I believe in treating patients conservatively and relying on surgery only when necessary. I try to give patients the information they need to make an informed decision about their treatment and healthcare.

Dr. Bain was my surgeon for a complete knee replacement. I find him to be very thorough. He's a great doctor and I felt he always answered my questions.

Terribly BRIEF follow-up with provider. Was told to get MRI, but little info on HOW or WHERE. Eventually got paperwork. Have not seen X-ray that provider requested.

Dr. Beier, has finally come back to Gurnee! He did total knee replacement August 22, 2017 on me. When he left for Lincolnshire I was devastated because I knew I would be needing the other knee done. I patiently waited and he's back now! He is a fantastic Doctor! He is the best orthopedic surgeon that I know of. And X is great too!
