"My practice philosophy is to emphasize and exhaust all non-surgical treatment options before considering surgery. When surgery is necessary, we utilize the latest technological advances and minimally invasive surgery to assure patients are receiving the best care possible to accelerate recovery time." Dr. Lutfi is the Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Illinois, in Chicago.
