Knee Surgery and Treatment Options in Illinois
Your knees are a major part of what keeps you mobile. Knees are made up of a handful of bones, bursae, ligaments, and tendons. When healthy, these parts provide you stability and pain-free walking. But if any of these body parts are injured, it can severely interrupt your knee’s functionality. There are a number of ways in which you can injure your knee. From bad falls, to arthritis, to everyday wear and tear, it’s important that your treatment and rehabilitation program is personalized based on your injury and activity level. Dr. Chams will use a variety of tests to best diagnose your knee condition before he provides an individualized treatment and rehabilitation program. Some common knee injuries Dr. Chams has helped effectively treat in the past include:
- ACL injuries
- MCL and LCL injuries
- Meniscus tear and repair
- Patellofemoral Ligament injuries
- Chondromalacia Patella
- Osteochondritis Dissecans
- Osgood Schlatter Disease

Dr. Chams is an expert on using the most cutting-edge technology when performing knee arthroscopy surgery, which can be used to treat a variety of knee conditions. Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that results in quicker recovery time, less pain, and significantly smaller incisions.
Shoulder Surgery and Treatment Options in Highland Park, IL
To provide full mobility in your shoulder, your rotator cuff muscles help protect your ball-and-socket joint, which are responsible for the flexibility and stability of your shoulder. But because many shoulder movements are repetitive, especially in certain jobs and sports, it is very easy to injure your shoulder. While shoulder injuries are extremely common, they can be painful and debilitating. But this pain does not need to be permanent! 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
Surgery is not always necessary to help stop your shoulder pain, but for more severe joint conditions Dr. Chams can perform shoulder reconstruction surgery. When diagnosing your injury, Dr. Chams will need to have an in-depth understanding of the shoulder complex to determine the right treatment protocol.
