Hand, Wrist and Elbow Institute

Top doctors—hand, wrist and elbow surgery

With the introduction of the Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush Hand, Wrist & Elbow Institute in Chicago, patients can experience surgery from the best experts in the Chicago area at Rush University Medical Center and Rush Oak Park Hospital. Drs. Mark Cohen, John Fernandez and Robert Wysocki are board certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons who have conducted extensive research in the latest treatments and procedures. They use the most innovative, minimally invasive techniques to decrease the pain and recovery time of patients undergoing treatment of both common and complex hand, wrist and elbow conditions. Often, these procedures are done with a less than one-inch incision, leaving minimal scarring.

Advantages of minimally invasive surgery

Potential advantages of minimally invasive surgery versus traditional open techniques include: shorter hospitalizations, less postoperative pain, faster recovery, reduced blood loss, less soft tissue damage, less scarring, and improved function.

Drs. Mark Cohen, John Fernandez and Robert Wysocki lecture at national and international conferences where they teach other doctors these cutting edge approaches. They are leaders in innovative hand, wrist and elbow surgery techniques. Conservative (non-operative) care is a main focus. However, when needed, they have the knowledge, experience and expertise to perform surgery using the most up to date and minimally invasive methods. They only perform procedures that have a proven track record and have been validated in well-controlled studies.
