Strong surgical expertise, when you need it.

No one ever really feels prepared to face surgery. But at Metro Chicago Surgical Oncology, we want to do what we can to reduce your anxiety. MCSO has been providing state of the art, quality-focused and patient centered surgical services for over 30 years. 

When surgery appears to be the best course of action, we undertake comprehensive evaluations. Our physicians will then discuss with you all the issues at hand, always giving you the opportunity to take a primary role in deciding your best treatment choices. When a definitive surgical therapy is chosen, our surgeons prefer minimally invasive surgical options.
