Our Surgery Center
Palos Hills Surgery Center, a freestanding ambulatory surgery facility, is owned by Anton Fakhouri, MD and Gary Kronen, MD. The center opened in March 2014.
Featured in the nearly 5,000 square foot facility are two, large, modern operating rooms with state-of-the-science equipment and fully private pre-operative and recovery rooms. Our medical staff is comprised of surgeons associated with MidAmerica Orthopaedics: Anton Fakhouri, MD, Gary Kronen, MD, and James Moravek, MD. The center specializes in orthopaedics and plastic/reconstructive surgery.
Anesthesia services are provided by a group of anesthesiologists working as independent contractors whose practice is focused exclusively on outpatient surgery. The center has a transfer agreement with Christ Hospital Medical Center to accommodate patients who require overnight observation. Palos Hills Surgery Center is licensed by the Illinois Department of Public Health, is a provider in the Medicare Program, and is accredited by The Joint Commission.
Palos Hills Surgery Center is managed by the Midwest Surgical Management Group, a healthcare company with over 25 years experience in delivering high quality patient care and sustained patient satisfaction in outpatient surgery centers; it manages several facilities in the suburban Chicago area.
