Advanced Technology for Advanced Treatments

UI Health is the only academic medical center in Chicago to utilize the Medrobotics Flex Robotic System for minimally invasive head and neck surgical procedures. The Flex System is designed to allow procedures in parts of the body that previously were difficult or impossible to reach. It can navigate a nearly 180-degree path around anatomy to reach a surgical target, with articulating instruments that extend to perform procedures. These advancements mean that our doctors can provide more minimally invasive surgical treatments, so more patients can receive the treatment they need.
