Excellence at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush
The right care for you: At MOR, we see the most upper extremity (arm) patients of any health care group in Illinois — including the most complex and rare conditions. This means we have the experience and knowledge to make sure you get the correct diagnosis and treatment recommendation.
Minimally invasive surgery: Our surgeons have many years of experience with minimally invasive techniques that reduce overall pain and shorten recovery time. In fact, some of these procedures only require an incision that is less than one inch, so scarring is minimal and your post-surgery function is maximized. Our experience means you can be confident in the treatment recommended by our surgeons.
Integrated physical and occupational therapy: Most hand, wrist and elbow patients require physical therapy and/or occupational therapy as part of their care plan. Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush offers physical and occupational therapy as part of their integrated care model so that our team of therapists have a direct line of communication to your doctor which helps improve overall care and rehabilitation.
