Delia A. – Jun 28, 2021
I have had two surgeries with Dr. Kadakia: R Achilles reconstruction (i.e., allograft with FHL tendon transfer); and L Achilles repair. Not only does he provide excellent clinical care and followup, he also understands the emotional pain of not being able to move in meaningful ways. I will never forget the day that he looked at me while I was crying and stated, "We'll get this fixed." I joke with him: "You have too good of a bedside manner to be a surgeon." Dr. Kadakia is what we all want in a doctor. p.s. His team is equally professional and caring.

Dr. Kadakia took my case after a previous surgeon botched a triple arthrodesis procedure on my clubfoot. Not only did Dr. Kadakia correct the problems with amazing skill; he also provided emotional support and true concern for my overall well being. He was transparent during the COVID-19 situation and recommended that I postpone. His confidence is completely backed up with skill and compassion! He has changed my life for the better!

I broke my ankle in January in a few places and tore some ligaments. Dr. Kadakia was amazingly positive, confident, and reassuring that I would be totally fine and walking in no time after surgery. He did an amazing job and my ankle has healed without issue! Not only is he super upbeat and likeable, he's also the best dressed doctor around! Highly recommend!

Dr. Kadakia was fantastic. I am 30 years old and needed a full reconstruciton of my ankle from a bad basketball injury. It is now 6 months after surgery and I am almost back to 100%. He took his time to explain me the surgery, recovery, rehab and life after. I hope to never have surgery again but if it was necessary, I would work with Kadakia again!

Dr. Kadakia demonstrated elite expertise on the foot/ankle. He had conviction while being open, transparent and patient on explaining possible courses of action and outcomes. The procedure was a success and results consistent with what was represented. He laid out what to do if future issues arose and offered his availability. Overall a tremendous, positive experience.

Scott Casto – Dec 09, 2019
Before I decided to have the achilles and heel repair, Dr Kadakia provided objective advice in clear detail. Once I decided to go ahead, the entire team--from PAs to anesthesiologists to nurses--all fantastic. And post-surgery, the very careful rehab plan got me back on my feet and improving every week. Six months later, I'm running, biking and swimming again. It starts from the top, and Dr Kadakia not only led a great team, but his skill and care are behind the success.

DBK – Nov 02, 2019
Dr. Kadakia IS the best of the best. I was in a bad motorcycle accident in 2006 and I asked him to Please talk to me as a common person, not in a medical vocabulary. He did exactly that and made it very easy to understand what would be expected----including being upfront and telling me my leg would never be as good as it was. With the extensive damage that was done, I understood that. He has done a Great job getting it better------but as told to me right upfront--never will be what it was. I appreciate his honesty EVERTIME I have seen him. I was with him when he was in Michigan, and have/will stick with him in Chicago. VERY worth the distance.

Maryann in Indian Head Park , IL – Feb 15, 2019
I saw several surgeons prior to choosing Dr. Kadakia. A colleague recommended me to Dr. Kadakia. During my initial consult he was very straight forward regarding surgical options, and always had a back up plan which I found comfort in. He took into consideration my age, active lifestyle and selected the surgical option that was best for me. It's been 3 months since surgery and I now have no toe pain. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kadakia and Northwestern Hospital, both are fantastic!

Downers Grove – Jan 31, 2019
My second toe was hurting, from a previous operation.He said he would take care of that and the 3 toes next to the second toe. He said that they were hammer toes and they were not. The toes on my left foot are the same and they have not been diagnosed as hammertoes. Anyway this was done in 2013 and I put my foot in cold water every night to numb my foot. The last time I sa Dr. Kadakia, he said “I really f*** up this one.” And thenl“I’ve only done this twice, both on old people.

Dr Kadakia performed surgery on my granddaughter who dislocated her ankle playing basketball. He re attached the ligaments on both sides of her ankle. She is a notionally ranked swimmer and basketball player. She was back doing both sports in 12 weeks. He was very caring and helpful. We would highly recommend him.

Kathy in Chicago, IL – Sep 26, 2018
I feel so lucky to have had Dr Kadakia for my surgery to repair ankle fractures of three bones. He is clearly a world class surgeon and invented the plate system in my foot. In addition, he is warm and seems to truly care about his patients. His staff nurse was easy to reach during the difficult times of recovery when I had questions. My scar looks far better than people I've seen who have had similar surgeries with other docs. I'm forever grateful!
