Profile

Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

“While there are standard treatments to common problems, everyone’s situation differs, and what may be reasonable for one person may not be for another.” Dr. Craig Williams is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with a subspecialty certification in hand surgery. He provides care for traumatic, degenerative, arthritic, and pediatric conditions of the elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand. Dr. Williams also treats compressive neuropathies and performs post-traumatic reconstruction. He provides advanced treatments, including arthroscopy of the wrist, the use of platelet rich plasma to treat tennis elbow and the use of the medication Xiaflex as a non-surgical alternative for treatment of Dupuytren’s disease. His practice philosophy is to evaluate each patient individually, and to understand their unique needs and concerns. He believes that it is essential for him to educate his patients regarding their disease process, as well as the rationale behind available treatment options.

Personal Interests

Dr. Williams is an instructor of clinical surgery at the University of Chicago Pritzker School. He is a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and the New Millennieum Hand Study Group. He is a cyclist and plays hockey weekly.
