Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

“I respect my patients’ concerns, time, and decisions. They have my complete attention so I can determine the best treatment options and help them make an informed decision about their health.” Dr. Michael Kornblatt is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in treating disorders of the spine, including herniated disks and spinal stenosis. Dr. Kornblatt has extensive experience in microscopic surgery, a form of minimally invasive surgery that uses advanced microscopes to view the surgical area. This technique allows him to perform delicate spine surgery using small incisions, decreasing pain and speeding recovery times. Dr. Kornblatt also is experienced in providing injection therapy to treat degenerative disorders of the spine.

Personal Interests

Like his brother Ira, also an IBJI physician, Dr. Kornblatt was inspired to enter the medical profession by his late uncle, an orthopaedic surgeon. Dr. Kornblatt emphasizes a positive attitude in his treatment and encourages the same attitude in patients, recognizing that it can make a significant difference in patients’ outcomes. He realizes that patients typically are apprehensive about undergoing surgery and makes certain that they are thoroughly informed about their medical options and given the final decision about treatment. Working with his brother, Dr. Kornblatt was a spine consultant to the Chicago Wolves and the Chicago Bulls for ten years, including the last three Bulls championship seasons.
