Orthopaedic surgeon, Joseph Thometz, MD, specializes in knee and shoulder disorders.

He utilizes a variety of noninvasive and minimally invasive options to manage pain and improve joint mobility, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, steroid injection therapy, and viscosupplementation.

Dr. Thometz is also an expert in arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and arthroscopic ligament reconstruction – both minimally invasive approaches that reduce postoperative pain and recovery time. For hip and knee replacement procedures, he prefers a minimally invasive technique. 

Dr. Thometz earned his medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School and completed his residency at Southern Illinois University. He went on to complete a sports medicine fellowship at the University of Minnesota.

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.
