About Me

I have been in practice in the northern Illinois area now for over 25 years.
I treat all patients as we would family members and realize that when someone seeks the services of an orthopedic surgeon they are usually in pain and/or are very apprehensive about their condition. We therefore take the time to listen to the patient's complaints and concerns.

He was very thorough, but very patient in explaining everything and answering all my questions. He explained the options and things I could do in the meantime, prior to surgery. He is a very kind and compassionate doctor that gives you as much attention as you need. I would highly recommend him to everyone!

Dr. Collins is one of the best doctors that I ever experienced. He knew it was a torn rotator cuff the first time that I saw him. I had Xrays and a MRI to confirm it. Dr. Collins tried shots in the shoulder first to see if I could avoid surgery. Unfortunately, I needed the surgery. The surgery went great and every time I had an appointment, he spent a lot of time explaining what he did and what I would have to do to recover. You can do no better than Dr. Collins!

Dr. Collins has done reconstructive surgeries on both of my son's knees and has done cartilage meniscus (cartilage) surgery on both of my knees. We have both been very pleased with his services from diagnosis through follow up. Dr. Collins is knowledgeable, skillful, informative and personable. I would highly recommend

Dr. Collins is great. He is thorough and goes over everything with you. He loves his work and it shows in his wonderful attitude. After many years and many injuries which dr. Collins fixed I finally needed surgery which he performed. He cut off a bone spur and reattached my bicep tendon. The only medication I took was ibuprofen and I used a ice machine which circulates cold water through a pad. It was fantastic I couldn't believe it no more pain and I have full use of my shoulder now. He's great

My son had a sports injury and needed to be seem asap. Dr. Collins fit us in his busy schedule and never once made us feel rushed. He and his staff were wonderful throughout the surgery and during his recuperation. The healing process has been unbelievable and he is getting back to the sport he loves within half the estimated time. Dr. Collins is a wonderful doctor and we highly recommend him!

Dr. Roger Collins is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. When our son had a sports injury to his shoulder, Dr. Collins took us through the diagnosis, plan, and surgery, all with compassion and expertise. He, his office staff, and his surgical team were very organized, thorough, and took us through the process seamlessly. From the consult appt., through the surgical repair, and final P.T. post-op session, we felt that all of our son's & our concerns were professionally handled. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Very caring and thorough and refreshingly approachable. Explained surgery options prior to the procedure and diagnosis was 100% spot on. Operation was minimally invasive and post surgery recovery was fantastic with minimal pain. Office visits and physical therapy were a breeze and the entire staff were very friendly, caring and professional. Dr Collins is more of an artist as well as a surgeon and the total team there is wonderful. I will recommend him and his team to everyone. THANK YOU!!
