Expanded Pediatric Orthopedic Service

Meet IBJI’s pediatric orthopedic physicians.

Illinois Bone & Joint Institute (IBJI), the largest independent, physician-owned orthopedic practice in Illinois, has expanded its pediatric orthopedic services. IBJI is proud to offer the services of four board-certified pediatric orthopedic surgeons as well as one pediatrician with specialty practice in weight management and metabolic health. With this expansion, IBJI is able to serve pediatric patients at more locations and provide a new metabolic health pediatric specialty to put children on track for a healthy life.

Now Treating in Elmhurst

Hinsdale Orthopaedics, a division of IBJI, is proud to welcome two pediatric orthopedic physicians to our Elmhurst office. Dr. Albert Knuth and Dr. Todd Simmons originally joined IBJI with the merger of Orthopaedic Surgery Specialists in August of 2020. Drs. Knuth and Simmons will expand their practice to serve patients at IBJI’s Elmhurst Doctors’ Office starting on Monday May 3, 2021 in addition to treating patients at both the Fox River Grove and Park Ridge offices.

Dr. Knuth is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in pediatric orthopedics, limb lengthening, club foot, scoliosis, hip dysplasia, sports injuries and reconstructive surgery. He has been practicing in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago since 1998. His special interests are pediatric fracture care, club foot, scoliosis, and limb length inequality.

Dr. Simmons is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, specializing in pediatric orthopedic care, limb lengthening, club foot, scoliosis, hip dysplasia, sports injuries, reconstruction and fracture treatment. In addition to his extensive research efforts, Dr. Simmons has presented on many topics including pediatric and adult orthopedic treatments and procedures.

Pediatric Metabolic Health Management Service

Additionally, IBJI is now offering metabolic health management to pediatric patients through OrthoHealth, a physician-led medical wellness program which guides patients through small, sustainable changes to daily habits that result in a healthier weight and overall lifestyle.

In March 2021, Dr. Lynn Gettleman Chehab joined IBJI’s OrthoHealth team. Dr. Gettleman Chehab is a pediatrician with a master’s in Public Health and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. She has focused on healthy weight management at both the individual and community level for over 20 years. With Dr. Gettleman Chehab, IBJI has enhanced our pediatric service by providing pediatric patients with an expert in youth diet, sleep, stress and the impact these components can have on weight and its overall effects on musculoskeletal health.

IBJI Proudly Serves Pediatric Patients

These new physicians proudly join our existing IBJI pediatricians Dr. Andrea Kramer and Dr. Steven Mardjetko who have been serving the pediatric population of IBJI for several years.

Dr. Andrea Kramer is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in pediatric orthopedics. She provides treatments for all major orthopedic-related congenital disorders, including hip dysplasia, club feet, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and Down syndrome. She also provides care for scoliosis, traumatic injuries, and sports injuries. Dr. Kramer offers the most up-to-date surgical and clinical techniques, including the latest in fracture fixation and bracing.

Dr. Steven Mardjetko is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in treating spine conditions, with an emphasis on pediatric spinal deformities, including early onset spinal deformity. He provides the gamut of treatment options for very young children, including advanced techniques not widely available. Because he treats adults as well as children, Dr. Mardjetko is able to understand how a spinal condition will affect a child later in life and to provide treatment that keeps long-term outcomes in mind. He honed his abilities caring for children with rare conditions for 17 years at Shriners Hospital for Children in Chicago.

IBJI is home to a staff of expert physicians and specialists that are committed to a comprehensive approach to treatment from diagnostics to treatment and rehabilitation.
