The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine is ranked 11th in the nation for pediatric orthopaedics according to U.S.News and World Report. Our sports medicine specialists have advanced training in pediatrics and sports medicine so that they can give age-appropriate care to active, growing children and teenagers who become injured. Their services are available at our main hospital and outpatient sites throughout the Chicago metropolitan area.
Our commitment to family-centered care means that we treat not only the injury but also address the well-being of the entire family. Each patient is different, so our care addresses your family’s unique wishes and goals. We take your child’s individual needs into account, focusing on sports-specific and age-appropriate treatment, education and rehab exercises to return your child to activity safely. Our team also carefully evaluates each patient’s unique set of injury risk factors and uses this information to provide individualized injury prevention advice.
Our care is evidence-based, meaning it follows the best scientific guidelines and research. Some of these studies come from our own Institute for Sports Medicine, which is active in research to improve sports injury prevention and treatment.
