Advice on how to avoid and treat sports-related injuries

This list of local doctors who treat sports-related injuries was prepared for Chicago by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Doctors’ names are arranged alphabetically by specialty. Following the name is the doctor’s subspecialty or area of special interest (if the doctor has provided that information to Castle Connolly.) The next item notes the doctor’s primary hospital affiliation (where applicable), followed by his or her telephone number.

We have abbreviated hospital names; see the next page for an explanation of those abbreviations, as well as the addresses and telephone numbers of the hospitals mentioned in the guide. This information should help indicate whether a doctor practices in your area. Keep in mind, however, that some doctors may have a broader range of practice since some hospitals are members of a larger association. For instance, Evanston Hospital, Glenbrook Hospital, Highland Park Hospital, and Skokie Hospital are all members of the NorthShore University HealthSystem (northshore.org); Christ Medical Center and Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, and eight other area hospitals are all members of the Advocate Health Care System (advocatehealth.com).

Castle Connolly and Chicago have made every effort to provide the most current information. Readers are encouraged to call prospective doctors to ensure that none of the information has changed since publication of this guide.
