Hip Preservation

Dr. Chukwunenye Osuji first came to Midwest Orthopaedic Center in 2011. Its reputation for delivering excellence in orthopaedic care is what inspired him to make this practice his professional home. In the time since, he’s worked closely with his colleagues to bring first-rate bone, muscle and joint treatment to patients in Central Illinois and the surrounding region.

Specializing in the treatment and prevention of traumatic injuries and chronic conditions, Dr. Osuji operates on complex fractures and performs hip and knee joint reconstruction. For the latter, he offers robotic-assisted procedures and also champions the anterior approach to hip replacements –– which can help minimize pain and maximize mobility following surgery.

To Dr. Osuji, empathy is the driving force behind his approach to orthopaedics. He aims to understand the underlying cause of your injury before developing a relevant treatment plan for you. He’s also fully aware that training doesn’t stop in med school. Dr. Osuji’s always learning new methods to bring to the table, and he applies whichever techniques may be most applicable and appropriate to your situation.

Meet Our Patients

From Dr. Osuji to his staff, they're so caring. I've never had quite that kind of treatment with an operation. I would recommend everyone to go there if they have the kind of problems that I had.

Marty Midwest Orthopaedic Patient
I'm a referring physician and a patient. Throughout my career, I worked with several different orthopaedic groups and Midwest Orthopaedic Center was the absolute best.

I wish I had my surgery years ago. I've been so surprised and so elated that I have gotten that full motion back. Within six months, I was walking all around Arches National Park.
