Endometriosis Services in Lemont Illinois

Pain Management for Endometriosis

At Women’s Health Group Chicago in Lemont, one of our primary services is endometriosis pain management. We understand how debilitating this pain can be and our highly skilled team is committed to walking you through a variety of treatment options tailored to your individual needs. Our diverse array of therapies may involve medications, lifestyle modifications or complementary therapies aimed at reducing inflammation, alleviating discomfort and enhancing quality of life.

Hormonal Therapies for Endometriosis

To further combat the symptoms caused by endometriosis, we provide expert hormonal therapy treatments. Hormonal imbalances often make endometriosis symptoms more severe; by finding an optimal balance, we are able to alleviate many common complaints associated with the disease. Expert health practitioners at Women’s Health Group Chicago use advanced diagnostic tools to evaluate hormone levels before prescribing appropriate treatments that can control menstrual cycles optimally while suppressing endometrial tissue growth.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

Our clinic employs cutting-edge minimally invasive surgical methods as part of integrated approach toward combating endometrial pain or removing localized growths triggered by endometrial tissue overgrowth. This strategy not only provides immediate relief but also offers quicker recovery time compared to conventional surgical procedures – making it a preferred option among patients who seek viable long-term solutions without compromising their daily routines on account of prolonged recuperation periods.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment Options for Endo Patients

Enduring fear about fertility loss due to endometriosis is commonplace amongst women diagnosed with this disorder which makes it imperative offering fecundity preserving strategies taking precedence in our healthcare service delivery model. Fertility preservation includes various techniques such as egg freezing that safeguard future child-bearing prospects even post-endotherapy treatments while infertility management involves assisted reproductive technologies that allow conceiving without impediments.

Pelvic Floor Therapy for Endometriosis

Women’s Health Group Chicago in Lemont also includes professional pelvic floor therapy techniques as part of the comprehensive endometriosis treatment plan. By strengthening core pelvic muscles and improving their functionality, we can significantly minimize painful menstrual cramps linked to this disorder. Our on-staff physical therapists provide personalized exercises specifically designed to reduce pelvic pain caused by endometriosis and improve quality of life.

Nutritional Counseling against Endometrial Disorder

Finally, nutritional counseling is an integral part of managing endometriosis symptoms holistically. The bodys reaction to certain foods could worsen inflammation and discomfort; therefore, our team works closely with patients to develop custom nutrition plans that promote overall wellness while reducing inflammation or hormonal imbalance. Women’s Health Group Chicago stands strong alongside women battling endometriosis – but together, we are stronger than the disease.

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.
