My 96 y.o. mom fell and dislocated, and broke her ankle in 3 places. Mostly by luck Dr. League became her specialist and surgeon. After surgery and about 3 1/2 months in a rehab facility, mom is walking again. Mom was very motivated, however without Dr. League's expertise the result would have been impossible. BTW, a nice guy too.

Had an accident in which I broke my right ankle in 3 places. Fast forward from the Wednesday to the Monday in which Dr. League's team found a way to squeeze me in. From that moment on I was in great hands. Dr. League and his staff were always on point with questions, returned phone calls early on and post-surgery “check in” phone calls. I pray to the All Father that I never need to see the Dr. again, but, if you are in need, this is a great, caring and competent doctor with an incredible staff.

I was very pleased with the care I’ve received from Dr League and his staff. My husband and I have both had successful foot surgeries with him. I liked his approach to patient care.
Des Plaines, IL |
On my first visit he diagnosed and explained a surgical treatment for which I had no critical complications. My follow up visits, I did not feel rushed and that he listened to my concerns.
in Schaumburg, IL |
Dr. League is an outstanding doctor! The care given by and attentiveness of Dr. League and his staff at Illinois Bone and Joint Institute was exceptional! I ruptured the Achilles tendon in my left leg in 2014 and have played rugby, basketball, and baseball since then. In 2016, I ruptured the Achilles tendon in my right leg and have returned to my active lifestyle thanks to his help!

I was assigned Dr League by the ER at Lutheran General, and was so glad he was assigned! I guess I lucked out. He was professional without being condescending and really fixed me up very well. His follow up & referrals were outstanding too.
in Glenview |
Dr. League did a great job on my Lapidus Procedure. He thoroughly explained what the surgery entailed and what the recovery process would be like. He called me the day after my surgery to check on me and see how I was dealing with the pain. He had excellent bedside manner which made me feel comfortable going into the surgery. I also had an easy time scheduling follow up appointments to have stitches removed and x-rays to monitor my healing progress.
in Skokie, IL |
Tore my Achilles Tendon and Dr League was great from the first visit- got me scheduled for surgery very quick, explained everything very thoroughly!! followed up with me after and kept me updated on my healing progression at future appt's- the actually surgery went very well -I would recommend Dr League to anyone who requires foot/leg surgery
in Wauconda, IL |
My first office were very informative of his findings in x-rays and his surgical procedures. After surgery he advised me of his findings and success of surgery. He visited me DAILY in hospital. He greeted me with a smile and my personal name, and positive attitude. I felt like an individual person, instead of numbered patient. I trusted his knowledgeable advise. He asked if I had any questions and was considerate of any needs. On my dismissal day he advised me of my follow-up office visit.
in Gurnee, IL |
I would highly recommend Dr. League. He listened to all my concerns and answered them in a way I could understand. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented and caring.
in Joliet, IL |
Had a surgery by my Achilles and it went well. Good doctor.
in Elk Grove Village |
after being crushed on the job i thought i would lose a foot but Dr League fixed both legs/ankles/feet and got me up and walking again..a miracle worker in my mind ,.keep up the good work.
in Northbrook, IL |
Dr. League treated me for a severe and unbearably painful hammertoe deformity several other surgeons felt uncomfortable dealing with. Dr. League did not hesitate to spend time to review all aspects of my condition, explain surgical options and outline recovery process. Surgery itself went through smoothly I had only mild post-operative pain and recovered completely within just 3 months. It is such a relief to walk a distance without pain and wear any shoes I like! Many thanks to Dr. League!
