Top notch surgeon who actually cares about you.

Dr. Bach took extra time for me, helped me to see another specialist within his practice, and showed the type of care you wish all doctors would take the time to show. I know him from the successful surgery he has performed for two of my friends, and respect him for his effort to help me to get a solution for my knee/leg/hip issue.

Great surgeon

I had two knee scopes with meniscus repair right and left knee. Great outcome. Dr. Bach has been around for a long time and knows what he's doing. I would go back again if I had too. ...

Best Shoulder Doc...gave me my life back!

I was rear ended in 1998 after which both shoulders and my neck were injured. I went to several orthopedists, physical therapy, cortisone shots, etc with continual pain and suddenly felt old at 35yo and had trouble lifting my child and playing ball with him, holding a coffee mug, holding a blow dryer and had a lot of problems trying to fall asleep. Finally, after being directed to a pain center for which repeat trigger injections did absolutely nothing I was directed to Dr. Bach at Rush. He listened and took some conservative first measures and then after he did one shoulder repair I really noticed the other one became more prominent and a year or two later had the other one done. I am 53yo now and I can't tell you how much I sing this man's praises! I still feel like a 20 something y.o. and have to remind myself to act my age. He is amazingly wonderful and I am a working RN with no affiliation but the greatest appreciation in the world for him! No more aching in my shoulders and the ability to lift again is a gift of life for me. I LOVE HIM!!!

Excellence

I work in the medical field and am very particular about my caretakers. I was not referred to Dr. Bach for my injury; I personally chose him as my physician after extensive research for the best orthopedic surgeon in Chicago. My experience with Dr. Bach has been nothing short of excellent. I was able to schedule my ACL reconstructive surgery within 2 weeks of diagnosis (which surprised me given his credentials), and the surgery went beautifully. Now 2 months postop, I can confidently say that the recovery has been shorter and easier than expected, and my scars are hardly noticeable. My physical therapist mentioned that she works with a number of Dr. Bach's patients recovering from ACL surgery, and his patient always regain mobility/full range of motion faster than any other surgeon's patients. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Bach to my family and friends.
