Pain Management for Endometriosis

At Womens Health Group Chicago, we know that dealing with endometriosis can be a painful and distressing experience. This is why our pain management program takes an empathetic and comprehensive approach towards reducing the discomfort attributed to endometriosis. Our dedicated team of professionals work tirelessly using state-of-the-art techniques in order to alleviate symptoms and help patients reclaim their lives from persistent pain.

Hormonal Therapies for Endometriosis

Hormonal therapy could potentially play a crucial role in managing your endometriosis-related pains. At Womens Health Group Chicago, we offer cutting-edge hormonal therapies that aim at regulating imbalances causing distress in the reproductive system. Our qualified practitioners are ready to guide you on how these unique treatments might help reduce inflammation, prevent new lesions and provide general relief for your symptoms.

Minimally Invasive Surgery for Endometriosis

For many women suffering from endometriosis, surgery becomes an essential choice when other treatments have not been successful. That’s where minimally invasive surgical interventions provided by Womens Health Group Chicago come into view. Our skilled surgeons use less intrusive methods aiming at removing or shrinking lesions without significantly affecting fertility potentials or surrounding tissues.

Fertility Preservation and Treatment with regard to Endometriosis.

We understand the concerns related to preserving fertility while coping with endometriosis. Fertility preservation can be complex but it doesn’t have to be frightening! The experts at Women’s Health Group Chicago are adept in personalized fertility treatment plans taking into account individual needs and circumstances providing high-quality care tailored specifically for each patient navigating through this phase of life.

Pelvic Floor Therapy as a solution for Endmetrioisis-related complaints.

One of our specialized services offered is pelvic floor physical therapy which primarily targets relieving endometriosis-associated pain. Our dedicated therapists at Women’s Health Group Chicago are trained to address and treat various conditions resulting from pelvic floor muscle dysfunction which often stems from endometriosis complications.

Nutritional Counseling for managing Endometriosis symptoms

Lastly, an integral part of the therapeutic approach we adopt at Womens Health Group Chicago is nutritional counseling. Research has shown nutrition can play a critical role in managing symptoms of endometriosis. We guide our patients on adopting diets that may help control symptoms while enhancing general well-being, empowering them with the knowledge required to make informed decisions regarding their nutrient intake.

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.
