The University of Illinois at Chicago Hospital and Clinic
The University Hospital serves as our primary teaching site during the residency program. The Medical Center includes a near-500-bed hospital as well as more than 40 primary care and specialty clinics. Its state-of- the-art facilities include a newly built Outpatient Care Center, a 3-Tesla MRI, two angiographic suites, endovascular hybrid operating room, and a dedicated neurosurgical unit that includes a 22-bed Neurosurgical ICU and a step-down floor. The Medical Center is a major referral center, attracting cases from around the world as well as from the entire U.S. Midwest region.
The Neurosurgery Department, in addition to serving the local community, attracts specialty cases including EC-IC bypass, complex aneurysms, skull base tumors, intractable epilepsy, pain management, and skull base and spinal cord tumors. Many community neurosurgeons throughout the Midwest refer their patients to us for specialized care. Our faculty includes recognized experts in cerebrovascular surgery, neuroendovascular procedures, neuro-oncology, spinal neurosurgery, peripheral nerve surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, pain management and movement disorders. The Department also collaborates with other services in the medical center to provide multi-disciplinary care for our patients, including stereotactic radiosurgery (Radiation Oncology), craniofacial surgery (The Craniofacial Center), pituitary and skull base tumors (ENT), stroke and critical care (Neurology).
