Endometriosis Services in Uptown Illinois

Pain Management for Endometriosis

Struggling with the relentless discomfort associated with endometriosis can drastically affect your quality of life, but at Womens Health Group Chicago you don’t have to fight this battle alone. Our experienced team offers tailored plans for pain management that effectively target and alleviate your symptoms. Accepted pain-relieving medications are combined along with holistic methods such as heat therapy, physical therapy or lifestyle modifications like stress reduction techniques and exercise.

Hormonal Therapies

Our clinic employs cutting-edge hormonal therapies that can help maintain a balance in your body’s chemistry, easing the symptoms of endometriosis. Hormonal contraceptives have proven beneficial in slowing down endometrial growth and preventing new adhesions, offering patients increased relief over time. Every patient’s situation is unique, hence our therapeutic approach also varies accordingly to ensure you receive personalized care.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

For some patients suffering from endometriosis, minimally invasive surgery may be an effective treatment option when less invasive treatments fail to provide adequate relief. At The Women’s Health Group Chicago we specialize in state-of-the-art surgical interventions minimize post-operative downtime and maintain utmost safety during all procedures.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment

Understanding that fertility concerns often accompany an Endometriosis diagnosis, we offer comprehensive services dedicated to preserving your reproductive health while managing this condition. Rest assured; whether it involves egg freezing techniques or IVF treatments tailored specifically for women diagnosed with painful health conditions–we strive to make every woman’s dream of motherhood come true despite any hurdles on their way.

Pelvic Floor Therapy

At Womens Health Group Chicago, one aspect that sets us apart from other providers is our expertise in pelvic floor therapy — a targeted form of physiotherapy designed uniquely for females combating endometriosis. Our specialists adopt multidimensional approaches using specialized exercises and techniques to strengthen your pelvic muscle, which then alleviates the pain and discomfort associated with endometriosis.

Nutritional Counseling

Diet plays a vital role in managing symptoms of any chronic ailment like Endometriosis. We provide detailed nutritional counseling to guide our patients through the journey towards optimal health, instilling diet habits that can help reduce inflammatory responses and alleviate associated pains. With us, you’ll have access not just to a team of medical professionals but also dedicated nutritionists who understand women’s health inside out.

Dr.Mike is amazing. He listens, has solutions and follows through. I travel over an hour to see him and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

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.
