UChicago Faculty Physicians who provide services at UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial are not employees or agents of UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial.

Hue H. Luu, MD, specializes in hip and knee replacements as well as the surgical care of bone and soft tissue tumors. He is an expert in both direct anterior approach and mini-posterior approach total hip replacements. Direct anterior approach total hip replacement is a more muscle sparing and less invasive technique that allows for a more rapid recovery.

He also uses the state of the art Robotic-Arm Assisted technology for total hip, total knee and partial knee replacement surgeries. Robotic assistance allows for more precision and less soft tissue damage. He strives to give outstanding care to his patients to help restore their quality of life and function. Dr. Luu works with a multidisciplinary physician team to provide comprehensive care for patients with benign and malignant musculoskeletal tumors.

His research interests include: the fundamental mechanisms regulating bone biology and bone regeneration, osteolysis in total joint replacement patients, and advances in gene therapy to study applications of bone biology in fracture care. Dr. Luu also has an interest in studying genes that control cancer metastasis, for the purpose of identifying new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for treating malignant cancers.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
