Orthopedic surgeons lead center dedicated to avoiding invasive surgeries

Listen

Instead of performing joint replacements, physicians at Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group's newly launched Hip and Knee Joint Preservation Center at Central DuPage Hospital are focusing on delaying invasive surgery through nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatments for deteriorating joints.

Orthopedic physicians Brian Chilelli, MD, and Sanjeev Bhatia, MD, are leading the center, and are offering patients emerging treatments such as cartilage restoration, orthobiologics and meniscus transplantation instead of a total knee or hip replacements.

Research into joint preservation and orthopedic wellness is also taking place at the new center.

Minimally invasive surgeries will take place at Winfield, Ill.-based Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital, and other procedures will be performed at the Warrenville, Ill.-based Hip and Knee Joint Preservation Center.
