“By using all the tools and most up-to-date technology available, I believe that I can ensure an optimal outcome.”
Dr. Rajeev Garapati, MD, is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in treating broken bones and other traumatic musculoskeletal injuries, including fractures that haven’t healed properly. In addition, he provides care for foot and ankle conditions.
Dr. Garapati offers patients advanced treatment options, including minimally invasive fracture fixation, ankle arthroscopy and the use of biologic and molecular therapies to enhance bone healing.
Dr. Garapati emphasizes involving patients in their care by educating them about their condition and treatment options. His goal is to restore them to the level of function and activity they had before developing their medical problem.
Dr. Garapati comes from a family of physicians, including his father, an anesthesiologist, and aunts and uncles. Seeing the satisfaction they took from working with patients and making them better led Dr. Garapati to follow them into medicine.
He is the orthopaedic trauma director at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville and Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago. Dr. Garapati also is an assistant clinical professor of orthopaedic surgery at the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
He is an avid runner, which gives him an added appreciation of the importance of healthy feet and ankles and helps fuel his determination to improve his patients’ conditions.
Conditions & Procedures
I have found all my interactions with Dr. Garapati over the last 7 months to be poor, consistently characterized by the following: he did not listen to my concerns, he barely ever examined me (he looked at my X-rays), he lacked any empathy, and was disinterested and dismissive of my pain. He never once asked me to describe where I hurt... not once! Dr. Garapati's bedside manner is sub par. He compared me to an 18-year-old boy (he recovered faster) and my recovery to that of a Porsche that had been in an accident ("it still runs, but does not take turns like it used to"). I would never recommend him to anybody! I am a PhD psychologist and he talked to me as if I were a child. I wonder if sexism is at play, but I don't know if he talks this way to his male patients, as well.
this my first appt after surgeryit would have been unfair to expect a miracleso he was truthful and explained my X-rays very well
My concerns were totally put at ease. My first choice to treated for myself or anyone I know. Thank You God Blessed You
We went over the surgery options in detail. This was very good. We are medical professionals so the level of communication was fitting for the situation.
I know the care is the best there is, I am completely satisfied with my care.
