Northwestern Surgical Associates is a multispecialty surgical practice affiliated with Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Our surgeons have been in practice at and have been on the teaching faculty of Northwestern Memorial Hospital for over 50 years. We work intimately with surgical residents and medical students, and also participate in the academic life of Northwestern Medicine. At the same time, we are a private practice serving the vibrant Magnificent Mile of downtown Chicago. Our group currently consists of five board-certified general surgeons. Three of our surgeons have additional fellowship training in minimally-invasive surgery. One our surgeons, Steven J Stryker, is a nationally-renowned colorectal surgeon, who was one of the first to perform laparoscopic colon resections and sphincter-sparing surgery for rectal cancer in Chicago. We are seeking a colorectal surgeon to build upon our rich tradition of surgical excellence. The ability to be mentored by Dr. Stryker and to transition into his practice after his retirement is an attractive feature of this position. Our group provides the opportunity to develop a practice tailored to the candidate’s interests. An interest in benign anorectal disease and colonoscopy is a particular bonus. The willingness and interest in performing general surgery is also a requirement. A strong referral network is well-established.
