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 personal standards. Whether a patient is undergoing a procedure for the treatment of breast cancer, varicose veins, or weight loss surgery, at our Chicago, Illinois treatment facility, we treat every patient with concern, warmth, 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 happiness can only be achieved if patients understand the facts about 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 individual’s medical and emotional needs and concerns in a thoughtful, compassionate manner. For patients undergoing weight loss surgery at our Chicago-area surgical practice, we provide weekly 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 final post-operative examination, our friendly and professional surgeons and staff are with you every step of the way until you make a complete recovery.
