      Dr. Dusek is a very caring, sharing orthopedic dr. He had operated on my wife a number of years ago and replaced her knees and they both turned out excellent. He has also treated my left knee and that also turned out excellent.
      in Belleville, IL |
      I would highly recommend Dr. Dusek. He has performed both a knee surgery (1997) and has repaired my torn rotator cuff (2007). I would call each of the operations as very successful. Most recently in 2015 he examined my other knee. I thought he was going to recommend doing surgery, but he advised me not to have it done. He gave me a cortisone shot about 6 weeks ago and I now have no pain. When my wife needed elbow surgery he recommended another surgeon with more expertise in that area. 5 Stars+

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
