Harpreet S. Basran, MD, is a fellowship-trained, board-certified physician specializing in Sports Medicine and minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures to treat injuries in the shoulders, hips, knees and ankles. After years of playing and watching sports, the Chicagoland native felt that a career in sports medicine was a natural fit. He received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and completed two fellowships; a Sports Medicine, Knee, Hip and Shoulder Arthroscopy Fellowship, from the University of Chicago and a second fellowship at Cornell University Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

Upon completing both fellowships, Dr. Basran returned to Chicago to practice medicine and be closer to his family. He provides non-operative management for all orthopedic injuries, including cutting edge stem cell procedures and operative management for injuries such as meniscal tears, knee ligament damage, rotator cuff tears, and labral injuries.

Through compassion and understanding, Dr. Basran takes time to listen to his patients’ concerns and ensures that his clinical recommendations align with their goals. The strong connection he builds with his patients and community makes his work gratifying.

Dr. Basran has had the pleasure of working with local teams such as the Chicago Blackhawks, the U.S. World Cup Soccer Federation, and local high schools and colleges. He is inspired by the drive and ambition that athletes have for their sports and feels privileged to be a part of their lives and teams by providing orthopedic care. Dr. Basran shares their appreciation for sports; he enjoys playing basketball in his free time, working out and spending time with his family.

Patient Feedback

"There really are no words to describe the exceptional care that I received with Dr. Harpreet Basran and his staff. Dr. Basran and I have established a wonderful rapport with one another from the beginning. I have been able to share wonderful stories of my family with him as well as not so wonderful. He listened very patiently and compassionately when I told him about the death of my father. He also listened patiently and very happily when I told him about the wedding of one of my sons the engagement of the another son and the upcoming birth of our first grandchild! He is truly a gem amongst gems! I just had my six week post-op for my second shoulder surgery and you can always tell with him that his response is incredibly genuine and how happy he is with your recovery! He is always incredibly thorough with all of my exams as well. You never leave there with a question in your mind about how you were doing. I will not go anywhere else for myself or my family whenever we need orthopedic care! Every member of the staff is friendly professional and kind! And when you are uncomfortable and in pain that is the most wonderful welcome ever! When someone treats you patiently and kindly and compassionately when you are in pain. I recommend Dr. Basran to absolutely everybody! I really cannot thank him enough for getting me through 2020 with two shoulder surgeries! He is absolutely the most wonderful doctor ever!" – Cat C.
