Meet Peter Hoepfner

Biography

Dr. Hoepfner is dual board-certified in orthopaedic surgery and in hand and upper extremity surgery. He has published numerous articles in leading medical journals and serves as an instructor of hand injuries for the national hand surgery organization where he teaches the most current techniques in treating complex wrist, elbow and shoulder injuries. Dr. Hoepfner was on the Northwestern University Medical School faculty and holds a patent for an implant in thumb arthritis.

Whether using a surgical or nonsurgical approach, the appropriate treatment is tailored to each patient. As an expert in open and arthroscopic surgery, Dr. Hoepfner also specializes in carpal tunnel release, cubital tunnel release, sports injuries, fractures, dislocations, arthritis, tennis elbow, and complex elbow and wrist reconstruction. He also has specialized experience with complicated surgical reconstructions for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. In many difficult cases, he has enhanced his patient’s quality of life and independence.

With a focus on restoring function and eliminating pain with the newest, least invasive methods possible, Dr. Hoepfner is often referred complicated upper extremity cases from other orthopedic surgeons. He performs all of his own surgeries and is one of the few surgeons in the Chicago area who performs total wrist replacements. Dr. Hoepfner also offers injections with platelet-rich plasma to stimulate tissue healing.

Board-certified in the evaluation of disability and impairment, Dr. Hoepfner is known to provide highly respected opinions when performing independent medical evaluations at the request of the medico-legal community.
