      This guy is phenomenal. He's professional, funny and the greatest surgeon. I fell in Mexico breaking my ankle. He saw me immediately upon my return AND operated on a Saturday. I never even took any pain pills.
      in Huntley, IL |
      Had bilateral hip replacement and changed my life. No more pain and I can do almost anything I want at 10 weeks from surgery. I would recommend him to anyone who has hip issues and don't be afraid to have them both done at the same time as there is only one recovery. Was back to work at 6 weeks and I don't have a desk job. Top Notch.
      in Mchenry, IL |
      This doctor will not care about your needs. In addition, he will want you to always re-schedule for a second appointment so their office makes even more money. I would not recommend this doctor at all. I wouldn't use any of their associates either. These doctors should not be trusted.

      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.

      Dr. Daniels says...

      The foundation of Dr. Daniels' practice is built on caring for the needs of each patient as an individual. That focus is reflected in turn by the high level of satisfaction his patients report on surveys conducted at the area hospitals, at his clinical practice and in earning the designation of "Best Doctor" on multiple occasions. Beginning with a commitment to treat each patient with compassion and respect, Dr. Daniels works to help them thoroughly understand their conditions, the treatment options available, and together formulate a treatment plan. That plan will usually emphasize conservative, nonsurgical care first, with surgery always being the last option.

      Dr. Daniels recognizes and respects the value of a team approach. By utilizing the skills offered by many types of healthcare providers he is able to achieve excellent outcomes from his patient care. This includes utilizing his physician assistant, Chelsea Thomas, physical therapists, physiatrists, and chiropractors to craft the best course of care for each patient's unique condition.

      He specializes in hip and knee joint replacement and has completed advanced training to stay current with new minimally invasive procedures and the most advanced technology. He is experienced with custom and robotic technology and is an area leader in the newer Anterior Approach hip procedure. With 20 years experience, Dr. Daniels has performed close to 4,000 total joint procedures for area residents as well as accumulated extensive experience and training in sports medicine, trauma, and general orthopedics.

      In addition to patient care, Dr. Daniels is involved in medical research and the development of new orthopedic products and procedures. He is active in leadership at the local hospitals, serving in numerous departmental and officer posts over the years. As a life-long area resident, he is committed to his community and has coached youth sports and served as Team Physician for Marion Central and other high schools throughout his career.

      When he is not practicing medicine, Dr. Daniels is an avid adventurer and traveler. With a love of both the sea and mountains, he has enjoyed extensive travel with his family. He is an accomplished mountaineer, completing over 40 summit climbs, has adventure raced and even swam with sharks. Closer to home, he enjoys golf, marathon running, tennis, water sports, refinishing old wood boats, and brewing his own craft beer.

      As an osteoarthritis sufferer himself, Dr. Daniels understands and empathizes with his patients. He looks forward to the opportunity to assist you in a return to a more active and pain-free life.
