  • Specialty Surgeons from Orthopedics, Pain Management, Urology, Pain Management, ENT, Pediatric Dentistry, and Podiatry routinely provide services at our center.
  • Anesthesia services are provided by Midwest Anesthesia Partners (MAP) from Lutheran General Hospital.
  • All Nurses are ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) trained and many are PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) trained and are committed to a high level of care for our patients.
  • Most insurance plans are accepted, but we will verify coverage prior to any surgery and discuss how best to handle your insurance needs with you personally.
