Spotlight on Pediatric Orthopedic Injuries Shines on World Pediatric Bone & Joint Day

Posted in What's New, Orthopedic News on Friday, 17 October 2014


While many adults have experienced some type of orthopedic injury, approximately 3.5 million children in the US have experienced an injury that causes musculoskeletal issues. The Bone & Joint Initiative recognizes the specific medical needs of children and has dedicated October 19th as World Pediatric Bone & Joint Day (PB&J). The theme of this year’s celebration is “The Adolescent Female Athlete Triad” and is intended to shed light on the prevention and treatment of pediatric orthopedic injuries.

Almost one-third of all injuries incurred in childhood are sports-related injuries, with the most common being strains and sprains. Obviously, some sports are more dangerous than others. For example, contact sports such as football result in a higher number of injuries than a non-contact sport such as swimming. However, all sports have a potential for injury, whether from the trauma of contact with other players or from misuse of a body part. A pediatric orthopedic physician is the most-skilled and experienced doctor to evaluate and treat musculoskeletal (bone, joint, or muscle) problems in a child. This type of doctor differs from a regular orthopedic surgeon, as they limit their medical practice to patients 18 and under.

Whether on the playground, in the pool or on the field, orthopedic injuries in children can happen anywhere. Children’s musculoskeletal issues are different from those of an adult because children are still growing and their body's response to injury, infection, or deformity is very different than what would be seen in an adult.

The most common orthopedic issues that arise in children are limb and spine deformities (clubfoot, scoliosis, limb length differences), gait abnormalities (limping), broken bones and bone or joint infections and tumors.

In recent years, the primary focus of pediatric orthopedics has been on childhood injury prevention, with the hopes of educating coaches, parents and children alike on how to avoid many injuries from the start.

IBJI Supports World Spine Day to "Straighten Up And Move"

Posted in What's New, Orthopedic News on Wednesday, 15 October 2014


On October 16th, IBJI will join in celebrating World Spine Day to raise awareness of spine health, as part of National Bone and Joint Health Awareness Month. This year’s theme is “Straighten Up and Move,” recognizing the importance of proper posture and movement in maintaining good spinal health.

The back is a complex network of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. In some cases, sports injuries or accidents cause back pain and other times even simple motions, like picking something up off the floor, can lead to pain in the back.

Since the back is so intricate, there are many types of spinal disorders. The most common ones include back pain, neck pain, scoliosis and disc disease. Disorders of the spine can affect a person’s overall health, including their ability to work and enjoy normal everyday routines.

Poor posture and inactivity can contribute to the development of back pain and other spinal disorders. Approximately 31 million Americans experience low-back pain and it is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease. Americans spend about $50 billion on products and services to help reduce back pain each year.

In today’s world, with the large amount of time people spend slouched in front of a computer, repeated poor posture can lead to back pain over time. In an effort to prevent back injuries and pain, try to maintain a healthy diet and weight, be physically active – get lots of exercise that strengthens your core, stretch before physical activity, be mindful of standing up straight, use smart lifting techniques and wear comfortable, supportive footwear.

If you do experience back pain, the team of orthopaedic professionals at IBJI are available to help assess your condition and work with you to customize a treatment plan. Spinal health is very important to our entire team – from surgeons and pain management specialists to therapists and physician assistants. We take pride in staying current on the latest developments and technologies in pain treatment and educating our patients on spinal health, injury prevention and treatment options.

So, remember to “Straighten Up and Move” for good spinal health!

Steven Mardjetko, MD Named "Spine Surgeon to Know"

Posted in What's New, In the News, Morton Grove Division on Sunday, 12 October 2014


dr steven mardjetko

IBJI is well known among patients and the orthopaedic community for its expertise in treating spinal conditions. In observance of World Spine Day on October 16, IBJI is proud to share the news that one of its spine specialists, Dr. Steven Mardjetko, has earned not just one, but three major honors for his exceptional work.

The first honor was bestowed last month at the Scoliosis Research Society Meeting, where Dr. Mardjetko received the Walter P. Blount Humanitarian Award. This award honors those who act generously out of their sense of service to larger social and professional goals, and whose work in spinal deformity provides significant service to others, including international and charity care.

For years, Dr. Mardjetko has volunteered his spinal care expertise in regions where advanced specialty care is scarce. He was instrumental in the creation of the Cali Columbia Pediatric Spinal Deformity Medical Mission. Since 2008, he has also been an instrumental part of the Bulgaria Global Outreach program. As a mentor to his orthopaedic colleagues, Dr. Mardjetko has helped train spine surgeons to operate independently and to help children in need of corrective spinal deformity surgery.

