Dr. Salazar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Salazar "Dr. Salazar is an assistant professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. He sees patients at Loyola's main campus in Maywood and at Loyola centers in Burr Ridge, Oak Brook and Orland Park. Dr. Salazar treats shoulder and elbow conditions resulting from sports injuries, job-related injuries, aging and other causes. These conditions include shoulder and elbow fractures, shoulder and elbow instability, arthritis, rotator cuff injuries, labral injuries, biceps tears, cubital tunnel syndrome and cartilage damage in the shoulder. "Orthopaedic surgery in the upper extremities is very rewarding because in the great majority of cases we can return patients to their pre-injury quality of life," Dr. Salazar said. Dr. Salazar also performs shoulder replacement surgery, in which arthritic joint surfaces are replaced with a highly polished metal ball and plastic socket. Although shoulder replacements are less common than knee and hip replacements, they are just as effective in relieving pain from bone-on-bone arthritis, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Shoulder replacements have enabled Dr. Salazar's patients to return to such activities as golfing, swimming and weight lifting. "A total shoulder replacement can be a grand slam," Dr. Salazar said. "I've had patients who told me they wished they had undergone the surgery five years earlier." Before joining Loyola, Dr. Salazar spent 15 years in the U.S. Air Force Medical Corps, serving as a F15 and F22 flight surgeon and an orthopaedic surgeon. In 2013-14, he deployed as an active duty orthopaedic surgeon the Middle East in support of combat operations. Dr. Salazar said many of the skills he learned in the military, such as managing stress, troubleshooting problems and working as a cohesive team, are transferrable to civilian orthopaedic surgery. Dr. Salazar earned his medical degree at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. He completed a residency in orthopaedic surgery at Loyola University Medical Center and a fellowship in shoulder and elbow surgery at Barnes-Jewish Hospital at Washington University Medical Center. Dr. Salazar is board certified in orthopaedic surgery."
