Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Brander "My focus is on a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of joint pain and arthritis. I believe in first finding the exact cause of pain, and then  exhausting all nonsurgical treatments prior to considering surgery. I focus on exercise, physical therapy, integrative therapies, diet, medications, injectible agents, orthotics, patient education and surgery when indicated. I am involved in teaching and research at the University setting, and believe this helps me bring the state-of-the-art in care and treatment to the patient's bedside."

Patient Comments (4)
in Chicago, IL |
very with-it doctor
in Park Ridge, IL |
She is overloaded and doesn't have time to follow up with her patients. Terrible. I tried to get an appointment after having an allergic reaction to medication she prescribed and she didn't respond. Their nurse repainted with an apology that she never called me back. I'm looking. For care elsewhere, very disappointed.
