Easier Access to Surgical Oncology Expertise
For many people with cancer, surgery can be a promising treatment on the path toward healing. Cancer surgeries can be extremely complex, though, so it’s important to find a surgeon and hospital you trust.

UChicago Medicine's cancer program ranks among the top in the nation, and their surgeons are recognized for their comprehensive knowledge, and for using sophisticated techniques and technologies to provide the best possible outcomes.
With access to these surgeons at UChicago Medicine AdventHealth hospitals in Chicago’s western suburbs, you can rest assured that you’ll receive expert-level surgical care.

Preventive Care With Cancer Screenings
The earlier we catch cancer, the better we can treat it. As part of preventive care, screenings identify the most common types of cancer in the early stages or before they have a chance to take hold. Learn more and schedule a screening today to safeguard your health.
- Breast Cancer Screening
- Colon Cancer Screening
- Genetic Cancer High-Risk Assessment
- Lung Cancer Screenings
- Skin Cancer Screenings
Our nationally accredited breast care program offers breast cancer screening mammograms that use the most advanced technology available to check for cancer in people who have no signs or symptoms of the disease.
In addition to full colonoscopies, we offer no-cost genetic testing for colon cancer to help uncover hereditary risks. The Affordable Care Act mandates that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and most health insurance plans cover preventive tests, including colonoscopies.
We offer genetic cancer assessments for high-risk individuals. These assessments screen for multiple types of hereditary cancers, including breast, ovarian, colon, pancreatic, melanoma and endocrine cancers.
If you are a current or former smoker, a quick and easy computed tomography (CT) lung cancer screening can save your life. We offer low-dose CT scans, the gold standard in detecting early-stage lung cancer.
Catching skin cancer early helps ensure the best chance for a full recovery. Our comprehensive skin cancer screenings include minimally invasive tissue biopsies and same-day test results when possible.
Nationally Ranked and Accredited Cancer Care
We’ve achieved these accreditations and affiliations because of our commitment to our patients and our belief in the healing power of whole-person care:
- Commission on Cancer Accreditation, American College of Surgeons
- National Accreditation Program from Breast Cancer Centers (NAPBC)
- Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification, American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)
Improving Outcomes for More Cancer Patients
Each year, we provide data on all reportable cancers we treat to a Certified Tumor Registrar. It’s how we fulfill mandatory requirements set by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. This is called a cancer registry, and it's vital to informing research efforts and improving treatment outcomes for cancer patients across the country.
The information we share is limited to health status, recent exam dates and your current doctor. In accordance with Illinois State Law and the Illinois State Center Registry policy, your medical history and follow-up information is kept in complete confidence.
Through this registry, we're able to offer improved outcomes for others with your diagnosis and better lifetime support for you. Because no matter how long it's been since you were diagnosed, we'll always care for you.
