Welcome to the Chicago Surgical Society

Welcome to another year of great presentations at Chicago Surgical Society. The year started on October 1, 2020 with the Dr Margo Shoup's Presidential lecture and new member induction. On November 5 we had a new program to highlight case discussions involving COVID-19.

On February 4, 2021 we presented new surgical devices.  We will also have the Illinois Surgical Conference on April 24. October 7, 2021 will be our 2021 Presidential lecture and business meeting.
