Our specialized pain management procedures are designed to alleviate this chronic strain, offering tailored analgesic therapies for Markham women suffering from endometriosis. Under the careful supervision of professionals, we use advanced medical strategies incorporating both pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods to help manage the throbbing aches safely and effectively.

Hormonal Therapies

Our clinic in Markham also offers hormonal therapy for managing endometriosis. We incorporate updated research findings into our practice to provide patients with cutting-edge treatment plans which may include oral contraceptives or gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists. Hormonal treatments targeted at regulating the menstrual cycle can sometimes reduce or even eliminate the progression of endometrial tissue growth – providing substantial relief from symptoms such as heavy bleeding and severe pelvic pain.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Welcome to pioneering healthcare solutions offered by Womens Health Group Chicago! When conservative measures don’t yield satisfactory results, surgery might be an effective option–this is where our minimally invasive surgical interventions come into play.

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.
