Hysterectomy in West Garfield Park

Hysterectomy Services in West Garfield Park Illinois

Pre-surgical Counseling and Evaluation

At Women’s Health Group Chicago, we understand that choosing to undergo a hysterectomy is a significant decision. Our comprehensive pre-surgical counseling and evaluation services are designed to ensure you have all the information needed to make informed decisions about your health. These sessions cover detailed discussions about the surgical procedure, possible risks, benefits, alternatives, and what steps should be taken before surgery for optimal outcomes.

Laparoscopic Hysterectomy

Our team at Women’s Health Group Chicago specializes in performing Laparoscopic Hysterectomies – an advanced form of minimally invasive surgery that has revolutionized how hysterectomies are conducted. This technique uses small incisions instead of large ones traditionally made during open surgeries which result in faster recovery times, less post-operative discomfort and shorter hospital stays.

Abdominal Hysterectomy

Abdominal Hysterectomy is another service we provide proficiently at Womens Health Group Chicago. It’s often recommended when other treatments aren’t working or it’s impossible to examine the total size and shape of the uterus through laparoscopy. The procedure involves removing the uterus through an incision in your lower abdomen ensuring meticulous care to minimize any potential complications.

Vaginal Hysterectomy

For those residing around West Garfield Park seeking medical attention relating hysterectomy procedures can depend on our expertise specifically for Vaginal Hysterectomies as well. This type of operation eliminates need for abdominal incisions thus reducing scarring along with aiding quicker recovery compared to conventional methods while maintaining equally effective results.

Post-operative Care & Recovery

Every woman who entrusts her care with us receives dedicated support even after her surgical process ends. We promote holistic recovery from any form of hysterectomy with personalized post-surgery care plans encompassing pain management, post-operative physiotherapy if required, and regular follow-ups to monitor recovery progress.

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Lastly but importantly, Women’s Health Group Chicago offers Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Hysterectomy can dramatically alter the hormonal balance in a woman’s body leading to potential side effects. Our specialists effectively utilize HRT as a countermeasure to help manage those changes and ensure our patients’ wellbeing improves continuously after surgery.

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.
