Endometriosis Services in Riverside Illinois

Pain Management for Endometriosis

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we understand that endometriosis can cause extensive discomfort and pain. Our compassionate healthcare professionals are dedicated to mitigating these symptoms through targeted pain management strategies. Regardless of the severity of your condition, our approach is always tailored to suit the unique needs of each client. We use advanced techniques and medications aimed at reducing and controlling pain, helping you regain control over your life.

Hormonal Therapies for Endometriosis

Our clinic provides hormonal therapy options for managing endometriosis. Hormones play a crucial role in regulating the menstrual cycle and influencing endometrial growths; hence their modulation forms an essential part of a comprehensive treatment plan. With personalized hormonal therapies such as progestin therapy or gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists, we help regulate hormonal imbalances aiding in relieving symptoms associated with endometriosis.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

At Womens Health Group Chicago, minimally invasive surgical interventions stand at the forefront of our offerings for more severe cases of endometriosis where conventional treatments might not provide sufficient relief. Leveraging cutting-edge technology combined with vast clinical proficiency has helped us excel in performing procedures like laparoscopy effectively leaving minimal impact on healthy tissues surrounding affected areas.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment

Single-minded dedication towards safeguarding women’s reproductive health remains central to our ethos at Womens Health Group Chicago. Our fertility preservation solutions offer hope to those whose dream is parenthood but encounter constraints because of their battle with endometriosis. Using sophisticated diagnosis and therapeutic methods, we strive to maximize chances for natural conception while minimizing adverse effects on overall reproductive health caused by disease progression.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Pelvic floor therapy constitutes another aspect of our strategic approach towards enabling wellness in women suffering from endometriosis. Chronic pelvic pain, a common symptom related to the condition, stems from tightening or weakening of pelvic muscles. Our physical therapists specializing in this area provide therapeutic exercises and use various manual techniques to alleviate pain and restore functional movement.

Nutritional Counseling

We recognize nutrition as an integral component contributing to well-being while combating endometriosis at Womens Health Group Chicago. Dietary changes can play a key role in managing symptoms by decreasing inflammation and immune system response triggered by endometrial tissue deposits. Our expert dieticians work closely with you, devising personalized nutritional plans that not only fit your lifestyle but also enhance bodily resilience fighting against the disease onslaught.

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.
