Surgical Services in the Southern Suburbs
At Northwestern Medicine Palos Hospital, your surgical team will include highly skilled, specially trained medical professionals, including your surgeon, registered nurses, certified technologists, and anesthesiologists.
Northwestern Medicine Palos Hospital has 14 state-of-the-art operating suites. These house all the necessary equipment to perform a variety of inpatient and outpatient procedures. The surgical area also includes four endoscopy suites and a minor surgery room. Additionally, an interventional radiology suite offers advanced imaging technologies within a surgical suite for interventional radiological, vascular, cardiac and orthopaedic procedures. The dual-procedure operating suite can accommodate both open and closed surgical procedures.
We offer a robust robotic-assisted surgery program. With three da Vinci® surgical robots available, surgeons can perform delicate procedures in small spaces within the body. This system enables the use of minimally invasive techniques, which can lead to:
- Shorter hospital stays
- Faster recovery
- Less scarring
- Lower risk of complications
Northwestern Medicine Outpatient Surgery
Northwestern Medicine Outpatient Surgery allows care teams to offer a more efficient and comfortable experience for both patients and their families. The facility meets the needs of all patients undergoing any invasive procedure, whether it is a surgical, interventional radiology or endoscopy procedure.
Inpatients and outpatients also receive pre-procedure care within this area.
After their procedure, patients go to the recovery area. From there:
- Inpatients return to their private room to continue healing
- Outpatients return to the Outpatient Surgery area to prepare to go home through a private discharge door, or up to a hospital room for additional care
