Rush Excellence in Orthopedic Care

  • Top doctors: Our team includes some of Chicago magazine's Top Doctors, and doctors who are nationally and internationally recognized leaders in their fields. Whatever their area of expertise, all Rush orthopedic providers are focused on giving you the safest, most effective treatments to help you feel and function better.
  • A personalized team approach: Care for many orthopedic and spine issues involves multiple specialists, and we assemble your care team based on your needs. These experts — including surgeons, primary care orthopedic doctors, podiatrists, rheumatologists, physiatrists and therapists — work collaboratively to help you reach your goals. If you require treatment from a different or additional specialist, we can easily refer you.
  • State-of-the-art care: Rush orthopedic doctors are also innovators, leading efforts to continually improve patient care. That includes developing minimally invasive approaches that mean less time in the hospital. We also use advanced technology and treatments like biologics (e.g., platelet-rich plasma or stem cells) to help you heal faster; computer modeling and navigation; and customized implants. And members of our team have developed groundbreaking pain management strategies that reduce post-surgery pain and opioid medication use.
  • Keeping athletes in the game: When you suffer a sports injury, you want care that will help you return to action as quickly as possible. Rush sports medicine specialists are here to help, with personalized nonsurgical, nonsurgical and rehabilitative care. We can also help prevent injuries with programs designed to improve your strength, flexibility and coordination. Rush University Medical Center is home to the team doctors for the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox and many other professional and college teams and organizations. 
  • Second opinions: Whether you're newly diagnosed or are still having symptoms after treatment, a second opinion from Rush can help you make important decisions about your care. For instance, we understand which conditions will benefit from surgery, and we'll never suggest having a procedure that won't benefit you. You can schedule an in-person or virtual second opinion visit to confirm a diagnosis, discuss symptoms and get advice about treatment, including innovative options available only at Rush.
  • Recognized for excellence in spine surgery: Rush University Medical Center has been designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Spine Surgery. This designation recognizes Rush’s commitment to high-quality care, patient safety and providing the best possible outcomes for our spine surgery patients. It also reflects our expertise with cervical and lumbar fusion, cervical laminectomy and lumbar laminectomy/discectomy procedures, which contributes to fewer complications and readmissions compared to other facilities.
