Pain Management

At the Women’s Health Group Chicago, we understand that living with endometriosis can be challenging due to the persistent pain it often causes. We are committed to providing effective pain management strategies tailored to your unique needs. Our clinic in Lincolnwood focuses on using both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic techniques for controlling chronic endometriosis-related pain. These may include physical therapy, stress management techniques or medicines like anti-inflammatories and over-the-counter analgesics.

Hormonal Therapies

Endometriosis is a hormonal condition and thus requires hormone-targeting treatment plans for maximum effectiveness. At the Women’s Health Group Chicago, we offer various hormonal therapies designed to alleviate symptoms of endometriosis by suppressing estrogen production, which is known to exacerbate this condition. Depending upon your case specifics and overall health profile, our doctors may prescribe birth control pills, progestins or GnRH (Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone) Agonists as part of your personalized treatment plan.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

The Women’s Health Group Chicago offers minimally invasive surgery options designed not only for symptomatic relief but also targeting at potential sources causing Endometriosis-related issues like pelvic cysts or adhesions. With advancements in surgical technology such as laparoscopy and robotic-assisted procedures, these surgeries involve smaller incisions leading reduced healing time compared traditional open surgery.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment

One area greatly impacted by endometriosis is fertility; our group recognizes how distressing this link can be for many women who dream of having their own family one day. That’s why another key service offered at our Lincolnwood clinic involves fertility preservation treatments suitable for individuals diagnosed with endometriosis aiming future pregnancies preserving quality of egg reserves in early stages of the disease where possible.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Our experts at the Women’s Health Group Chicago understand that endometriosis can lead to a variety of pelvic complications, including muscle tightness and pain with intercourse. To help our patients overcome these challenges, we provide comprehensive pelvic floor therapy options aimed at improving strength and flexibility of your pelvic muscles.

Nutritional Counseling

The role diet plays in managing symptoms cannot be underestimated. That’s why we offer personalized nutritional counseling based on latest research linking certain dietary modifications with symptom relief from Endometriosis related discomforts. Enjoy tailor made plans suggesting nutrient rich food favorable for inflammation reduction while averting those proven to worsen symptoms.

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.
