a very caring and knowledgeable physician, he operated on my back and shoulder after i was in a car accident.

I love Dr Dusek and his entire staff. He's successfully replaced both my knees now and I'm doing great. He restored my mobility. They made the entire surgery as easy as possible. I truly felt they all cared for my well being.

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+
