Endometriosis in Palos Hills

Endometriosis Services in Palos Hills Illinois

Pain Management

At Womens Health Group Chicago, our expert team understands the debilitating effects of endometriosis. Pain management is an essential part of dealing with this condition which extends beyond menstrual discomfort. By employing a combination of medication and lifestyle changes, our specialists help you manage pain effectively by focusing on your overall wellbeing rather than just treating symptoms in isolation.

Hormonal Therapies

Due to the hormonal nature of endometriosis, hormonal therapy is often a vital aspect of treatment at Womens Health Group Chicago. These therapies work by reducing estrogen levels in the body, slowing down endometrial growth and offering some relief from associated pain and discomfort. Our experienced clinicians determine each patient’s suitability for these treatments based on their unique circumstances and health needs.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

If your symptoms persist despite non-surgical interventions or if fertility preservation is a concern, minimally invasive surgeries are available as options here at Womens Health Group Chicago. Our skilled surgeons utilize cutting-edge laparoscopic procedures aimed at removing or destroying areas affected by endometriotic tissues. This ensures quicker recovery times compared to traditional surgical methods thereby ensuring minimal disruption to your daily life.

Fertility Preservation & Treatment

Endometriosis can interfere with women’s natural ability to conceive; however, several techniques for fertility preservation and enhancement exist at our clinic in Palos Hills area. From evaluating ovarian reserve through hormone testing to reviewing structural abnormalities using ultrasound imaging — we provide comprehensive services that protect your future family-building possibilities while managing the impacts of endometriosis on your system.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Improving pelvic floor muscle function plays an important role in relieving some types of pain associated with endometriosis. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our dedicated therapists use effective techniques like relaxation exercises, manual therapy, or biofeedback to help alleviate pain and improve your quality of life.

Nutritional Counseling

Proper nutrition is fundamental in managing symptoms as well as overall health. Endometriosis can cause changes in appetite or gastrointestinal distress making balanced diet a challenge for those affected by this condition. Our registered dietitian takes into account the unique needs of each patient when creating individualized dietary plans, not only to combat endometriosis but also promote general wellness. Women Health Group Chicago believes that every woman has the right to holistic healthcare — balancing physical comfort with emotional wellbeing.

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.
