In Celebration of the Life of Robert M. Patek (March 1, 1957 to September 28, 2012)
On Friday morning Dr. Robert Patek one of the founders of Illinois Bone and Joint Institute passed away. For those of us who knew Dr. Patek... he was a great husband, father, friend, and physician. Bob was a man who knew how to love, forgive, inspire and lead.
He will be missed, but never forgotten.

The US contingent has just returned from the International Triathlon Union World Championships held in Vancouver, British Columbia. Despite very cold and rainy conditions, this was one of the more successful championships in many years. Andrew Hunt, MD, served as the Head Team Physician for the US squad as part of his duties as Medical Director for USA Triathlon, a post he has held since 2005. Team USA encompassed the Elite Men's and Women's teams, some of whose members will also compete for the US Olympic Team in Beijing this summer. Also included on the Vancouver team were the National Junior, U-23 squads, and top age-group amateurs competing for their respective world titles.
Dr. Hunt is a Sports Medicine physician with the Glenview/Wilmette division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute. He has been on the medical staff for the Pan American Games in Rio Di Janeiro, Brazil since 2007. He also currently serves as Head Team physician for several local high schools and is an Assistant Team Physician for Northwestern University Athletics.
