About Us

SilverCross Hospital photoIf you’re considering surgery, you can count on the Midwest Institute for Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, IL – just 45 minutes southwest of Chicago including Midway and O’Hare airports.  We are performing complex procedures safely and with more precision than ever before. This means that our patients experience less pain and scarring, a shorter hospital stay, and recover quickly.

With three (3) da Vinci® surgical robots – including the latest da Vinci XI®, we perform the most robotic surgical procedures, hysterectomies, and colorectal procedures in the Chicago metropolitan area.  And, we are one of the Top 3 robotic surgery centers in the Midwest with more than 5,000 procedures.

The Midwest Institute for Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital is the only facility in the Will County to offer Mako™ robotic-arm assisted surgery for partial knee and total hip replacement for adults living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis.  This new technology helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of a patient’s implant.

What’s more, Silver Cross is the first hospital in Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky to offer robotic spine surgery with navigation through the Globus ExcelsiusGPS system.

The Institute is also home to some of the most experienced robotic surgeons in the region and nation.  Several are pioneers in their field mentoring other surgeons across the 50 states and around the world in advanced colorectal, gynecological, and hernia repair and gallbladder removal robotic techniques. Others help design the implants used during joint replacement surgery.

These experts even perform complex procedures such as Single-Site® Hysterectomy and Cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) through one tiny incision in the belly button for virtually scar-less results.

The Institute’s comprehensive team of robotic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and technicians have safely performed over 5,000 robotic procedures with complications, conversion to open technique, and surgical site infection rates well below the national average.  And, our patients consistently rate us in the Top 10% in the nation for patient satisfaction.

You can feel confident that you are receiving the best care possible, as Silver Cross Hospital has received:

Or if you prefer, our concierge can assist you and your family in locating hotels and other amenities nearby the hospital or anything else during your stay.

If follow-up care and rehabilitation is needed,  patients benefit from partnerships with The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross Hospital, The University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital and Silver Cross Home Health.
