About Us

Welcome to Alan Chen Surgical Associates.  A full service cosmetic, reconstructive and hand surgery practice proudly serving the south suburbs of Chicago since 1974. With multiple practice locations and hospital affiliations, access to the most advanced techniques for cosmetic and reconstructive surgery has never been easier.  

Founded by Dr. Vic T Tsai in 1974, our practice flourished into an extremely busy reconstructive and hand surgery center helping countless individuals in the greater Joliet area. With the addition of Dr. Alan Chen, additional services such as wrist arthroscopy, complex cosmetic surgery and implant based breast reconstruction became more readily available to the local community.  Dr. Chen officially took over the practice in 2009 and since then has expanded the reach and breadth substantially.  

In 2014 we proudly welcomed Dr. Matthew Endara to progress the mission of our practice even further.  Dr. Endara is exceptionally well trained in cosmetic surgery and microsurgical techniques with a special interest in application of these procedure to patients undergoing breast reconstruction.  Now, the most advanced forms of breast reconstruction are being offered to patients in the South Suburbs of Chicago with the convenience of being able to stay close to home for all necessary procedures.

With our own JCAHO accredited surgery center located on site, Alan Chen Surgical Associates is one of very few cosmetic surgery practices in the area to offer all forms of cosmetic surgery in a cost-saving full service on-site operating room.  Joliet Outpatient Center, the surgical suite of Alan Chen Surgical Associates, is proud to be re-accredited by the Joint Commission. Thanks to the hard work and personal sacrifices of the amazing staff, JOC passed the survey with 100% and NO FINDINGS of any problems.
