Our surgeons undergo specialized training to treat a variety of cancers and excel at minimizing pain, while also delivering fast and effective treatments customized to your personal preferences. Depending on the type and stage of the tumor, our surgeons offer a full range of options that will meet your needs and ensure the best possible outcome.
Our oncological surgeons perform the latest surgical treatments to provide the safest environment and fastest possible recovery for our patients. Wherever possible, they use leading-edge and minimally invasive alternatives to traditional cancer surgery procedures, including da Vinci® robotic surgery, which reduces pain, and the length of your hospital stay – so you can get home and on the road to recovery faster.
Common robotic procedures we perform include cystectomy (bladder cancer), prostatectomy (prostate cancer), colectomy (colorectal cancer) and partial nephrectomy (kidney cancer). For patients, this technology often offers a variety of benefits, including:
• Less pain and scarring
• Less risk of infection
• Less blood loss and fewer transfusions
• A shorter hospital stay
• Faster recovery
• Quicker return to normal activities
Our surgery centers are throughout the Chicago area, which means you can find skilled and compassionate care in a healing environment convenient to where you live and work. And your family members are always welcome at our cancer centers. They’ll find comfortable lounges, free coffee, educational materials, interpreters and caring staff who encourage questions and full involvement.
