“When coming to my office, parents and kids can be sure that not only will they receive the most up-to-date innovation and surgical techniques, but also the most extraordinary care and compassion.”
Dr. Andrea Kramer is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in pediatric orthopaedics. She provides treatments for all the major congenital disorders, including hip dysplasia, club feet, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and down syndrome. She also provides care for scoliosis and traumatic injuries. She offers the most up to date surgical and clinical techniques, including the latest in fracture fixation and bracing.
Dr. Kramer believes that her position as a Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon gives her special responsibilities to the children that she treats. Not only does she make certain that parents understand the treatment options presented, but she also ensures that each of her patients gets the personal attention they need so that they are comfortable and fully understand.
Dr. Kramer is the Director of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Center of Excellence at Advocate Children’s Hospital in Park Ridge, IL and she frequently lectures for courses presented by the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America. Currently, Dr. Kramer is conducting research in the use of a brace instead of a cast when treating femur (thigh bone) fractures in newborn to five year-old children, a technique that spares the patient from needing surgery.
As a dedicated athlete, her appreciation of physical fitness and well being help fuel her commitment to improve her patients’ conditions. The mother of two boys, Dr. Kramer helps parents make treatment decisions for their children as if she were making them for her own.
