The orthopedic program at Rush University Medical Center continues its tradition of excellence with another top ten ranking by U.S. News & World Report as No. 6 in the nation and as the top-ranked orthopedic program in Illinois and Indiana for 2021.   

The hospital’s orthopedic program is staffed by physicians from Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR) who are team doctors for the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls, and the Chicago Fire Soccer Club, among other teams.
