The Cancer Institute at Advocate Condell continues our commitment to provide the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment options for patients diagnosed with cancer. We are committed to providing cancer patients with the most advanced radiation, infusion, and supporting treatments available, delivered with a “whole person” approach to patient care. Skilled and dedicated physicians, nurses, therapists, and technicians are the reason why Advocate Condell Cancer Institute patients experience outstanding care.
Advocate Condell is known for superior diagnostic and surgical interventions for many types of cancer. Dedicated surgeons perform complex oncology surgeries for cancers of the breast, endometrium and cervix, prostate, lung, head and neck, brain and spinal cord, as well as general surgery. Many of these surgeries can be performed with minimal disruption of normal tissue by utilizing the DaVinci Si Surgical System.
