Dr. Laverty is an excellent surgeon and a very affable individual that will make you feel totally confident about his ability to perform any trauma related task at hand. He totally revamped and repaired a surgery done by a surgeon in another city that never healed after a 12 week period. Being a paraplegic, my bones suffer from osteoporosis, so they are very soft, and brittle. The first surgeon never took that into consideration and totally botched the 1st surgery. Dr. Laverty, removed all the previous hardware and completely stabilized my entire leg with a plate and 5 screws. It started healing by the 2nd week after the surgery. I can't thank Dr. Laverty enough for the great job he did not to mentioned helping me to get my life back so I can get back to riding my handcycle 25 miles three times per week. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing any type of leg surgery, especially trauma related. He's the BEST!!

Dr. Laverty is amazing! I was from out of town and shattered my tibia, along with tearing a ligament in my leg. I was in the ER at 1:00am and I saw Dr. Laverty shortly after, with surgery scheduled that morning at 6:00am. He calmed my nerves and explained everything that was going on. Fast-forward to the second surgery a few days later, he was so responsive, answered all of my wife’s questions and made sure everything was handled to perfection. I am currently sitting back at my home in Chicago, 2 days after surgery, only thanking Dr. Laverty and his team for doing a tremendous job (even though he told me I wouldn’t be up and literally running within 7 days). All joking aside, 5-stars of everything across the board. Go to this man and he will handle everything for you!

I'm a Physical Therapist. So, when I had a wicked ankle fracture, I called my peers to see who was the best Ortho surgeon--Dr. Laverty! Awesome surgical skills, great follow up appointments, second surgery to remove metal, great staff (PAs, nurses, X-ray tech, front office--all A++). Glad to be 6 months post fracture and on the road to my best, functional potential. Thanks, Dr. Laverty and staff!!

Dr. Laverty is extremely efficient and knowledgeable. He’s to the point and explains your situation clearly. His office staff is seriously the best I’ve ever seen. X-rays are done almost immediately and the staff is very kind. Checking out is quite efficient and the front desk is especially cordial.
