At the University of Chicago Medicine, our surgical program is led by recognized leaders in endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery — the practice of performing surgical procedures through tiny cuts rather than long incisions.
Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) offers many benefits over traditional techniques, including:
- Less pain
- Shorter hospital stays
- Quicker return to normal activities
- Minimal scarring
- Reduced recovery time
- Less injury to tissue
From the smallest newborns to senior citizens, we are able to offer minimally invasive surgeries as well as minimally and noninvasive diagnostic procedures. University of Chicago surgeons perform MIS procedures on a daily basis. Our combined level of expertise is unrivaled in the Midwest.
