Jack Nickless, MD – Rush University Medical Center

I offer conservative treatment, as opposed
to surgical treatment, for musculoskeletal conditions. So my goal is to hopefully avoid surgery and
help the patient recover from their condition. We have a wide variety of treatment to offer
patients. And there’s some newer braces that are able
to help patients with certain conditions like osteoarthritis. And we also offer injections — from basic
injections like corticosteroids to more advanced injections like PRP — or platelet rich plasma. I like to sit down with the patient and listen
to what they’re telling me and what kind of goals they have — whether it’s getting
back to a certain activity or even just getting back to walking so that they can go grocery
shopping or play with their grandchildren. And we do everything in our power to avoid
surgery but also help the patient meet those goals.
