Hysterectomy Services in West Englewood Illinois

Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At the Women’s Health Group Chicago, we prioritize your overall well-being before any procedure. We offer comprehensive pre-surgical counseling and evaluation for those considering a hysterectomy, ensuring you are fully informed about all aspects of the surgery. Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals works tirelessly to ensure that each patient receives personalized care tailored to their unique needs. During these sessions, we discuss the purpose, process, risks and benefits attached to this life-changing decision.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Our experienced surgeons at Women’s Health Group Chicago employ state-of-the-art laparoscopic surgical techniques when performing a hysterectomy. This minimally invasive method involves making small incisions in the abdomen through which telescopic instruments can be used. The use of such an approach increases precision while minimizing scarring along with reducing recovery durations post-surgery.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

Abdominal Hysterectomy is another among our wide range of gynecological services offered to women in West Englewood. Unlike Laparoscopic surgeries, an abdominal hysterectomy entails removing the uterus via a larger incision in the lower abdomen facilitating access to the internal organs directly during surgery providing greater visibility leading to enhanced execution accuracy if complex anatomical situations or pathology demand it.

Vaginal Hysterecomy

Another type of service provided by Womens Health Group Chicago includes vaginal hysteretomy where removal of uterus is done through vagina hence eliminating need for external cuts or scars on body.This less-invasive technique also allows for quicker healing times and reduces chances post-operative complications.It particularly preferred in cases wherein uterine conditions encountered are not overly complicated or simply do not have enlarged size factor concerns

Post-operative Care and Recovery

At Womens Health Group Chicago, our concern for patients doesn’t end after the surgery is completed. A crucial part of our comprehensive care package includes top-tier post-operative assistance focusing on your rapid and uneventful recovery. We closely monitor your progress while encouraging activities that will enable you to resume a routine lifestyle at the earliest.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

In circumstances where women may have had their ovaries removed as part of a total hysterectomy, we offer Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). At Womens Health Group Chicago, our experienced team works with each patient to form an individualized plan for HRT which takes into account medical history, symptoms along with benefits and risks related to therapy.

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.
