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.
