same day after few hours under observation- speeding up their path back to normal life.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

Abdominal Hysterectomy makes part of our core offering at Womens Health Group Chicago servicing even areas like Humboldt. This surgery involves removing the uterus through a larger incision made either horizontally or vertically across your lower abdomen.

While it has a slightly longer recovery period compared to laparoscopic procedures; abdominal hysterectomies allow doctors a better visual field and more space if necessary – it is indeed ideal for complex cases!

Vaginal Hysterectomy

At Women’s Health Group Chicago serving area like Humboldt too, we firmly believe that every woman should access convenient surgical options. That’s why we offer Vaginal Hysterectomy, a procedure that involves removing the uterus through an incision made inside the vagina.

There are no external scars and it often has reduced recovery time compared to abdominal hysterectomies with similar satisfaction rate; making it more attractive for suitable patients in line with their doctor’s advice.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we consider patient care post-surgery an integral part of our services. Our expert team ensures your smooth transition from operative care to home recovery assisting in understanding what to expect, how to speed up healing process without compromising safety.

Your well-being is our utmost priority during your recovery period just as offering stellar healthcare throughout Humboldt!

Hormone Replacement Therapy

The absence of hormones after a hysterectomy can sometimes result in imbalances causing distressing symptoms such as hot flashes or mood swings- this is where Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) comes into play.

Our specialist at Women’s Health Group Chicago will guide you through customized therapy taking into consideration age, health risk factors alongside severity of symptoms ensuring most effective treatment plan-empowering women across Humboldt to regain control over lives faster after undergoing surgeries like hysterectomies!

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.
