FOR PATIENTS

For Our Patients

CORE Orthopedics & Sports Medicine has four well-respected physicians. Athletic injuries and on-the-job accidents causing minor or severe injuries are treated expertly at CORE in the office or in a hospital. Our physicians review all possible non-surgical treatment options with the patient and work closely with physical therapists and trainers in-house to get the athlete back on the playing field or the worker back to work. If surgical intervention is needed, then the latest techniques and facilities are available at four hospitals in the western suburbs of Chicago.

Patient Checklist

Please be familiar with this checklist before your office visit.

What To Wear:

  • Patients having an examination of the Hips or Knees:
  • Please bring or wear shorts (without metal) for X-rays and examination.
  • Patients having an examination of the Shoulder or Back:

What To Bring:

  1. If you have had an X-ray or MRI, please bring the CD or films. This is very important!

  6. Please bring your medication and past medical history list with you to your next appointment.

Preparing For Your Joint Replacement Surgery

Workers’ Compensation

CORE Orthopedics & Sports Medicine welcomes the opportunity to treat patients injured on the job. We pride ourselves on restoring the health of the patient so they can get back to the lifestyle they enjoyed prior to the injury. The Illinois Worker’s Compensation and the U.S. Department of Labor Workers Compensation programs are designed to provide effective care and treatment for injured workers.

Patients who were injured on the job and are using Worker’s Compensation insurance provided by their employer may select their own orthopedic physician for care. Our physicians and physical therapist have years of experience in working with on-the-job injuries and helping a patient regain health. Physical therapy plays a big role in the recovery of a patient and in educating patients on how to prevent further injury.
