A clinically integrated network of physicians and providers employed by UChicago Medicine who offer care in inpatient, community, ambulatory, acute care or extended care settings.


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.
