Northwestern Memorial Hospital
Dr. Chandler is an internationally renowned practitioner of endoscopic skull base surgery. He currently has thousands of successful brain tumor operations under his belt. His specialty, endoscopic skull base surgery, is a minimally invasive way to operate on the brain that typically results in quicker recovery time. He is currently helping to pioneer the use of state of the art 3D glasses and tiny microscopes to remove tumors through the nasal cavity. This will result in minimal scarring. He is currently the co-director of Northwestern’s Brain Tumor Institute and the director of surgery at Northwestern Memorial.
University of Chicago Medical Center
Michael Bishop is the leader of the U of C Medicine’s outpatient blood and bone marrow stem cell transplant unit. This unit makes it possible to eliminate isolating and overly long stays in the hospital for their cancer patients. The main reason this unit was developed, was to allow patients to be treated and return home to their families in a timely manner. According to Dr. Bishop, “When you’re getting up and moving around, the lungs are more expanded, the oxygenation is better, and organs perform better. The No. 1 cause of death after transplantation is recurrence of disease. Why does one patient go on to get to spend time with her kids, and the other one, nine months later, her disease comes back? Understanding the biology—this has been the true focus of my career.”
Dr. Ahmad is a renowned doctor that specializes in Radiology and Cosmetic Surgery. He is also known as one who can perform the best facelift surgery in Franklin Park, IL and the best breast augmentation chicago. Dr. Ahmad achieves significant results with his patients who come to him looking to rejuvenate and refresh their appearance. Whether due to aging or other disfiguring incidents, he is sure to meet their needs.
Rush University Medical Center
In the United States, women only represent about a third of all physicians. That number falls even more drastically when it comes on to Cardiology. Only 10% of cardiologists in the US are female. This information comes from a study conducted by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This comes at a start contrast when you look closely at the number one killer of women—heart disease. Annabelle Volgman, one of the few female cardiologists, believes that a woman’s touch is necessary to deal with the devastating effects heart disease can have. It is considered deadlier than all the different types of cancer combined. She is the head of the Rush Heart Center for women. This center is the first of its kind in Chicago and opened its doors in 2003. According to Dr. Volgman, since opening its doors, the practitioners at Rush have learned a significant amount of information regarding heart disease and its effect on women. The disease has different effects on women that it does men. Although she is quite hopeful as the number of heart disease patients (both male and female) has fallen quite a bit over recent years.
