Finally, Your Belly Button Has a Purpose

Minimally Invasive Surgery at Elmbrook Memorial

It’s what you won’t see that makes single site surgery at Wheaton Franciscan - Elmbrook Memorial Campus so revolutionary.

By performing robotic surgery with just one tiny incision at your belly button, we reduce recovery times and risk of complications, and eliminate visible scars.
