UChicago Faculty Physicians hold faculty positions with the University of Chicago and provide care for patients on the academic health system’s main campus in Hyde Park and in care centers throughout the Chicago region.


Bethany Slater, MD, is a pediatric surgeon who provides care to children of all ages who suffer from a wide spectrum of conditions, including congenital malformations, anorectal malformations and pediatric cancers. She has extensive training and experience using minimally invasive surgical techniques, which treats patients using a smaller incision that decreases post-surgical pain and speeds recovery.

Dr. Slater strives to provide compassionate care using evidence-based treatments. She works with a multidisciplinary team to ensure children receive personalized, complete approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of their conditions.

Dr. Slater will primarily be seeing patients at Advocate Children’s Medical Group in Park Ridge, Ill.
