The mission of the Department of Surgery at NorthShore University HealthSystem is first and foremost to provide outstanding care to patients suffering from diseases requiring surgical treatment. We endeavor to do so by developing excellence within comprehensive clinical programs employing state-of-the-art surgical procedures, provided in an environment that stimulates and enhances the educational opportunities of our students, residents and fellow surgeons, and conduct relevant clinical investigations and innovative basic science research.

NorthShore surgeons are on the forefront of new medical technology and procedures, and were the first in Illinois to use Intuitive Surgical’s da Vinci ® S™ Surgical System. da Vinci is a state-of-the-art robotic system designed to expand the surgeon’s capabilities, providing patients with a minimally invasive option for many complex procedures – for the very first time.  

Research also plays an important role for surgeons working to advance treatment options and outcomes. Please visit the Clinical Trials Center to learn about the clinical trials at NorthShore.
