Personalized gynecologic surgery in Chicagoland

Gynecologists at Ascension Illinois specialize in advanced surgical treatments for women with endometriosis, gynecologic cancers and uterine prolapse.

You can talk to your gynecologist about anything. At Ascension Illinois, our gynecologists, pelvic floor specialists, urogynecologists and gynecologic oncologists start by listening to understand you and the symptoms you are experiencing. Your doctor is always ready to answer your questions — big and small. If surgery is something you are considering or is recommended as part of your care plan, your doctor will talk through options and risks. Some gynecologists perform gynecologic surgery. Gynecologic surgery is a treatment option for many conditions affecting the uterus, ovaries, cervix, fallopian tubes and vagina.

Your gynecology care team is committed to providing you with the most advanced treatment options, and a personalized, compassionate surgery and recovery plan. Your doctor may provide surgical care for:

  • Cervical and gynecological cancers
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Endometriosis
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Incontinence (urinary and fecal)
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Organ prolapse

Advanced surgical care for gynecologic conditions

Gynecologists at Ascension Illinois are highly trained in innovative surgical approaches using robotic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and other image-guided minimally invasive techniques. Compared with traditional surgery, minimally invasive techniques may mean smaller incisions, less pain, a lower risk of complications and help shorten your recovery. If your surgery may impact your ability to have children, such as if hysterectomy is recommended as part of your care, you and your doctor will discuss all of your options and what they mean for you. Together, we'll develop a care plan that is right for you.
