Sherwin Ho, MD, with patient

When injury or illness affects the musculoskeletal system, the experienced and skilled orthopaedic team at the University of Chicago Medicine offers the full spectrum of nonsurgical and surgical care. As recognized leaders and pioneers in orthopaedic medicine, we attract patients with complex musculoskeletal needs from throughout the region. Continually striving to improve orthopaedic care, we actively research and develop new treatments, surgical techniques and devices for the field.

Focused Orthopaedic Care, Team Approach

J. Martin Leland III, MD and patient

The musculoskeletal system is the arrangement of bones, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments that protects your organs, shapes and supports your body, and is critical to all movement. Some of our orthopaedic surgeons concentrate on specific areas of the musculoskeletal system, such as the knee, hip or hand. Others focus on orthopaedic services within trauma care, sports medicine or pediatrics. These specializations give patients access to surgeons who are highly experienced in the latest treatments and techniques for virtually every orthopaedic condition.

Orthopaedic surgeons at the University of Chicago Medicine work on a multidisciplinary team that also includes primary care sports medicine specialists, physiatrists, physical and occupational therapists and advanced practice nurses -- all working together on prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for orthopaedic concerns and conditions.
