    I went to Dr. Sheinkop for stem cell procedures on both my knees and a hip. It has been a lot of help and the relief has lasted over 1yr & 9 months plus. His background is what drew me to him and I could not be happier.

    Dr. Sheinkop performed double-knee replacement surgery on me in Oct. 2007. He argued that, after rehabbing one knee, I wouldn't want to do the 2nd knee (which I would have needed done in any case), and he was right. But, in the end, he inveigled me into the right decision.He also undertook at the same time a straightening of my very bowed legs, which ended up giving me nearly 4 yrs without any lower back pain.The latter has returned to a lesser degree, but the knees are still working fine today.

    Excellent surgeon with the ability to provide a perfect installation of a knee replacement. He uses an additional staff doctor for bedside follow-up and told me in advance his specialty is the surgery and he was weak on bedside.

    Dr. Sheinkop was never in the operating room when he claimed to be doing my mother's hip surgery. He left her in the care of a resident who didn't see the massive MRSA infection that occurred due to poor practices at Oak Park Hospital. She ended up with three additional hip surgeries to finally clear up the infection. She was hospitalized for over 3 months. It was hell. I would not trust this doctor at all.
    in Joliet, IL |
    I have been going to Dr. Sheinkop since 1987 and had reconstruction surgery in 1988 and double knee replacement in 1999. I have not seen him in about 8 or 9 years because I have never had any trouble with either of my knees. As far as I am concerned, he was the best and came highly recommended by Dr. Wolan back in 1987. I no I probably should see someone to see if everything is still ok with my knees, but there isn't anyone I feel I can trust as much as Dr. Sheinkop.
