Routine Gynecological Exams

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we firmly believe that preventive care is the cornerstone of women’s health. Our routine gynecological exams are a component of this philosophy. As part of these periodic check-ups, our seasoned team inspects and analyzes your overall reproductive health – including breast examinations and Pap smear tests – to detect any signs or symptoms pointing towards potential health issues. It’s through such consistent monitoring and evaluation that we can proactively diagnose conditions like cancers in their earliest stages and implement effective treatment plans for optimum recovery.

Pregnancy Care and Delivery

Expecting mothers from Westchester need not look elsewhere for comprehensive pregnancy care coupled with expert delivery services. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we take great pride in creating personalized prenatal paths tailored to accommodate individual needs during all stages of pregnancy – ensuring both mother’s wellbeing as well as the infant’s safe arrival into this world. We also provide round-the-clock support post-delivery to facilitate a smooth transition period for new mothers adjusting to the demands of parenthood.

Menopause Management

Experiencing menopause should never be synonymous with an infirm lifestyle; a belief we stand by at Womens Health Group Chicago where you’ll find proficient menopause management solutions curated individually according to your unique circumstances. Hot flashes, mood swings or sleeping disorders – whatever your concern might be, our experts adopt holistic approaches designed around promoting balanced living minimizing disruptions often accompanied by these hormonal transitions.

Gynecological Surgeries

In certain instances when medications aren’t sufficiently enough, surgical intervention becomes necessary for definitive resolution of gynaecologic complaints. Our center hosts some of the most skilled surgeons who excel at performing minor as well as complex surgeries related to womens’ reproductive health systems – whether it’s removal procedures like hysterectomies or more conservative alternatives involving minimum tissue disturbance like endometrial ablations.

Cancer Screenings

Timely screenings play a vital role in preventing fatal complications down the road via early detection of physiological abnormalities. At Womens Health Group Chicago, our advanced cancer screening methods focus on conducting comprehensive evaluations that can accurately identify evidence pertaining to potential forms of cancers prevalent within female reproductive systems including cervical and ovarian types.

Sexual Health and Reproductive Counseling

Understanding sexual health intimately is key for healthy living; unfortunately it’s often clouded around societal taboos against open discussions. We aim to change this paradigm at Womens Health Group Chicago by offering confidential counseling services dealing with every aspect associated with womens’ reproductive architecture starting from menstrual irregularities right up to family planning solutions ended towards empowering you with knowledge needed for making well-informed decisions about your bodily choices.

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.
