Hormonal balance plays a crucial role in managing symptoms of endometriosis. At Women’s Health Group Chicago, our professionals leverage modern hormonal therapies aimed at reducing inflammation and lessening discomfort caused by hormone imbalance. Our specialists carefully monitor your response to these treatments and modify the approach as needed to optimize results and minimize any potential side effects.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

If you’re clutching onto normalcy despite severe pain from endometriosis that isn’t responding well enough to medication, then minimally invasive surgical intervention might be an option worth exploring. We offer laparoscopic surgery options that allow for shorter recovery periods compared to traditional procedures. With state-of-the-art equipment treatment approaches, we make treating endometriosis safer and more efficient than ever before.

Many women diagnosed with endometriosis find concerns around fertility top their list of worries. That’s why Women’s Health Group Chicago offers comprehensive services mapping out robust plans specially designed for fertility preservation alongside effective treatment structures for handling endometriosis without compromising pregnancy chances in future years.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

The chronic inflammatory effect of endometrisis could result in muscle spasms or weakness on pelvic floor musles which further heightens distressing symptoms like urinary/fecal inconsistence or sexual pain. Our customizable pelvic floor therapy program targets these issues effectively by helping you learn how to control, strengthen and relax this crucial group of muscles.

Nutritional Counseling for Endometriosis

Dietary modifications can play pivotal role in managing endometriosis symptoms. That’s why we offer nutritional counseling as part of our holistic approach to treating endometriosis. Our registered dieticians create personalized plans that help reduce inflammation, manage your weight, balance hormones while ensuring a nutrient-rich intake tailored uniquely to combat not only symptoms but overall wellness too.

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.
