Knee Surgery and Treatment Options in Grayslake, IL
Your knee is one of your largest and most complex joints that helps keep you moving all day long. It is made up of a number of bones, bursae, ligaments, and tendons, which all need to be healthy and fully functional in order to provide you stability and pain-free walking. There are many different ways you can sustain a knee injury, each of which requires its own treatment and rehabilitation program. By performing a number of different tests, Dr. Chams can help diagnose your knee condition, as well as come up with an individualized treatment and rehabilitation program that is catered to your needs and lifestyle. Some of the more common knee injuries Dr. Chams has helped effectively treat include:
- ACL injuries
- MCL and LCL injuries
- Meniscus tear and repair
- Patellofemoral Ligament injuries
- Chondromalacia Patella
- Osteochondritis Dissecans
- Osgood Schlatter Disease
- Patellar / Quadriceps Tendonitis
- Patellofemoral Pain
- Runners and Jumpers Knee
- Knee Arthritis
Many knee conditions can be treated with knee arthroscopy surgery. This minimally invasive surgical procedure allows for a quicker recovery, less pain, and significantly smaller incisions. Dr. Chams uses the most cutting-edge technology to help produce the best results.
Shoulder Surgery and Treatment Options in Illinois
Your shoulders are composed of rotator cuffs and other small muscles and ball-and-socket joints, while the rotator cuff is responsible for protecting your joints. This allows your joints to promote the flexibility and stability of your shoulder. But because shoulders are vital for everyday movement, with many actions being repetitive (especially for certain jobs and sports), shoulder injuries are extremely common and can be debilitating. But you don’t have to live in pain forever! Dr. Chams is highly experienced with a wide variety of shoulder conditions, including:
- Labral Tear
- Rotator Cuff Tear
- AC Sprain
- Biceps Tendinopathy
- Frozen Shoulder
- Shoulder Arthritis
- Shoulder Bursitis
- Bankart and Reverse Bankart Tears
- SLAP Tear
- Shoulder Instability
- Shoulder Fractures
- Thrower’s Shoulder/Little League Shoulder
- Shoulder Calcific Tendonitis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Distal Bicep Ruptures
- Shoulder Impingement
For those suffering from a severe joint condition, Dr. Chams can perform shoulder reconstruction surgery. But surgery isn’t always necessary to regain full movement in your shoulder. Dr. Chams will need to have an in-depth understanding of the shoulder complex to determine the right diagnosis and treatment protocol.
