Since 2012, orthopedic and sports medicine experts from the Chicago Center for Orthopedics (CCO) have provided medical care to the Schaumburg Boomers minor league baseball team, making the CCO the exclusive healthcare provider for the team’s athletes. The partnership is part of the CCO’s overall commitment to improve the health of the community by caring for both professional players and amateur athletes.
The Schaumburg Boomers
The Schaumburg Boomers play their home games out of the Schaumburg Boomers Stadium. They are a member of the Frontier League, a professional baseball league. Founded in 1993, the Frontier League provides its players with an avenue to succeed while learning to be professionals. It also offers its fans affordable, family-oriented entertainment. The Frontier League is home to 14 clubs. The Schaumburg Boomers joined the league in 2012.
To keep the Schaumburg Boomers athletes as healthy as possible, the CCO's sports medicine specialists provide patient-centric care and expertise. As the CCO strives to build on its commitment to educate surrounding communities about healthy lifestyles and fitness, player and mascot appearances at Weiss throughout the season will help promote the importance of physical activity and its role in health for life among hospital employees and patients.

This medical partnership not only keeps the outstanding Schaumburg Boomers athletes healthy and at top performance, but also serves as a vehicle for outreach to competitive and recreational athletes of all levels, from professionals to weekend warriors. Through interaction with the community and ongoing education, our goal is to improve injury prevention and even injury care with minimally invasive or arthroscopic surgery.
New techniques in hip arthroscopy, rotator cuff repair and ACL reconstruction have enabled athletes with injuries in the shoulder, hip or knee to rapidly recover, return to sports and get on with their lives. CCO's Sports Medicine team provides the right balance between preventive care, individual athlete/patient understanding and leading edge techniques.
