Northwestern Surgical Associates

Exceptional Care on the Magnificent Mile

Northwestern Surgical Associates (NSA) is a multispecialty surgical practice affiliated with Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Our surgeons have been in practice at and have been on the teaching faculty of Northwestern Memorial Hospital for over 50 years. NSA surgeons have repeatedly been named “Top Doctors” by Castle-Connoly, Chicago Magazine, and other professional organizations. We are committed to continuing our tradition of exceptional care for the residents of Chicago, the outlying suburbs, and beyond.

Our small group model allows us to focus on the individual patient whose well-being guides all decisions. This results in an expedited work-up and treatment of your surgical condition. We believe that an educated and empowered patient is the best partner in this process. Patients are treated with the same respect and compassion as a member of our family. Our staff prides itself on providing professional, personalized, and prompt service. We are highly visible and intensely involved in our patient's care from the preoperative consultation through postoperative visits.
