General Surgery

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
  • Appendectomy
  • Colon resection
  • Small bowel obstructions
  • Breast biopsies
  • Mastectomy
  • Thyroidectomy
  • Trauma surgery
  • Skin and soft tissue removals including melanoma
  • Laparoscopic surgery
  • Colonoscopy
  • Upper endoscopy
  • Bronchoscopy
