Hysterectomy in Park Ridge

Hysterectomy Services in Park Ridge Illinois

Pre-Surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Womens Health Group Chicago, our team of professionals are compassionate health advocates who see great importance in pre-surgical counseling and evaluation. Our specialized staff ensures thorough consultations, designed to educate women about the potential procedures they might be facing – including hysterectomies. During this vital stage, we discuss what you can expect before, during and after surgery while addressing your personal concerns or questions.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy Services

Minimizing invasiveness is a priority at Womens Health Group Chicago when it comes to surgical procedures like laparoscopic hysterectomy. This advanced procedure uses small incisions in the abdomen through which a video camera and special surgical tools are inserted for a precise operation with minimal discomfort and speedy recovery time. With experts devoted to provide optimum care paired with state-of-the-art medical technology, rest assured that your wellbeing is our top concern.

Abdominal Hysterectomy Procedures

Despite modern advancements in health care services, there may be times where traditional abdominal hysterectomy could be more suitable based on individual needs. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we value offering diverse solutions for unique circumstances that come our way from Park Ridge residents. All of these underpinned by delivering patient-centered care marked by compassion, understanding and proficiency.

Vaginal Hysterectomy Options

Vaginal hysterectomy is also an offered service in our clinic as we aim to cover all possible procedures best suited for the specific need of each patient from Park Ridge area. Despite being less common due its applicability on certain cases only, vaginal hysterectomies offer many benefits such as shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries making them an attractive option when feasible.

Post-Operative Care & Recovery Support

Patient support doesn’t predetermine at any point during their experience with Womens Health Group Chicago. Our package includes comprehensive post-operative care and recovery support to ensure that the healing process is successful and comfortable. Extending beyond our skilled surgeons, our nursing team works tirelessly to guarantee you feel supported as soon as your procedure concludes.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Lastly, we recognize that hormonal imbalances can result in severe symptoms for some patients. Here at Women’s Health Group Chicago, we offer hormone replacement therapy to alleviate discomforts caused by a decrease in female hormones – which is often the case post-hysterectomy. Our tailored treatment plans are designed considering everything from personal medical history to current health status so you’ll receive the perfect balance of necessary hormones.

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.
