Advocate's approach to excellence in orthopedics
Advocate Health Care's orthopedic specialists and surgeons diagnose and treat broken bones, congenital abnormalities, sports-related injuries, joint pain, and related health issues for both adults and children. These musculoskeletal problems may compromise healthy movement from birth, after injury, or over time as the body ages.
Advocate is particularly known for exceptional orthopedic care for children and adolescents. Advocate Children's Hospital - Oak Lawn specializes in the treatment of developmental and congenital deformities of the upper and lower extremities, congenital dislocation of the hip, club feet, scoliosis, kyphosis, fractures and trauma, muscular dystrophy, and the musculoskeletal effects of cerebral palsy and spina bifida. Beyond offering surgical expertise, your pediatric orthopedic specialist coordinates and participates in treatment throughout care.
Orthopedic specialists and surgeons at Advocate place a high priority on serving as a consultative resource for primary care physicians and patient families. We communicate openly throughout the process, from our first contact through your rehabilitation.
