He is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon and is fellowship trained in the area of trauma. His post-residency training allows him to treat patients with traumatic injury, particularly those with pelvic injuries, complex fractures, nonunions, and infections. Additionally, Dr. Louis’ practice focuses on hip and knee replacements.

Dr. Louis is one of few surgeons in the Chicago area who performs total hip replacement using the Direct Anterior Approach. Expanding on the pelvic trauma reconstructive work that he does, this procedure has been a natural and comfortable transition.

Experienced knee pain which ended up being a partially torn meniscus. Had surgery which relieved a great deal of pain and am able to move around better due to followup care (rehab appointments). The care I received was and has been great!! Grateful to have found an orthopedic doctor who gave me this great experience. Thank you Dr. Kim!!

Dr. Kim provided outstanding care from start to finish. He provides highly competent and professional clinical care before and after surgery, with great skill. Despite COVID, the clinic operates professionally and efficiently. His PA Daryl is equally professional and competent. Dr. Kim and associates provide an optimum healing environment and experience.
