Dr. Kenneth Korcek, MD
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from New York, New York and I earned my B.S. degree in biology at the State University of New York, Binghamton, in 1992. I continued my studies at the New York Medical College, obtaining my medical degree in 1996. Following my graduation, I completed an internship and pursued advanced orthopedic training as part of my residency at St. Luke's - Roosevelt Hospital Center / Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. In addition, I completed another year at a subspecialty training program, or fellowship, in hand and upper extremity surgery at the Washington University School of Medicine. My practice is focused on diseases and disorders of the hand and upper extremity. I have attended and spoken at numerous lectures, made presentations, and authored several orthopedic research papers and articles. In addition to my extensive medical commitments, I enjoy digital photography, music, golfing, exploring advancements in technology and spending time with my family. 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. I am looking forward to meeting you. Sincerely, Kenneth Korcek, M.D.

Awesome guy. First time seeing Mr. Korcek. He took the time to answer my questions on a personal level. His staff were excellent also.

I had trigger finger surgery with Dr. Korcek in 2013. I experienced continued pain and the feeling that something was wrong immediately after surgery-kept gong back to him and was sent to physical therapy twice, and he prescribed topical creams that did nothing $$! Finally sought treatment at RUSH Orthopedic in Oak Park; the surgeon there removed "slime" and a pseudomembrane--I'm feeling better now, but suffered needlessly for years after my surgery with Dr. Korcek.
