Illinois Bone and Joint is a fabulous facility with top notch care takers. They take their time with you and yet keep... moving with X-rays, getting the patient ready to see the doctor and finishing up any questions, concerns or follow-up. I have seen Dr Roger Chams for my shoulder. He is kind, efficient and very knowledgeable. This was a return visit after a surgery ten years ago by Dr Chams. All is looking good and would happily return for other needs and would recommend him as well as Illinois Bone and Joint.read more

Dr. Chams is wonderful! He took the time listen to my daughter’s story about her sore broken arm. He was able to... turn my daughters tears into laughter, on such a busy day. We both were nervous about her break after being told that surgery was a possibility in our future, Dr. Chams put our minds at ease explaining how well the break would heal on its own doing a few simple things.read more

Dr. Chams performed two major surgeries on me: 1. Repaired & reattached almost all of the soft tissue in my shoulder... due to a significant fall causing a posterior dislocation (which was dislocated much longer than it should have been due to an error made in the emergency room; after 3 days of extreme pain I finally went to see Dr. Chams, he made the CORRECT diagnosis, and made special arrangements to take care of me as a very high priority); 2. Repaired and reattached all of the quad tendons in my knee due to them being torn in another, different, significant fall. His work was extremely high quality and his concern and care for my well-being was of the highest level. I was extremely pleased with him and his entire team (PA's, scheduling staff, etc.) throughout both processes, including all of the post-op appts. I have already recommended Dr. Chams to some of my friends/co-workers and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs shoulder or knee surgery.read more
