At Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, we have the experience to restore your function, whether you're suffering from tennis elbow, cartilage damage, a stress fracture, a torn ligament or another problem.

We only recommend surgery if it is truly needed, so you can feel confident that it is the right option for you.
