Endometriosis in South Chicago

Endometriosis Services in South Chicago Illinois

Pain Management for Endometriosis

The Women’s Health Group Chicago is the premier destination for advanced and effective pain management strategies tailored to combat endometriosis. With a plethora of innovative and scientifically-backed techniques, our expert team in South Chicago works tirelessly to alleviate your discomfort. We understand that chronic pain can be debilitating, and we fervently believe every woman deserves relief so she may live comfortably.

Hormonal Therapies

Hormone therapy is one of the principal methods used at Womens Health Group Chicago in addressing endometriosis’ effects on comfort levels and fertility. Our evidence-based hormonal therapies work by lowering estrogen levels in the body, thereby reducing endometrial tissue growth and ensuring a decrease in symptoms. We pride ourselves on providing individualized treatment plans developed specifically from comprehensive diagnostic assessments conducted by our specialists.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Endometriosis can sometimes require medical intervention beyond just medicinal treatments; this is where minimally invasive surgical procedures come into play at our South Chicago clinic. Utilizing modern technology such as laparoscopy or robotic-assisted surgery, we aim to remove problematic endometrial tissue whilst minimizing recovery time along with potential complications — prioritizing patient safety without compromising effectiveness.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we are invested not only in your health but also your future family aspirations. For those struggling with infertility due to endometriosis, you needn’t feel hopeless; we offer dedicated fertility preservation services and infertility treatments designed around each woman’s unique needs – helping many achieve their dreams of starting families against all odds.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

Endometriosis can lead to challenging conditions like pelvic floor dysfunction – an area where our esteemed team steps up passionately. At our South Chicago facility, we offer pelvic floor therapy; facilities designed to strengthen the muscles supporting your uterus, bladder, and bowels. Therapies involve exercises and other strengthening measures which can significantly reduce pain while ensuring increased control over bowel movements.

Nutritional Counseling

Last but not least, Women’s Health Group Chicago provides nutritional counseling for women with endometriosis. Diet plays a significant role in managing symptoms of this condition – something our expert nutritionists understand well. Their counsel revolves around designing balanced dietary plans that can help manage inflammation whilst promoting overall health. Remember, eating right could be the key to unlocking a better quality of life!

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.
