Pain Management

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that the persistent pain associated with endometriosis can have a profound impact on your quality of life. That’s why our expert team offers comprehensive pain management strategies designed to alleviate symptoms and improve your daily functioning. Through an integrative approach combining medication, physical therapy, and relaxation techniques, we aim to effectively control and minimize discomfort in order for you to lead a more comfortable day-to-day life.

Hormonal Therapies

A centerpiece of our endometriosis healthcare protocol involves hormonal therapies. This form of treatment often successfully manages many symptoms associated with this condition. Our dedicated healthcare professionals will work closely with you to develop personalized hormonal therapeutic regimens which may include oral contraceptives or progestin therapy; all aimed at regulating hormone levels and reducing the severity of endometrial growths.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

When suffering from severe cases of endometriosis where medicinal attempts are not enough or when fertility is a concern – minimally invasive surgeries might be recommended as part of your treatment plan at the Womens Health Group in Chicago. These state-of-the-art procedures offer less scarring, shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times than traditional surgeries while aiming for maximum relief from your symptoms — increasing chances for natural conception after treatment.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment

Endometriosis can sometimes pose challenges on the path to motherhood but don’t lose heart – we are firmly dedicated towards helping those who wish to conceive through various fertility preservation treatments available at our clinic. We utilize cutting-edge reproductive technologies aiding women impacted by this condition, significantly improving their prospects of becoming pregnant both naturally or via assisted methods like IVF procedures while providing wholesome guidance throughout their journey.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

For certain patients dealing with Endometriosis, Pelvic Floor Therapy can be an extremely helpful tool in managing pelvic pain symptoms. At our clinic, specialized physical therapists teach techniques and exercises designed to improve pelvic floor dysfunction often contributing to endometriosis-associated pain. Our goal is to promote optimal muscle function, reduce discomfort and enhance your overall well-being.

Nutritional Counseling

At Womens Health Group Chicago we fully appreciate the power of nutrition in dealing with health issues like endometriosis; adopting an appropriate diet can help manage its symptoms effectively. Hence we offer individual nutritional counseling – exploring various dietary adjustments that could tremendously contribute towards easing your symptoms during pain flares up or even possibly slowing the progression of this disease.

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.
