What People Say About Dr. Marc Fajardo, MD

Dr Fajardo treated my son for a broken thumb resulting from a lacrosse injury. He was able to repair the broken tip of his thumb via surgery and explained his treatment plan and what the outcome and recovery timeline would be. He ensured our son was fully healed and was excellent at explaining my son's condition throughout his treatment. We are grateful that Dr. Fajardo was our son's physician. I would highly recommend Dr. Fajardo for anyone who has a hand injury and needs a top surgeon.

Dr. Fajardo and his team took care of me when I fell off my snowmobile and landed on my wrist. I was in Wisconsin at the time, called immediately for an ortho back home and his office was the 1st available location. It was a haul for me but I am so happy with the decision I made. Surgery was the best option. This being my first major injury he, along with his staff, made me feel comfortable and at ease. Surgery went great and I am healing every single day. Less than 3 months later I am 100% healed and with the help of therapy I am doing great. Making follow up appointments were never an issue. Most appointments were on time and I was in and out. I highly recommend Dr. Fajardo.

Dr. Fajardo is a great doctor. The top of my thumb was cut off and he sewed it back on. He also repaired tendons and my nailbed. I always knew what was going on. He does put you at ease by his knowledge, along with a great staff. I highly recommend Dr. Fajardo.

Dr. Fajardo was excellent in all ways. Ditto his team. Ditto all of the office personnel I dealt with. Add the surgical center and everyone there to that.

Dr. Fajardo corrected a nonunion radius fracture for my 7 year-old. I could not be more grateful. It was a complicated case, where my son did not have full use of his arm and now he does. The surgery went well, the bone healed, pain free. :-) Dr. Fajardo has a very nice bedside manner and great expertise. He answered all our questions. He made time to operate on my son promptly as we came from abroad to see him and managed follow up care remotely via email. That was really great.

I have been treated twice by Dr. Fajardo. The first time for a wrist fracture 3 years ago. Then just recently, a torn tendon on my thumb. Surgery went well and I have full use of my hand again!

I would give Dr. Fajardo and his staff 10 stars if I could!! Extremely kind, professional, and knowledgeable. He did a serious hand surgery for me which the results turned out excellent, he was also affordable which is important as I didn’t have health insurance. He also gave me a shoulder injection for bursitis which I am thrilled about- I can’t wait to have my should mobility back!! Him and his staff are also very gentle. Thank you again Dr. Fajardo and your staff, Highly recommend!

Dr. Fajardo and his staff were extremely kind and professional. They listened to me, heard my concerns and were able to get me scheduled for surgery within 2 weeks to get my issues taken care of. Mostly on time for appointments and very professional. Huge clean offices. Ease of scheduling an appointment between 2 offices. Highly recommend Dr. Mark and his staff!

Took my 5 year old after he broke his arm in two places. Dr. Fajardo got us in the next day (I called from the ER to make the appointment) for an appointment, and two days later for surgery. He even made sure my son was the 2nd surgery in the AM so he wouldn't have to go all day with nothing to eat. Follow up appointments were a breeze - no long waits. X-ray is in-house. Billing has gone smoothly. Other clinical staff was great. Would go back to Dr. Fajardo again (hopefully we don't need to)!

Child sports injury resulting in broken bone. We were able to see Dr. Fajardo through Hinsdale Orthopaedics very quickly when other providers wanted to schedule us some days out. Surgery performed just a few days after initial appointment. Incredible service and care. Child has had a wonderful recovery. Could not be more satisfied or relieved.

Dr Fajardo performed carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand 3 weeks ago. The procedure was quick and painless and I experienced very little post op discomfort. I did not require any pain medication. I am very pleased with the care provided me by Dr. Fajardo and his assistants. My surgery cured virtually all of my symptoms and I consider the operation a complete success.

I broke my left distal radius on Sunday, saw Dr. Fajardo on Monday and he was able to arrange for my surgery on Tuesday. The surgery went smoothly with no complications, given he had to insert 8 pins and a plate. His staff was very helpful, always returning my calls and answering questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Fajardo.
