Advanced Technology for Advanced Treatments
UI Health is the only academic medical center in Chicago to utilize minimally invasive head and neck surgical procedures. Our advanced treatments are designed to allow procedures in parts of the body that previously were difficult or impossible to reach. We can navigate a nearly 180-degree path around anatomy to reach a surgical target, with articulating instruments that extend to perform procedures. These advancements mean that our doctors can provide more minimally invasive surgical treatments, so more patients can receive the treatment they need.
