Meet Andrea Kramer


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

She believes that as a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon she has special responsibilities to the children that she treats. Not only does she make certain that parents understand the treatment options presented, but she also ensures that each of her patients gets the personal attention they need so that they are comfortable and fully understand what happens during every step of the process, from exam to diagnosis to treatment.

Dr. Kramer is the Director of the Pediatric Orthopedic Center of Excellence at Advocate Children’s Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois and she frequently lectures for courses presented by the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America. Currently, she is conducting research in the use of a brace instead of a cast when treating femur (thigh bone) fractures in newborn to five year-old children, a technique that spares the patient from needing surgery.

As a dedicated athlete, her appreciation of physical fitness and well being help fuel her commitment to improve her patients’ conditions. The mother of two boys, Dr. Kramer helps parents make treatment decisions for their children as if she were making them for her own.
