Dr. Enrico Benedetti

It is my pleasure to welcome you to The Department of Surgery at the University of Illinois Chicago. The department is comprised of seven surgical divisions, covering all fields of modern surgery. We are home to the largest program in non-urological robotic surgery in the world, among the top five islet transplant programs in the country and, the single most active living donor, liver-bowel transplant program, worldwide.

The faculty is dedicated to clinical as well as academic excellence. Our educational programs include fully accredited residencies in Surgery as well as Plastic, Reconstructive, and Cosmetic Surgery. We have accredited fellowships in cardiothoracic, colon and rectal, minimally invasive and bariatric and, transplant surgery.

Our research expenditures were over $7.5 million in 2007.

Please do not hesitate to contact me directly for any questions related to the Department of Surgery. Thank you for visiting our site.
