Joliet Outpatient Center

Alan Chen Surgical Associates is one of very few medical offices in the Chicagoland area that have a Joint Commission Certified operating suite.  To our patients, that means we can perform surgery on them in the same facility with convenience, but importantly, with safety. This allows us the ability to minimize the facility fee for cosmetic surgeries, making it more affordable for our patients.  Moreover, having this operating suite will allow our surgeon to see patients in emergency situations, and if necessary, operate on them the same day without stepping foot in a hospital.
