Care Philosophy

The overall approach I take to helping patients manage a condition is to first understand its impact on the patient. So I will ask a lot of questions that have to do with why this concerns them, what is the impact it has on your lifestyle, what are you not able to do that you wish you could because of the condition being in the way. And that helps me design a treatment plan with the goals in mind of achieving what the patient is looking for. Otherwise, I'll be treating what I see is a concern without really approaching what it is about the condition that bothers the patient. A growing part of my practice is robotic surgery. Robotic surgery is essentially laparoscopic surgery - in that it's minimally invasive, using smaller incisions - but the instrument, rather than being held by the hand of the surgeon is held by a machine - a robot - and the surgeon controls the movements of the robot. This allows us to have much more refined motions, as well as ability to sew inside the abdomen much more accurately.

Dr. Brand is exceptional. I went to him when he was at Rush for a pilonidal cyst that had recurred after I had an open excision procedure done by a different surgeon. Dr. Brand performed the cleft lift procedure on me and I have not had a recurrence for 7 years now. He did such a good job I didn't even need to take one pain pill during my entire recovery. If you have a pilonidal cyst, don't mess around with any other doctor. Go to Dr. Brand and he will take care of you. Thank you Dr. Brand.
