At Advocate Christ Medical Center, patients have access to knowledgeable general surgeons who can treat any number of conditions, including gastrointestinal illnesses, hernia problems, breast diseases and thyroid conditions. As a tertiary and quaternary center for care, we see a large population of critically ill and elderly patients with complex cases and offer advanced technologies and treatments, making our staff especially adept at addressing virtually any medical situation.
Trauma and Critical Surgery
Our Level I trauma center is the busiest in Illinois, and is one of few centers in Chicagoland to feature surgical specialists on staff to handle any traumatic injury, from head and spine trauma to severe injuries throughout the body.
Our widely respected surgical oncologists have developed some of the most advanced therapies used today to treat tumors throughout the body, including a highly effective local resection technique for rectal tumors and the Whipple procedure, which is designed to treat exocrine cancers.
From radical resections to combined modality treatments, where chemotherapy is administered before or after surgery to intra-operative radiation therapy, patients are given the best chance for recovery at Advocate Christ Medical Center. This focus on high quality and interdisciplinary cancer care has earned surgeons at Christ Medical Center designation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
