Dr. Broderick's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Broderick "I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. After completing my bachelor of science in chemistry and biology at Quincy College I entered medical school at Loyola University of Chicago, where my sights and aspirations were on becoming the "team" physician for the Chicago Bears. This goal was quickly set aside after an early rotation in my medical student training with the neurosurgeons at Loyola. A long-time curiosity to observe a brain operation was made possible during this rotation and it changed the course of my medical career path. I was awed by the majesty of brain surgery and the supreme confidence and skills required of the neurosurgeons. During my residency at the University of Kentucky Medical Center I developed my love of the spinal surgical subspecialty within neurosurgery because of the amazing way a patient's life can be forever improved by successful spine surgery. After completing my residency in 1999 I began practicing as a neurosurgeon in the Chicago Northwest suburbs. Now, as part of the OrthoIllinois organization, I continue to practice my personal philosophy for treating patients: I treat each of them the way I would treat my own family. I believe patients are the center of the healthcare treatment "team" and all treatment decisions are made taking into consideration the patient's physical, emotional and psychological needs to achieve the best outcome possible. As a neurosurgeon I commonly confront life-threatening (brain tumor, trauma) and significantly life-altering (spinal fractures, severe disabling pain) medical conditions that create a chaotic, incredibly frightening medical crisis that requires fast decisions. It is during these times of crisis when the highest quality neurosurgeon rises above and leads the patient and family to a successful outcome. When I am not practicing medicine, I enjoy playing golf and traveling with my family as much as possible. I am a music buff and especially enjoy attending live performances and concerts. Thank you for entrusting me with your care. I look forward to meeting with you."

What People Say About Dr. Richard Broderick, MD

When I finally got him to talk as a doctor he must have told me 5 or 6 times he was a SURGEON and he could not...Read More