Dr. Mardjetko was also recently named to Becker’s Spine Review 2014 list of “240 Spine Surgeons to Know” and the publication’s list of “62 Scoliosis-Focused Spine Surgeons to Know.” Becker’s recognized Dr. Mardjetko, in part, for his expertise as a spinal deformities and pediatric orthopedic specialist and for his work to help parents check their children for scoliosis.

Congratulations to Dr. Mardjetko and to all of his colleagues invested in diagnosing and correcting spinal conditions and abnormalities so that patients can enjoy their lives.

IBJI Celebrates World Arthritis Day

Posted in What's New, Orthopedic News, Move Better Blog on Saturday, 11 October 2014

This week, as we continue our focus on National Bone & Joint Health Awareness Month, we celebrate World Arthritis Day on October 12th. Arthritis is characterized by the feeling of pain, swelling, stiffness or decreased range of motion in your joints.  

Arthritic conditions are the second most common musculoskeletal diseases among adults and are the most common cause of disability among adults in this country.  They affect an estimated 50 million people, including 300,000 children and are expected to soar, according to the nationally recognized Experts in Arthritis education program.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, while Rheumatoid and Juvenile arthritis also affect many people.  Osteoarthritis involves damage to your joint's cartilage, resulting from bone grinding directly on bone, which can cause pain and restricted movement. This wear and tear can occur over many years, or it can be accelerated by a joint injury or infection.  

In rheumatoid arthritis, the body's immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule, a membrane that encloses all the joint parts. This lining becomes inflamed and swollen and can destroy cartilage and bone within the joint.

Some risk factors for developing arthritis include obesity, genetics, age and history of joint injuries and trauma.  Arthritis can be physically debilitating for those that suffer from it, limiting normal work and daily activity and the ability to be physically active, all leading to more adverse health conditions.

Arthritis is often noted as a chronic condition, but the standard of care and treatment has evolved and now the focus of care involves screening for risk factors and focusing on early prevention and intervention.  It is vital for a patient to alert their doctor to any early signs of joint pain or injury, so treatment can begin immediately and improve quality of life.

IBJI rheumatologists (physicians specializing in the non-surgical management of arthritis) use a team approach, working with orthopaedic partners, podiatrists, pain specialists, nurses, physical and occupational therapists and others to slow or halt disease progression, improve function and control pain.  

Our team of professionals, along with our innovative medical and therapeutic treatment plans, restore flexibility and strength, diminish pain and enable those living with arthritis to enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle.

Osteoarthritis Hip Pain: Symptoms and Treatment

Posted in Orthopedics on Tuesday, 30 September 2014

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It is also termed as ‘degenerative joint disorder’ or age related arthritis, as it develops when people age. The cartilage functions as ‘shock absorbers’ that gives a cushion effect to the end of the bones and prevents the bones from directly rubbing against each other, thereby reducing the friction within joints.

IBJI Kicks Off Bone & Joint Health National Awareness Month

Posted in What's New, Orthopedic News, Orthopedics, Move Better Blog on Sunday, 28 September 2014

It’s an exciting time of year when we join in celebrating Bone & Joint Health National Awareness Month during the month of October - an annual global event.

Throughout the world, there are events planned by individuals and organizations, all designed to raise awareness of prevention, disease management, treatments and advances in several areas of bone and joint health. Here at the Illinois Bone & Joint Institute, we will take the opportunity throughout the month to highlight several key areas of bone and joint disorders affecting millions of people including arthritis, spinal health, trauma injuries, pediatric bone and joint health, and osteoporosis, among others.

Nearly half of the adult population in America is affected by musculoskeletal (bone and joint) conditions and these conditions are the most widespread cause of severe long-term pain and disability. Even with the large number of people affected, research funding for bone and joint conditions is currently less than 2% of the National Institutes of Health annual budget, according to the Bone and Joint Initiative. In addition, the aging boomer generation - which consists of people aged 45 to 64 - has seen a sharp increase in musculoskeletal disease treatment costs and lost wages, a trend that is predicted to continue for the next several decades.

Bone & Joint Health National Awareness Month is an important event that allows IBJI to help further educate and empower our patients in taking an active role in their decisions of care and treatment. Bone and joints, along with muscles and ligaments, create function and movement in the body. When they work together in a state of health, it allows for a quality of life that is active and healthy!

Look to our future posts as we take an in-depth look at key bone and joint health issues and the treatment and prevention associated with each.
