minimally invasive surgery

A truly advanced neurological program is often measured by the range of treatments offered and the experience of its physicians. At Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, patients have access to breakthrough technologies provided by some of the physicians who have pioneered them.

In addition to traditional open surgery, our physicians are experts in minimally invasive, or nonsurgical, interventions. Patients who are candidates for these procedures often rehabilitate and recover faster with no incisions to care for.

Patients with the following conditions may benefit from minimally invasive surgery:

Our physicians have extensive experience performing innovative nonsurgical techniques, such as endovascular embolization and angioplasty to treat aneurysms and other malformations, as well as kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty to care for spinal fractures.

To make an initial appointment, consultation, a second opinion or to refer a patient to the Neurosciences Institute at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, please call us at 1.800.3.ADVOCATE (1.800.323.8622).
