Rush General Surgery

Surgical expertise, close to home

The general surgery team at Rush University Surgeons’ location in Oak Park provide comprehensive consultative, diagnostic and surgical care services. They have expertise in treating complex conditions and in using the latest minimally invasive techniques, which require smaller incisions and result in less recovery time.

Our surgeons divide their time between Oak Park and Rush’s Chicago campus — so even if you have procedures at Rush University Medical Center, you can schedule follow-up appointments in Oak Park for your convenience.

The close collaboration between Rush locations also means that our patients have access to the groundbreaking clinical research taking place at Rush University Medical Center, which leads to improvements not only in surgical techniques, but in patients’ recovery and quality of life after surgery. For example, Rush surgeons are pioneers in using an enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) program that helps patients prep for surgery, manages their pain more effectively and makes post-surgical recovery more comfortable.
