Recover at Home with Minimally Invasive Same-Day Procedures

Presence St. Mary’s outpatient Surgery Center allows us to deliver expert care that lets you recover in the comfort of your own home the same day as your procedure. With industry-leading technology, new anesthetics that are easier on the body, and a focus on minimally invasive approaches, our surgical team provides patients with an alternative to overnight hospitalization.

Dedicated Ear, Head & Neck Center

Children and adults battling dizziness and hearing loss, ear, nose and throat disorders or severe sinus conditions receive expert care at Presence St. Mary's Ear, Head, Neck Institute and Hearing Center. Our surgical team—led by fellowship-trained surgeon, Dr. Francis Hobson—brings years of expertise to patients facing:

  • Conventional and minimally invasive sinus surgery
  • Head and neck surgery
  • Balloon sinuplasty
  • Implantable hearing aids and devices
  • Innovative Cochlear Implant Procedures

Dr. Hobson was the first otolaryngologist (a specialist in conditions of the ear, nose and throat) to bring cochlear implant surgery to our Kankakee and Bourbonnais communities, and is extremely skilled at using the Baha® System, part of which is implanted under the skin and behind the ear, to help people hear better and improve their ability to understand speech with less distortion and feedback compared to conventional hearing aids. And, because the ear canal is open, it helps to reduce problems caused by chronic ear infections or allergies. Soon, Dr. Hobson will introduce cochlear implants to deaf individuals—providing them the gift of sound for the first time.
