Patient Information

At Suburban Surgical Care Specialists/Kane Center, our surgeons provide every patient with surgical care that conforms to the most exacting medical and surgical standards. Whether a patient is undergoing breast cancer surgery, colon cancer surgery, gallbladder removal, weight loss surgery or one of the many other procedures we perform at our Chicago-area hospitals, we treat every patient with expertise, care and dignity.

Our Patient Education Philosophy

As health care providers, our surgeons are dedicated to providing knowledge and a genuine sense of well-being to each of our patients. We believe satisfactory results can be achieved as patients become knowledgeable regarding their surgery. We work hard to make sure our patients are well-informed and comfortable with their choices.

A Policy of Compassionate Care

Throughout the surgical process, our primary goal is to address each patient’s medical and emotional needs and concerns in a thoughtful, compassionate manner. For patients undergoing weight loss surgery, we provide weekly bariatric surgery support groups addressing a broad range of topics, including self-image and self-esteem, eating patterns and behaviors, and even stress management. For all of our patients, we are especially thorough in providing conscientious follow-up care. From the first consultation to your post-operative examination, our friendly and professional surgeons, physician assistants and other staff members are with you every step of the way.

Preparing for Your Initial Consultation

The following sections are key to helping you prepare for an initial consultation regarding weight loss surgery or another procedure. They may also be useful in assisting you with making preparations for additional visits that may follow. You are encouraged to look over these sections in the days and weeks prior to surgery. For your convenience, we have provided both general and detailed information about our practice. In the following sections you can find everything, from our office hours to the insurance providers we accept. We are very dedicated to our patients and work hard to ensure each patient receives the surgical and medical care he or she deserves. We look forward to meeting you when you visit one of our bariatric surgery office locations in Hoffman Estates and Elk Grove Village.
