in Rockford, IL |
Dr. Bresch is a true HERO who cares. I suffered for two years with a tibia issue. He immediately put me at ease with his friendly and kind manner. He listened attentively - looked at xrays and within ten minutes from point of meeting, he knew the problem. The rod in my tibia was hinged giving me a chronic stress fracture. TWO YEARS with the original ortho dr. who only gave me leg cream and told me everything looked fine! My leg has been 100% since Dr. Bresch removed the rod from my tibia.
in Chicago, IL |
Fully torn ACL. First opinion told me surgery wasn't necessary. Came to Dr Bresch as a second opinion and just felt comfortable with his diagnosis and what steps we should take. It's been 3 years since my surgery and other than some tendenitis early on, i feel great. *knock on wood*

Had a bilateral total knee replacement; surgery was completed in less that 1.30 hours; no complications; excellent professional; answers all questions thoroughly; considerate; every visit was a positive experience building my confidence that I will walk again; I feel great now and highly recommend this physician.
in Niles, IL |
my experience was superior. I had humeral head resurfacing of my right shoulder in 2011 and to this day my shoulder is strong and I have great motion in my shoulder.
