Treatment Philosophy

“I know what it’s like to be injured and recover. I try to help my patients make the best decision about how to proceed.” Dr. Amy Jo Ptaszek is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon who specializing in treating foot and ankle disorders, particularly in women. She brings to the care of these patients her own experience as a working mother and knowledge of footwear and the role it plays in women’s foot health. Whenever possible, Dr. Ptaszek performs surgery using arthroscopic techniques to minimize incisions and the amount of tissue that must be cut. In providing care, Dr. Ptaszek begins by exploring conservative treatment options before proceeding with surgery if needed. She makes sure to understand each patient’s expectations from treatment and to make sure in turn that each patient understands the condition, recommended treatment, future implications of that treatment on her work and family life, and the rehabilitation process.

Personal Interests

Dr. Ptaszek is a clinical assistant professor of orthopaedics at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine. She collaborated with athletic trainers to design a patented soccer cleat for better fit in order to prevent Achilles tendonopathy. Dr. Ptaszek and her husband built a sports center in Glenview that provides playing fields and community education about athletic training and health.
