Endometriosis Services in McCook Illinois

Pain Management

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we firmly believe that no woman should live in chronic pain due to endometriosis. We offer comprehensive and personalized care plans for effective Pain Management. Our highly skilled team of medical professionals uses an array of non-surgical approaches including pharmacological treatments, nerve blocks, physical therapy regimens amongst others. We aim at improving the quality of your life by choosing a method that best fits your unique symptom profile and lifestyle.

Hormonal Therapies

Hormonal imbalances are often at the core of endometriosis-related discomforts. Our Hormonal Therapies target these underlying causes to provide you with enormous relief as they can reduce or eliminate painful symptoms associated with your menstrual cycle and slow down the growth of the tissue outside uterus. With our broad range of hormonal treatments from birth control pills to more complex options like Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists and antagonists; it’s about finding what works best for you.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

When conservative approaches don’t completely alleviate your pain or if there is an urgency due to extensive damage caused by severe endometriosis, Minimally Invasive Surgery may be recommended as a treatment option. As trusted experts in state-of-the-art surgical techniques such as laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, we ensure minimal risk while targeting maximum benefits – reducing pain, improving fertility prospects or aiming towards complete elimination of disease-tissue.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment

Endometriosis shouldn’t rob you off motherhood dreams! At Womens Health Group Chicago – McCook division, we employ innovative Fertility Preservation methods such as egg freezing that could guarantee future pregnancy even after undergoing some treatments for endometriosis which may affect fertility adversely. Additionally, specialized fertility treatments like intrauterine insemination and in-vitro fertilization could also be considered based on the individual case assessment.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic discomfort can have surprisingly debilitating consequences to your everyday life. Pelvic Floor Therapy, a less highlighted yet highly effective subservice we offer for endometriosis patients, involves deliberate exercises designed to strengthen or relax the muscles surrounding your pelvic area. This could provide much needed relief from pain during menstruation or sexual activities by improving bladder and bowel functions.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition plays a crucial role in managing endometriosis. Not only does it help combat inflammation but specific dietary changes might even curb growth of disease-tissue. Our dedicated Nutritional Counselors at Womens Health Group Chicago guide you towards adopting healthier eating habits that nourish your body, boosting overall health as well reducing symptoms associated with endometriosis like bloating or fatigue.

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.
