People from around the world travel to the University of Chicago Medicine for one reason: access to advanced treatments and knowledge.
This is where important medical advances are made. For instance, our doctors conducted the first successful cancer chemotherapy. They also performed the first bone marrow transplant and the first successful living donor liver transplant.
The University of Chicago Medicine provides both outpatient and inpatient care for almost every type of medical condition that affects adults and children. Here are some of our programs that have achieved national and international recognition:
- Children's Services
- Heart Services
- Ear, Nose, and Throat Problems
- Gynecological Problems
- Kidney Disease
- Respiratory Diseases
Our World-Class Doctors
Many of our doctors conduct research in addition to providing patient care. As a result, they have access to the latest therapies available. And, in some cases, they are the ones who are leading investigations into new treatments for cancer, arthritis, heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease and other diseases.
Our doctors often care for patients whom other doctors are unable to treat, including people with diseases that don't respond to medications. Our cancer program is ranked among the top in the nation. Here, a multidisciplinary team of physicians offers the latest treatment options for a full range of cancers.
University of Chicago surgeons perform procedures that few other surgeons in the world can. For instance, they lead the nation in minimally invasive surgery for children (surgeries that require only tiny cuts rather than long incisions). This enables children to have faster and less painful recoveries.
