Surgeons at Rush have expertise in many areas, including pediatric surgery. They remove tumors, transplant organs, help people lose weight and correct endocrine problems — among other services.

For many patients, they perform minimally invasive procedures, which involve smaller incisions and less recovery time, compared to standard procedures. But while minimally invasive procedures offer many benefits, they are not right for everyone.

Surgeons at Rush have the expertise to help guide your choice — and the skills to perform virtually any procedure you’re likely to need.
