Dr. John Bottros, MD
Growing up in a family of physicians has instilled within me that a career in medicine is a way of life, not just a job. The path to a medical career became even more focused through my interest in the biomechanics of the human body and in particular, joint function and movement. That intrigue led me to pursue advanced orthopedic training as part of my surgical residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation after obtaining my medical degree at the State University of New York Upstate Medical University. Before establishing my own practice, I elected to pursue a fellowship in adult reconstructive orthopedic surgery at Rush Medical Center. A fellowship is the highest level of training an orthopedic surgeon can obtain, offering the opportunity to spend an additional year honing surgical skills and technique in a specific sub-specialty of orthopedics under the guidance of some of the country's top surgeons in the field. As a Board certified surgeon with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, my practice at OrthoIllinois specializes in adult reconstructive surgery of the knee and hip, with a special interest in complex primary and revision total joint replacement, rapid recovery and perioperative pain management after joint replacement.

Dr. Bottros has changed my life for the better. From pre-op to post op my experience was five star. Dr. Bottros is thorough, compassionate, intelligent and explains everything in detail. During every office visit I never felt rushed. My time with Dr. Boutros and Amanda Pumilia always gave me the impression that my time was valuable and they had no other place to be but with me. They are both phenomenal and a contributing factor to the success of Ortho Illinois. I chose the best.

I am a physician with osteoarthritis. I went to Dr. Bottros after hearing him give a presentation about new knee surgery techniques. I underwent a total knee arthroplasty in 2015. The surgery went very well. I was discharged the following day. The pain was very tolerable. Physical therapy began shortly after the surgery and I was back to work in five weeks. Dr. Bottros is a very gifted and kind surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to get rid of pain and on with their life.

Dr. Bottros has been great to work with for my knee replacement. He takes whatever time is needed to make sure all of your questions/concerns are being addressed. He even provides you with a cell phone number so you can call him anytime with questions/concerns. His skill as a surgeon is top level, and his reputation among other medical professionals I spoke with is excellent.
in Rockford, IL |
I was referred to Dr. Bottros as I've had three hip revisions. He did not perform the surgeries but I have been extremely impressed with the the time he takes to explain why I need to be careful. I'm relieved to have a surgeon in Rockford who is familiar with revisions.
in Rochelle, IL |
I have had maximum success with my new left hip. After only 6 months people are constantly surprised and then impressed by how well I am moving. Friendly, personable, intelligent, efficient, communicative, and professional are words that describe Dr. Bottros. I made a great choice in choosing Dr. Bottros for my total hip replacement and my wife and I highly recommend Dr. J. Bottros and his staff. A+++
in Rockford, IL |
I was impressed with his knowlege and how thoroughly he explained things. One tning I really appreciated that he didn't try to talk me into surgery, even though I really needed it. I'm so thankful my doctor recommmended him, and I will continue to recommend him to my family and friends!!!
in Poplar Grove, Illinois |
Dr. Bottros was awesome, he explained things to me, took the time to answer all my questions, great bedside manner, follow up care was excellent! I was up walking that same day! Surgery took 1 hour and 20 minutes! I would recommend Dr Bottros to anyone who needs knee or hip surgery. Had my surgery on December 1st, 2015, I was walking 1 mile about 1 month after surgery, it's now May 14th, 2016....5 months later, I'm walking 5 miles a day!
in Cherry Valley, IL |
wonderful Dr. explains things very well very courteous surgery went well and recovery time was less than expected Highly recommend
in Roscoe, IL |
Dr Bottros cares about the patient he is treating. Is honest and upfront about diagnosis but never pressures into doing a procedure. Is very personable and talks with you about your issue. My internist and rhuemy speak highly of him as do hospital staff. Dr Gilbertson is great too. I've recommended him to numerous people who have gone to him with nothing but great comments after seeing him. He did 2 knee replacements and 2 hip replacements on me. I feel better than I could ever imagine. Thanks
in Crystal Lake, IL |
Saw Dr. Bottros for hip issue that required hip replacement surgery. Surgery was clearly explained, went smoothly and my recovery has been terrific. My quality of life has improved 1000% since the surgery.
in Rockford, IL |
My neighbor recommended Dr. Bottros for my knee replacement and he was actually my second opinion. From the moment I met him, thru surgery and after care, Dr. Bottros always took the time to explain and answer all questions. He has a real compassion for his patients and made me feel very comfortable. He was upfront and honest with what to expect and he was right on the money with that. He did an excellent job with my knee replacement and I am so happy that I choose him as my surgeon!!
in Rockford, IL |
Dr. Bottros was highly recommended to me by another patient of his. I required right hip replacement surgery which Dr. Bottros completed. Upon review of followup x-rays over the course of 1 year, he was extremely pleased with the results as am I. I have excellent mobility and range of motion in my hip and will require left knee surgery in the future which I shall have done by Dr. Bottros. He is thorough, technically excellent, and concerned about his patient's welfare above all else.
