Benjamin A. Goldberg, M.D. is a Board Certified Fellowship Trained Orthopaedic Surgeon. I have lived in Chicago over twenty-five years.

My clinical expertise includes reconstruction of complex shoulder and elbow disorders as well as general orthopaedics. I commonly perform rotator cuff repairs, shoulder replacement, shoulder and elbow trauma, shoulder and elbow instability, fractures, frozen shoulder, and complex revision surgeries. I also deal with tennis elbow, stiffness, and elbow arthritis. I also practice general orthopaedic surgery and fracture care.

As an experienced Orthopaedic Surgeon, I take a cooperative approach to caring for my patients and utilize joint patient/physician decision-making.

I believe the most important aspects of providing quality care are listening to the needs of patients; thorough testing; communication; patient education; prevention of musculoskeletal injuries; presenting treatment options to the patient; establishing a relationship with my patients/involving patients in treatment plan.

I am a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons.

I am an Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Illinois-Chicago Medical Center.

I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you, and to helping you achieve your best possible musculoskeletal health.
