Get to know Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. John J. Bottros, who serves patients in Rockford, Illinois.
Dr. Bottros is an orthopedic surgeon who is currently serving patients at Ortho Illinois in Rockford, Illinois. Since its founding in 1967, Ortho Illinois has grown dynamically to become one of the leading bone and joint providers in Northern Illinois. The team of professionals working there provide exceptional care and expertise from four convenient clinic locations, two in Rockford, one in Elgin, and one in Algonquin, Illinois. The university-quality care delivery is founded on a one-stop, multi-specialty philosophy, meaning patients can expect the convenience of diagnosis, clinical care, diagnostic imaging, and rehabilitation therapy from one location – all under the direction of board-certified physicians who have sub-specialized in specific areas of orthopedic care.
At Ortho Illinois, Dr. Bottros specializes in adult reconstructive surgery of the knee and hip, with a special interest in complex primary total joint replacement, revision total joint replacement, rapid recovery, and perioperative pain management after joint replacement. He is also trained in and has performed a significant number of out-patient total joint procedures that have allowed his patients to have a hip or knee replaced and recover from the convenience of their own home that same day.
In addition to serving patients at Ortho Illinois, he holds hospital privileges at Centegra Hospital – McHenry, Centegra Hospital – Woodstock, Ortho Illinois Surgery Center, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center, Mercy Rockford Hospital, SwedishAmerican Hospital, and Van Matre HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital.
To stay up to date in his field, he is a member of the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons and the American Medical Society, as well as board-certified in orthopedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS). The ABOS is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopedic residents and surgeons, as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopedic surgeons.
A 2005 graduate of the State University of New York Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, Dr. Bottros went on to complete his internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Before establishing his private practice, he elected to pursue a fellowship in adult reconstructive orthopedic surgery at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. “Growing up in a family of physicians has instilled within me that a career in medicine is a way of life, not just a job. The path to a medical career became even more focused through my interest in the biomechanics of the human body and in particular, joint function and movement” stated Dr. Bottros.
He remains actively involved in continuing education and orthopedic research. He has been invited to present to peers at various lectures, as well as has authored numerous publications.
