Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

A Message from Our Chair: Terrance D. Peabody, MD

Welcome to the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine website.

Our department is in a period of exciting growth. We have added five new faculty members in 2017-2018. Many coming from academic medical centers, these physicians are exceptional teachers and clinicians, and have contributed greatly to the development of our comprehensive orthopaedics practice. To me, our growth shows Northwestern’s long-term commitment to having a world-class Orthopaedics program for education, research, and patient care.

The experience of residents and fellows in our programs is truly unique. In addition to working with our expanding group of talented faculty members, our residentsand fellows have an opportunity to learn in a variety of care environments and treat diverse patient populations. This is thanks to our department’s many partner hospitalsAnn & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Jesse Brown Westside VA Medical Center, and John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

I hope you find our site informative and encourage you to contact me or any of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery faculty with any additional questions.
