in Huntley, IL |
I first became associated with Dr. Izquierdo during my son's Sr. year in High School Football (2 years prior). Over the summer camp my son dislocated his shoulder and tore his sub scapula. The Dr. worked with us to get him through the season and the repair. He was so great that I sought him out when I detached my pectoral tendon from my shoulder while exercising. He was one of the few doctors that had don that surgery in the past. He gave me a clear vision of what to expect in terms of sur
in Mchenry, IL |
I have unfortunately needed shoulder surgery twice on my right shoulder as I tore the tendon in the same place approx. a year apart. Dr. Izquierdo used the same incision sites for the 2nd surgery to minimize scaring & you can barely see the scars. This past July I took a fall & while trying to protect my right shoulder, I tore the labrum in my left shoulder, among other issues we later found. I have made complete recoveries from all 3 surgeries. An experienced, caring physician. Rare these days.
in Crystal Lake, IL |
Thanks to Dr. Izquierdo and the entire team at Ortho Illinois, both my right and left rotator cuff surgeries were a huge success. After a few months of physical therapy and some continued exercises at home, I feel like I'm back to 100%!
in Spring Grove, IL |
Dr. Izquierdo did a great job on my shoulder repair. He is really easy to talk to and gives good information about diagnosis. Recovery and physical therapy was planned by Dr. He provides detailed instructions to Physical Therapist to follow. Outstanding doctor and surgeon. I will go back to him again if needed and highly recommend him.
Crystal Lake, IL |
Dr. Izquierdo does a great job as a surgeon and a communicator. Everything went exactly as described, except I was released a month earlier than initially anticipated. He is easy to talk to and answers questions in plain language. The staff was fast and helpful. I have recommended him to friends and family and have never heard anything but very positive feedback.
Dundee, IL |
Best doctor I know, I have been through 2 Shoulder surgeries and 1 Knee surgery with him. He has always explained everything throughly and made sure I understood what was going on and all of my options. He is extremely professional and he cares...He wants to fix the issue and make sure you are pain free and not have any issues. I wouldn't recommend anyone else. He is the best doctor out there!
in Tucson, AZ |
Very good doctor! I had a complete tear in my rotator cuff, supraspinatus. He repaired it the end of October 2016. I received excellent post op care, and physical therapy that has really helped. I was so blessed to find Dr. Izquierdo because I actually live in Tucson , Arizona and happened to be temporarily living in Illinois when the need for surgery was imminate. Thank you, Dr. Izquierdo!

Dr Izquierdo is the only surgeon in the region who could fix my shoulder replacement. The doctor at MCO tried to send me to the city for a second opinion but Rush told me to see Dr. I and I'm glad I did because now I feel great!!
in Mchenry, Illinois |
About 10 years ago, I had a large tear on my rotator cuff which Dr. Isquierdo repaired. Being in construction and having constant movement with my shoulder every work day, a solid repair was vital. After ten years, my shoulder still feels great with excellent mobility. Although my physical therapy after surgery was a big factor, without his expertise and skilled hands I would not have had amazing results that allowed me to carry on my profession and be so active every day.
in Mchenry, IL |
He is an excellent and professional doctor and surgeon! He is understanding and sensitive and his staff is also professional and friendly! A very positive experience!
in Mount Prospect, IL |
I had surgery on my shoulder for a torn rotator cuff in August. Dr. Izquierdo was referred to me by my sister and a friend of hers. I am a nurse and Dr. Izquierdo met all of my high expectations. I had minimal pain, tiny incisions,and wonderful care. You have a large support group in his staff available to you weeks before surgery and after. I would recommend Dr. Izquierdo and Orthoillinois Group very highly. And he's gorgeous,besides!
