Knee Surgery and Treatment Options in Illinois
Because your knees play a major part in your mobility, they are extremely susceptible to injuries. Made up of bones, bursae, ligaments, and tendons, there are many different parts that can be injured, which affect your overall stability and cause pain while walking. Because your knee is so complex, there are many different ways in which you can sustain an injury. No matter what knee condition you are suffering from, it’s important that your treatment and rehabilitation program is personalized based on your injury and activity level. Dr. Chams will use cutting edge technology to help diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate your knee for the best functional outcome. Common knee injuries Dr. Chams can help with 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

When surgery is needed, Dr. Chams uses knee arthroscopy surgery. This type of surgery is preferred due to it being both less invasive and painful, while also requiring significantly smaller incisions and resulting in a quicker recovery time.
Shoulder Surgery and Treatment Options in Libertyville, IL
Similar to your knees, your shoulders are complex body parts that are largely responsible for movement. The rotator cuffs in your shoulders protect your ball-and-socket joints, which are responsible for the shoulder’s flexibility and stability. But your shoulders withstand many repetitive movements, making them susceptible to injuries. Shoulder injuries can be painful and debilitating, but this pain doesn’t have to be long-term. Dr. Chams is an expert at treating many 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
While surgery is not always necessary to help stop your shoulder pain, Dr. Chams is an expert at shoulder reconstruction surgery. To decide the best treatment path for you, Dr. Chams will need to have an in-depth understanding of the shoulder complex to determine the right protocol.
