Specializing in General Orthopedics, Hand Surgery, Joint Replacement and Reconstruction

To schedule an appointment, please call 708-423-8440.

Dr. John McClellan offers special expertise in minimally invasive knee and hip replacement procedures. He has perfected endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery, a treatment approach that dramatically shortens recovery time and allows most patients to return to work in about a week.

He prefers these non-and minimally invasive options to help better manage pain and improve joint mobility. Other options may include medication, steroid injection therapy, visco-supplementation and arthroscopy. Dr. McClellan's comprehensive, personal approach considers age, lifestyle, activity level and his patients' expectations prior to any surgical intervention.

His philosophy on patient care is to treat his patients as he would a member of his own family.
