Center for Pain Management
When you feel pain, it's hard to think about anything else. The first step to managing the pain is a diagnostic evaluation by a board-certified anesthesiologist to determine its cause and the best course of treatment. Once that's done, you'll work with a multi-disciplinary team trained in the most advanced healing techniques (physical and psychological therapies, relaxation treatments and medications).
Through a variety of new pain management techniques, such as spinal cord stimulation and implantable pain medication pumps, we can relieve — and even eliminate — pain.

Elmhurst Outpatient Surgery Center
Thanks to advancements in technology, many surgical procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. As a result, recovery time and stress are often reduced. Not only will you benefit from state-of-the-art technology and the latest advances in ambulatory surgery, but you'll also receive a level of care not often associated with outpatient facilities. The environment is welcoming. The staff is engaging. The experience is beyond your expectations. We accept all major insurance policies and perform a broad range of surgeries.
If you're a candidate for outpatient surgery, ask your surgeon to schedule your surgery at Elmhurst Outpatient Surgery Center. Visit www.eosc.org for more information.
If you're having digestive problems, get the care you deserve. The earlier you treat your condition, the better the results. Whatever your specific needs might be, our endoscopy team collaborates closely with you and your physician.
We remain at the forefront of technological advancements, using procedures such as small bowel capsule endoscopy to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal conditions. The procedure allows our skilled staff to noninvasively evaluate suspected diseases in the small intestine. During the procedure, a vitamin pill-sized capsule equipped with its own camera and light source is ingested. While the video capsule passes through the digestive tract, images are transmitted to a data recorder.
Sometimes gastroenterological conditions need surgical treatment. Our surgeons are trained in the latest techniques to treat many conditions, including gastroesophageal reflux disease, more commonly known as GERD. Meet one of our surgeons, Harry Siavelis, M.D., General Surgery or download a PDF about reversing reflux.
