Dr Lee repaired a severed tendon in my foot. The injury was originally misdiagnosed by another Dr. As result the tendon had retracted 4-6cm and a graph was a real possibility. The surgery by Dr Lee was an overwhelming success with no graph! The entire Rush team is so professional and the entire process was seamless.

Excellent listener. Explained my condition in terms that I understood. I also liked that he didn’t order X-ray this time for a repeat therapy Session.

In May of 2012 Dr Lee performed a reconstruction of my left foot and ankle. An extensive surgery to say the least. After the surgery, I asked Dr Lee to prescribe blood thinners as I was overweight, on the pill and now in a non weight bearing cast. A perfect storm to form a blood clot.I was informed by Dr Lee that blood thinners "Were not needed after a reconstruction." "If you would have had a knee replacement you would need blood thinners." Weeks later I was in the ER with a blood clot in my left leg that started in the lower leg and ended at my pelvis. I also had pulmonary emboli in both lungs (saddle embolism) cheerily called a 'widow maker' as only 1% of patient's survive. With that, came the insertion of an IVC filter to catch future blood clots. I NOW am on blood thinners for life, require diuretics, went into heart failure, had a mild infarct and tomorrow am having a cardiac catheterization to rule out pulmonary hypertension. Hope your life has been better than mine Dr Lee.

Follow-up to my son’s Jan.10th left ankle ligament surgery that Dr. Lee performed. Dr. Lee examined the ankle, we talked about the PT we’ve been doing including note from PT, then discussed how my son should progress & future PT benefits. Dr. Lee told us where he felt the ankle was currently at.

During this pandemic Dr. Lee saw me quickly and efficiently and gave me great news! He was the surgeon who operated on my ankle a few years ago and I knew he is the surgeon I would go to if anything else happened. I trust him completely. He is professional, and an amazing surgeon!!! I highly recommend him.

I came to Dr Lee 6+ months following the initial reconstruction surgery of my left ankle. Dr Lee had taken a quick look at my x-rays and had formulated a solid plan. Dr Lee’s confidence and wonderful bedside manor is unmatched. De Lee and his team are committed to you and your best possible outcome.

Dr Simon Lee is a master of solutions. I've had 12 surgeries over the last 40 years to try and correct a birth defect that put my ankles off-center from my foot. All which have been unsuccessful. My last foot specialist Dr ( in Arlington Heights ) told me, 9 yrs ago, nothing else could be done except amputation. Not willing to accept that diagnosis, I finally found Dr Simon Lee. He told me there is always a solution, but not amputation in my situation. In 2018, he took out all the old hardware and reconstructed the right foot to provide a stable foundation. In 2019, he replaced my ankle with an artificial ankle. For the first time in 70 years I am now able to walk pain free. I am now looking forward to surgery on my left foot and ankle replacement in 2020. I truly have never met a greater master of his craft and recommend Dr Simon Lee with the highest degree of respect.
