Dr. Alexander C. Gordon, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in treating hip and knee conditions in adults. He is an expert in anterior approach hip replacement, which decreases post-operative pain and speeds recovery. Dr. Gordon also uses sensor-assisted techniques to perform knee replacement surgery that is fine- tuned for the specific patient.

His interest in science and helping people led Dr. Gordon to become a physician. He chose to specialize in orthopedics because it offers very tangible methods to help people relieve pain and to restore active lifestyles.

Dr. Gordon is currently helping develop a new form of sensor-guided knee replacement technology and is conducting a research collaboration with other surgeons to determine algorithms to optimize surgery using this device. As well, he helps train residents as a clinical assistant professor of orthopedics at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago.
