Services and Treatment Options

Specialties and Departments menu

To find information about our services and treatment options, start with the Specialties and Departments menu. It's the first link in the navigation on the left of every page. Browse the list of specialties or departments, and select the topic that most closely matches the condition for which you seek care. On most pages, we also provide links to information about related services and resources. If you're looking for information about a pediatric health condition, please browse by specialty on the Comer Children's Hospital website.

General Education Information

Online Library link

For general background information about a variety of health conditions, please visit the Online Library.

Being Part of the Team

Our doctors and nurses want to serve as resources for you, helping you to understand your condition and your treatment options. You may find it helpful to bring a list of questions to your appointment. Newly diagnosed patients, in particular, often bring a family member or friend to help ask questions and remember new information. Some patients even bring a tape recorder, an iPod, or some other device to record important details.
