      He is extremely skilled. My hip has never felt better! I am walking great and pain free, something I haven't felt in years.
      Dr.Kris Alden is a remarkable surgeon. He is extremely well skilled at what he does along with having a very caring manner. He changed my life with the knee surgery I had and I cannot thank him enough. I like to be very active and thanks to him, I can continue to be by having no limitations on my walking, biking and swimming. He had a challenging surgery with my deformed leg, and the results were a total success. I highly recommend him.
      in Lombard, IL |
      I have had 2 surgeries with Dr. Alden, and have had fantastic results with both. I would recommend Dr. Alden for either hip or knee replacements.

      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.
