General Surgery

The General Surgery Section at the University of Chicago focuses on a variety of diseases and complex conditions. Our general surgeons focus on a variety of complex problems that can be treated with surgery.

Multidisciplinary Approach - Our surgeons tailor treatment to a patient's individual needs. Before deciding on surgery, University of Chicago physicians from various disciplines consider the full range of treatment options.

We offer innovative surgical procedures--including experimental treatments--for a wide area of needs. Whenever possible, our surgeons use minimally invasive diagnostic and surgical techniques. Minimally invasive procedures offer several benefits when compared to conventional surgery, including: less pain, faster recovery, less scarring, less injury to tissue, shorter hospital stays.
