Dr. Sharpless' bio
This content was provided by Dr. Sharpless "Dr. Sharpless has been a board certified surgeon since 1994 with both the American College of Surgery and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Following the completion of her specialty fellowship training at the University of Illinois, she entered private practice as a surgical oncologist (cancer surgeon), first in group practice and now as a solo practitioner. She is dedicated to giving high-quality, compassionate care to each patient she serves. Since 1998, she had provided cancer surgery consultations to patients in the Chicagoland area, surrounding states and from across the country. She performs surgery at Advocate Condell Medical Center and does small procedures out of her Lake Forest office location. Many patients prefer their care in a smaller, intimate environment rather than a large hospital where care can become impersonal. Our office provides an alternative to this high pressure approach to care. You need time to make important decisions about your own care and at North Shore Advanced Surgery we will help you weigh your options and make the best decision for you and your loved ones."
This content was provided by Dr. Sharpless "At first, your diagnosis may fill you with fear and uncertainty, but my goal is to make your journey easier. As a private practice cancer surgeon, I will help you navigate the confusing language, provide the tools to help with decisions and ensure your absolute comfort throughout your treatment path.
You will have access to the same high quality care as downtown, but without the hassle of the commute. It's important to be surrounded by family and friends and being closer to home ensures a more stress-free recovery.
At North Shore Advanced Surgery, we believe that laughter and life can be attained through the warm care we offer. It is my promise to you, that we will assist in putting together a treatment team that caters to your individual needs now and into the future."
