Procedures Offered

The board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeons at Weiss, both in private practice and from The University of Chicago Medicine, provide a wide range of surgical procedures to help you repair, restore or improve your face, skin, breasts, trunk and extremities. Some of these procedures include breast surgery, body contouring and hand reconstruction. 

Breast Surgery

Breast surgery includes post-mastectomy reconstruction, breast reduction, correction of congenital breast abnormalities, breast lifts and augmentation. Weiss provides a comprehensive women’s program for your breast care and offers many options for the treatment of breast cancer and reconstruction.

Body Contouring and Breast Augmentation

The plastic and reconstructive doctors specialize in body contouring and breast augmentation after massive weight loss (lifts and liposuction). Body contouring, including liposuction, is employed to properly shape the abdomen, buttocks, hips, arms, thighs and breasts after weight loss. After a surgical consultation, we help you choose which plastic surgery option is best for you.

Hand Surgery

Our hand surgeons treat a broad spectrum of afflictions, from congenital abnormalities to traumatic injuries. This includes a variety of work-related injuries such as fractures, amputations, tendon injuries and nerve injuries. University of Chicago surgeon Dr. Lawrence Zachary and his colleagues have had great success in treating Raynaud’s Phenomenon with new and innovative procedures.

Orthopedic Surgery

Dr. Zachary also is involved in the care of patients with orthopedic surgeons. He works closely with the joint replacement surgeons who specialize in the treatment of patients with previously infected knee or hip prostheses. He is involved in the soft tissue coverage of the knee or hip. He also specializes in the excision of neuromas post knee surgery.

Gender Confirmation Surgery

Loren S. Schechter, M.D., is the Director of the Center for Gender Confirmation Surgery at Weiss Memorial Hospital. He serves on the board of The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), helped to author the 7th Edition of The Standards of Care, and serves as co-lead for the Surgery and Post-Operative Care section of the 8th Edition of The Standards of Care.
