What People Say About Dr. Roger Chams, MD

It is no joy to see your 15 year old take an unnecessary hit to the knee during a H.S. football game. Dr. Chams was our Guardian Angel as he was there at the football game, attended to my son immediately. He spoke to my husband and I, explaining the suspected diagnosis, that he would ice it, give him crutches and schedule a Smart MRI vs. the expensive trip to the hospital via ambulance that night. Dr. Chams was very Caring and Knowledgeable. He performed a very successful Meniscus surgery.

Dr. chams corrected both my right and left rotator cuff tears and a right bicep reconnection. I’m now back to hitting the golf ball 325 yards. He is the best !

I saw Dr Chams after receiving sub par treatment from 2 other orthopedic surgeons for a shoulder injury. Dr. Chams was knowledgeable, caring, and did not rush into surgery. He referenced many studies to back up his decision. He referred me to a high quality physical therapy clinic. However, therapy was not enough. Dr. Chams then performed a manipulation procedure that along with therapy resulted in a full recovery with normal range of motion, strength, and function. I cannot recommend Dr. Chams

Im a 55 year old marathon and ultra marathon runner that NEVER had knee issues. In October I felt a “pop” and knew something wasn’t right. I reached out to a friend in the “industry” for a referral for an orthopedic surgeon. Without hesitation I was given Dr. Chams name. I made an appointment for evaluation, MRI and X-RAY. One week later I was in for a surgery on my torn meniscus. Dr Chams and ALL his staff went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and at ease.

I sought a second opinion from Dr. Chams when my issue wasn't resolved by another orthopedic and I felt that I wasn't getting the best treatment. After reviewing my scans and the various things I had done to correct my problem he suggested surgery which my previous ortho didn't want to do. Turns out my problem was a little more than the scans let on. Dr. Chams fixed the issue & I haven't had problems since. Dr. Chams also fixed my husbands shoulder as well.

Dr. Chams and his team are by far the best! I was faced with bilateral tears in my rotator cuffs and knew I had to have back-to-back surgeries. Dr. Chams has an impeccable reputation and following and both of my sons had previous surgeries under the care of Dr. Chams. The true "team" approach to my care was everything I expected. He is very passionate, easy to talk to, listens to the details on how you feel and truly is a great physician.

When it comes to treating my knees and shoulders, Dr. Chams is the one physician I trust the most. For years he has cared for me and treated various injuries I have suffered through. He always balances conservative medicine with reality of what it will take to get me back to 100% even if that is surgery. Caring and personable.

Dr. Chams repaired a complex, global rotator cuff tear I had sustained in my shoulder. The surgery was very involved, with multiple structural injuries. I am extremely satisfied with my current post-operative outcome, and continue to make progress toward full functional recovery. His staff is excellent, always answered my questions and handled my insurance paperwork and requests. His surgical skill is excellent and I would highly recommend Dr. Chams.

Dr. Roger Chams is hands down the best orthopedic surgeon I could have asked for. After having three different shoulder repairs due to being a Varsity ice hockey player at New Trier, I would never even think twice about finding a new doctor. The staff members are beyond welcoming and Dr. Chams is a class act. I would not recommend any other surgeon to help me through my processes.

Dr Chams is the most talented surgeon I have ever encountered. I was told by 3 other surgeons my injury would not heal even with surgery. Not only was he very confident he could help, but he did so in a timely fashion. He operated on me 2 years ago and my knee still feels great !!!!! I cant thank him enough.

As a senior citizen, I worry about having surgery (don't we all?), but my knee scope and recovery have been easy, thanks to the expertise and care of Dr. Chams and his team. To be sure, I followed their directions and did the physical therapy as suggested, which was probably a large factor in my recovery. In the weeks following surgery, I was impressed by their prompt responses to my questions and their obvious concern for my proper care. My only negative might be wait time before an appointment

Dr. Chams and his staff did an excellent job guiding me through the surgical process of repairing my injured knee. I'm very fortunate to have experienced the caring and compassionate team at the IBJI libertyville office and Hawthorne surgery center. The entire surgical process was seamless and I am very fortunate to have met Dr. Chams and his staff.

Highly recommend. Confident in Dr. Chams and his rehab team at IBJI. Full Rotator cuff tear repaired and long head bicep tendon reattached. 2 days on pain meds after surgery. Followed instructions 100% on care. After 5 1/2 months released from physical therapy. Flexibility back to normal. Expect full strength in coming months.

Three years after my shoulder replacement by Chams, after being butchered by Chams, three years of pain. I had a complete shoulder replacement at Rush/Oak Park, I am now going on four weeks post-op and already the pain is better. Four years ago Chams told me I needed a knee replacement, one year ago I went to Rush and was told my knee wasn't that bad and to come back in five years. Do not trust Chams!
