David R. Morawski, MD,FAAOS

About Dr. Morawski

Joint Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Morawski is a board-certified physician who specializes in orthopedic surgery and total joint replacement. He has been performing knee and hip replacements for over 25 years, and is the leading expert in anterior hip replacement, minimally invasive muscle sparing same day total knee replacement, and joint revision surgery in the Northwest suburbs.

Patient-oriented, comprehensive care is at the forefront of Dr. Morawski’s treatment plan. He uses a variety of nonsurgical treatment methods including activity modification, medication, physical therapy, bracing, injections and pain management. Biologics for treatment of arthritis including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell treatments are also used.

When surgery is necessary, patients can feel confident in a treatment and recovery plan that fits their individual needs. A pre-operative total joint replacement educational video is available to all patients, and it takes patients step-by-step through the surgical and recovery process.

For patients having hip surgery, Dr. Morawski uses a minimally invasive or muscle sparing hip arthroplasty technique where he is able to reduce damage to surrounding muscles and tendons. This technique often leads to faster recovery.

For patients having knee surgery, Dr. Morawski uses minimally invasive quadriceps sparing arthroplasty to allow patient to return home just hours after surgery. For patients having shoulder surgery, he performs both standard and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty if rotator cuff is incompetent.

Common reasons for joint replacement, include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fracture
  • Infection/osteomyelitis
  • Tumor
  • Loss of blood supply or avascular necrosis
  • Abnormal growth or dysplasia

Dr. Morawski is committed to same day total joint replacement surgery in Fox Valley Orthopedic’s Ambulatory Surgery Center … patients can recover in the comfort of their own home hours after surgery.

An active member of the community, Dr. Morawski enjoys traveling with his wife throughout the United States and Europe, golfing, and spending time with family.
