Diagnostic Imaging

An accurate diagnosis often requires X-rays, MRIs, CAT scans, vascular imaging, or other technology. We are proud to offer all this digital diagnostic technology on site for fast access. Patients often can have imaging done immediately following their initial consultation.

Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Backed by the power of state-of-the-art robotic-assisted technology, the experienced orthopedic surgeons of the Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery can help you reclaim a pain-free and active lifestyle sooner than you thought possible.

Our same-day joint replacement program focuses on getting patients up and moving as quickly as possible after surgery. Robotic-assisted surgery allows for smaller incisions and less soft tissue injuries that assists in pain reduction and rapid recovery.

The Chicago Center for Orthopedics and Robotic-Assisted Surgery utilizes the ROSA® Knee System from Zimmer Biomet for a customized surgical approach to each patient’s knee replacement and the Mazor X Stealth™ Edition Robotic Guidance Platform for Spine Surgery.

Physical and Occupational Therapy

Physical and occupational therapy is often the first treatment prescribed. We have both inpatient and outpatient programs located in the hospital. The therapy team includes physiatrists, physical and occupational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, and case managers.

Care Coordinator

Our doctors have access to a personal care coordinator for their orthopedic patients. Often called the orthopedic concierge, the care coordinator is the “safety net” for each patient’s care. Contact Joint Care Coordinator Alan Given at (773) 564-5680
