Hysterectomy Services in Montrose Illinois

Pre-Surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we prioritize patient education as part of our comprehensive suite of services. Our pre-surgical counseling and evaluation service for hysterectomy is meticulously designed to arm you with all the necessary information before opting for this surgery. We have experts dedicated to discussing any fears, queries or concerns related to the process. This service allows us to assess your suitability for hysterectomy whilst taking into account your overall health status, wellbeing, medical history, lifestyle factors, personal preferences and future plans.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Our clinic is known far beyond Montrose for its proficiency in laparoscopic hysterectomy procedures – a less invasive surgical procedure that enables faster recovery times compared to traditional surgery methods. In this process, small incisions are made in the abdomen through which instruments are inserted to conduct the operation. If you require a hysterectomy but wish minimal disruption to your life during recovery, then our skilled practitioners can guide you through this modern approach.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

For some women who need a more comprehensive examination or if larger fibroids need removing alongside the uterus – an abdominal hysterectomy may be recommended by our specialists at Womens Health Group Chicago. The upside here is a more thorough exploration of your pelvic region thus allowing us greater attention and care toward potential underlying issues not visible via alternative treatments; though keep in mind that it does entail longer hospital stay as well as recovery period than laparoscopic method.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

Womens Health Group Chicago offers vaginal hysterectomies as another option for those requiring uterus removal. This type of procedure avoids visible scarring since it’s performed entirely through the vagina without any external incisions on abdomen whatsoever! It also typically entails shorter hospital stay and quicker recuperation periods compared to abdominal methodology yet achieve the same results.

Post-operative Care and Recovery

Naturally, our duty of care extends beyond the surgical procedure. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we believe in ensuring our patients receive optimal postoperative support for successful recovery. We monitor your healing process closely and offer comprehensive advice on activities, diet and medication aiding faster return to normalcy. Our specialized nursing staff is at hand around-the-clock, ready to assist you through every step of this journey taking pride in delivering exemplary patient experience.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

After a hysterectomy procedure, some women may encounter disruptions with their hormone levels leading to unexpected symptoms or conditions later in life such as osteoporosis or heart disease risk increase. Herein comes into play Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) which can help alleviate these issues by restoring crucial balance of female hormones including estrogen within your body. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we fully understand the potential challenges faced in aftermath hence offering HRT guidance aimed to optimize wellness & longevity long after surgery has concluded.

I’ve had the absolute best experience here at Women’s Health Group. I often get anxious when visiting doctors, but Lexi and the team here have always made me feel very safe and relaxed. I had to get some blood work done and they drew my blood on-site at the clinic, which was super convenient! I was encouraged to lay down and rest afterwards for as long as I needed, and I never felt rushed. I’ve also gotten an IUD here and it was a million times easier than I expected. Lexi is just fantastic and talked me through the whole process! The team here will do everything in their power to help you receive the care you need, and I highly recommend this clinic.
