Leslie D. Ferrigan, PT, DPT has been practicing in orthopedics for 30 years, with the last 26 years in her own successful private practice. She is now excited to have joined Illinois Bone and Joint Institute on 8/1/19. She will be the Facility Manager to this new Wauconda location still treating patients and overseeing daily operations. Leslie has enjoyed treating various musculoskeletal diagnoses including, but not limited to total joint replacement, ACL/meniscus repairs, rotator cuff repairs as well as TMJ dysfunction and neck/low back surgeries/injuries. She is committed to designing a comprehensive rehabilitation program for each of her patients and their specific needs. She feels it is most important to listen, communicate and collaborate with each patient throughout the treatment program to fully ensure she addresses their specific goals. This has been the key to her successful outcomes during her practice.
As a former division one collegiate cheerleader, she had suffered injuries and a shoulder surgery that led her on her path. She has treated several recreational and all star cheerleaders for their return to sport. She also still stays quite involved by coaching a youth recreational team of the local Lake County Stallions League. She is the Director of Safety currently for the league. In addition, she consults in safety, proper alignment and technique for youth, high school and college cheerleading teams.
In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and their three kids. Together they enjoy skiing, boating and family time as much as possible.
