Our OrthoSync patients are part of an innovative new program that starts with a total musculoskeletal evaluation before surgery to create a customize care plan specifically for you. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach, OrthoSync strives to take into account all of the factors that can influence your recovery. Ultimately this will allow your physician & their team as well as your physical therapist to provide you with important information about OrthoSync rehabilitation partners to help guide you through your recovery for a great outcome.


After scheduling your surgery, our OrthoSync Coordinator will call you to arrange for a time & place for the Pre-Operative Evaluation. This evaluation is performed by an Illinois Bone & Joint Institute Physical Therapist in our Physical and Occupational Therapy centers.

The Pre-Operative evaluation take an average of 30-45 minutes and consists of mostly questions about social, cognitive, functional & medical factors that can affect your recovery. During the evaluation, our therapist will provide you with recommendations for your post-surgery recovery and the locations and providers of your rehabilitation.


After finishing the evaluation, you will be given your Customized Care Plan – a summary of your results – and this information will also be available to your doctor & their team, as well as the OrthoSync partners supporting your recovery.

The healthcare providers involved in your recovery are all working towards a central goal: providing you the best possible outcome.

OrthoSync is a collaborative effort by Illinois Bone & Joint Institute and our excellent partners that provide post-surgical care throughout Chicagoland. This partnership allows for increased communication that can help avoid preventable issues such as falls, infections and re-injury.

After your surgery, your healthcare providers will complete occasional surveys informing your care team of your progress. This creates awareness and understanding of your current status and upcoming steps so that you have the best care available.
