Care Philosophy

Most of the patients that come to see me are asking whether or not they are ready for surgery. It's kind of a big decision. It is a life changing decision because they're about to part with their hip or their knee and take on an artificial joint. I was a patient when I was younger with my shoulder, and I needed an operation to get me back to playing sports. And so I look at patients now as people who want to get back to - whether it be golf or just walking or whatever it is. And I think back when I was a patient and kind of put myself in their shoes and try to get them back to the function that I know that I wanted when I was younger and I know that they want now.

    in Chicago, IL |
    Awful - Two hours at the appointment and was refused to be seen by Dr. Levine because I didn't want to do x-rays before being seen by him. The PA was horrible with no bedside manner, asked me a few questions and left. Came back and said Dr. Levine refused to see me to look at my hip if I didn't do the xrays even though I had a SCHEDULED appointment with him at 7:30 am. All in all at the appt for 2 hours and not eve seen by Dr. Levine. I am disgusted by this practice. I left crying. Thx Dr Levine

    Dr Levine gave me my life back. He is an absolute rock star. I had my surgery on Wednesday and home on Thursday. I'm tooling around the house with my walker and for the first time I'm 8 months - I'm happy and not in pain. If you need your hip replaced go to Dr Levine. He is a brilliant surgeon.

    Dr. Levine is a phenomenal surgeon! He is not afraid to tackle tough situations that other doctors will not handle. He is patient, courteous, and informative. I have referred many patients with the utmost confidence in him. He teaches at Rush University; and has received awards such as the Golden Apple. He is passionate for his patients. Call him with confidence. J.R. Aurora
