Treatment Philosophy

Dr. Alexander C. Gordon, is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in treating hip and knee conditions in adults. He is an expert in anterior approach hip replacement, which decreases post-operative pain and speeds recovery. Dr. Gordon also uses sensor-assisted techniques to perform knee replacement surgery that is fine-tuned for the specific patient. In providing care, Dr. Gordon’s philosophy is to listen to his patients to ensure he fully understands the patient’s individual concerns and goals in seeking care. He stresses effective communication, joint decision-making and mutual trust. When surgical care is the chosen treatment method, his goal is to apply the highest quality technical skill and knowledge base to his work, leading to pain relief and rapid restoration of function for his patients.

Personal Interests

His interest in science and helping people led Dr. Gordon to become a physician. He chose to specialize in orthopaedics because it offers very tangible methods to help people relieve pain and to restore active lifestyles. Dr. Gordon is currently helping develop a new form of sensor-guided knee replacement technology and is conducting a research collaboration with other surgeons to determine algorithms to optimize surgery using this device. He helps train residents as a clinical assistant professor of orthopaedics at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago.
