Dr. Schwartz's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schwartz "I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from Lombard, Illinois and I earned my B.S. degree in biology at the University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana in 1998. I continued my studies at the University of Illinois in Chicago, obtaining my medical degree in 2002. Following my graduation, I completed an internship and pursued advanced orthopedic training as part of my residency at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. In addition, I completed another year at a subspecialty training program, or fellowship, in hand surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. My practice is focused on diseases and disorders of the hand and upper extremity. It is my mission to provide all my patients excellent service, as well as compassionate care. I always strive to provide you the same high quality of orthopedic care that I would offer to a member of my family. I apologize in advance in case you have to wait to see me, as at times, I may be called to the hospital to attend a serious hand injury or earlier patient appointments may have required more time than anticipated. Please be assured I will do my best to see you as soon as possible and make sure you also receive the individualized attention you need. I am active in continuing education and have spoken at numerous lectures, made presentations, and have authored an orthopedic research publication. In addition to my extensive medical commitments, I enjoy weight lifting, jogging, tennis, and playing golf. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at OrthoIllinois. My goal is to provide you the best medical care available."
