Hysterectomy Services in Lincoln Park Illinois

Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we strongly believe in the importance of well-informed decisions, particularly when it comes to your health. With our comprehensive pre-surgical counseling and evaluation service, we ensure that you are aware of all possible options around hysterectomy procedures while considering your personal medical history. Our experts will guide you through the process on a step-by-step basis, addressing any concerns or queries promptly for peace of mind.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

We offer Laparoscopic Hysterectomy as one of the most minimally invasive surgical options for women who reside in Lincoln Park. Utilizing advanced laparoscopy techniques for this procedure means smaller incisions — resulting in less pain post-operation and a swift recovery period. As part of our commitment to using state-of-the-art technology, Women’s Health Group Chicago ensures the highest quality care during these types of surgeries throughout your entire journey with us.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

For various reasons – be they complex situations or personal choices – some patients may opt for an Abdominal Hysterectomy. Our dedicated team at Women’s Health Group Chicago provides specialist support coupled with years of experience catering to the needs arising from this traditional open surgery method amidst Lincoln Park residents which aims to provide long-lasting relief.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

If recommended due to certain conditions such as uterine prolapse or endometrium pathologies, Vaginal Hysterectomies form another category within our range of expertise at Women’s Health Group Chicago. This approach typically implies negligible visible scarring and generally presents shorter hospital stays along with quicker return-to-normalcy rates compared to other forms of hysterectomies provided inclusively for Lincoln Park community members.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

Post operative care and recovery is as significant, if not more so, than the surgery itself. We focus on providing extensive support during this critical phase at Women’s Health Group Chicago by maintaining close, tailored aftercare post-hysterectomy procedures for Lincoln Park residents. We aim to help you recover swiftly with minimum discomfort while also closely monitoring any changes to ensure your well-being.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone fluctuations are common post hysterectomy which can potentially lead to bothersome symptoms ranging from hot flashes to mood swings. To mitigate those effects and improve quality of life for our clients in Lincoln Park, Women’s Health Group Chicago offers targeted Hormone Replacement Therapy options for fine-tuned hormonal balance post-surgery supported by expert consultations every step of the way.

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.
