Endometriosis Services in Lincoln Square Illinois

Pain Management

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand the debilitating pain that can accompany endometriosis. Our expert medical team is dedicated to formulating effective pain management strategies that are tailored specifically to you and your symptoms. We believe in a holistic approach and employ various techniques such as nerve blocks, physical therapy and medication adjustments to make daily life manageable for our patients. Our goal is not simply to mask the pain but rather alleviate it – focusing on restoring function so you can participate fully in all areas of your life.

Hormonal Therapies

Endometriosis often has roots in hormonal imbalances; hence, our committed experts at Womens Health Group Chicago use advanced hormone therapies uniquely catered to each patient’s needs. We take into consideration every facet of your health history before recommending treatments like oral contraceptives, progestin therapy or gonadotropin-releasing hormone medications. All with the aim of mitigating endometriosis symptoms while bolstering overall health.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

When conservative treatments aren’t enough, surgery may become necessary for managing endometriosis effectively. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgeries such as laparoscopy and robotic-assisted procedures designed specifically for fibroid identification and removal without causing undue stress on the body. Not only do these techniques aid faster recovery times but they also leave minimal scarring compared to traditional surgical methods.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment

Being diagnosed with Endometriosis doesn’t mean putting off dreams of starting a family due to fertility issues associated with this condition. The specialists at Womens Health Group Chicago provide cutting-edge fertility preservation services along with treatment options including IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) when required, maximizing chances of conception even amid persistent concerns about fertility.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

The strain that endometriosis places on your pelvic floor muscles can lead to chronic discomfort or pain. The Womens Health Group Chicago offers tailored Pelvic Floor therapies, where a specialized physical therapist works with you to alleviate muscle tension and build strength over time. Our individualized approach coupled with the latest training techniques ensures most beneficial outcomes depending on the advancement and impact of your condition.

Nutritional Counseling

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we believe in complete wellness which includes what you eat. That’s why nutritional counselling is a key part of our endometriosis management strategies. By providing well-balanced dietary advice along with specific suggestions geared towards managing inflammation and hormone levels, we aim to support health from inside out. We understand each patient’s needs are unique so every consultation aims at creating an intimate understanding between food intake and symptoms; guiding patients through their nutritional journey against Endometriosis.

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

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.
