Chicago Health Medical Group general surgeons perform a wide range of procedures using many of the latest surgical techniques to treat a variety of health problems. Many surgeries are performed with minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopic surgery.
Unlike open surgery, which requires a long incision, minimally invasive procedures are performed through one or more short incisions. For most patients, this leads to significantly less post-operative pain, a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and, in some cases, a better overall outcome. These operations often require only an overnight hospital stay.
With a specialized knowledge and experience relating to the diagnosis, preoperative, operative and postoperative management of your care, our general surgeons perform a variety of procedures, including (but not limited to):
- Hernia repair -inguinal, umbilical, ventral, incisional
- Gallbladder surgery
- Colon resection
- Small bowel obstructions
- Breast biopsies
- Trauma surgery
- Skin and soft tissue removals including melanoma
- Laparoscopic surgery
- Upper endoscopy
