Before we provide our clients with treatments, we first make sure that we understand the nature of their condition. For this reason, we let them undergo an assessment that may include interviews and tests. With this, not only can we diagnose their condition, but we can also find the best approach to promoting their recovery. In this process, we may also get in touch with their other medical care providers to understand specifications about their other health conditions.

With us, no two conditions are the same, and every client deserves to be provided with treatment services that cater to their unique needs and preferences. This makes us your ideal choice for orthopedic surgery in Tinley Park, Illinois, and more.

We also offer internal medicine care.

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic Surgeons specialize in musculoskeletal health, diagnosis, and treatment, but unlike physical therapists, they specialize in operations to help their client manage their physical health issues that may involve pain and other functional impairments. At Chicago Center For Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery, we have a team of orthopedic surgeons who provide customized services and thus can help everyone from athletes, children, and adults with injuries, chronic illnesses, or disabilities or those who are recovering from work accidents.

Viscosupplementation is a procedure where a thick fluid called hyaluronic acid is injected into the knee joint. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the synovial (joint) fluid. It acts as a lubricant to enable bones to move smoothly over each other and as a shock absorber for joint loads. To learn more about Viscosupplementation procedures, please click here.


In-office arthroscopy gives us the ability to look inside the joint and make definitive diagnoses regarding joint pain. To learn more about this type of procedure, please click here.
