Endometriosis in Melrose Park

Endometriosis Services in Melrose Park Illinois

Pain Management for Endometriosis

The team at Women’s Health Group Chicago understands that endometriosis can be both physically and emotionally distressing. We are dedicated to providing effective and thorough pain management strategies that target the intense discomfort often associated with this condition. By employing a combination of traditional medications, physical therapies, and advanced techniques like nerve block procedures, we strive to significantly improve your quality of life.

Endometriosis Hormonal Therapies

Through our experience in dealing with endometriosis-related issues, we’ve discovered the significant benefits hormonal therapy can provide. Our experts design personalized hormonal therapy plans based on careful evaluation of each individual’s needs. The aim is to tame the growth of the irritating tissues outside the uterus which can reduce pain intensity as well as decrease associated symptoms.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

When other treatments do not yield desired outcomes, minimally invasive surgery may be recommended by our physicians here at Women’s Health Group Chicago. Our experienced surgeons adopt cutting-edge technologies such as laparoscopy which result in fewer complications post-surgery, quicker recovery times and less visible scarring when compared to traditional methods – all without compromising treatment effectiveness.

Fertility Preservation & Treatment

For women affected by endometriosis who wish to conceive now or in future, fertility preservation becomes a vital concern. Here at Women’s Health Group Chicago serving Melrose Park communities, we’re heavily invested in maintaining optimal reproductive health through various methods including medical therapies and assisted reproductive technology options if necessary.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic floor dysfunction may occur due to varying reasons but is notably common among patients suffering from endometriosis. We offer tailored pelvic floor therapeutic sessions intended to alleviate spasms and tension prevailing within those muscles around your pelvis. This form of physical therapy can lead to better control over bowel and bladder function, reduced pain during intercourse and overall more comfortable life experience.

Nutritional Counselling

Effectively managing endometriosis often requires a well-rounded approach involving proper dietary habits to supplement medical treatments. Our on-board registered dietitians are here to guide you in crafting balanced nutritional plans that may help diminish inflammation inside your body hence lessening the severity of symptoms associated with this disorder. We individualize our counselling because every woman is unique, just as the way endometriosis affects her.

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.
