Dr. Bartel uses leading-edge surgical and non-invasive techniques to treat everything from arthritic conditions and foot deformities to traumatic musculoskeletal injuries. He has extensive experience in treating:

  • Achilles tendonitis & ruptures
  • Arthritis
  • Arthritis – total joint replacement
  • Bone spurs and bunions
  • Cartilage damage
  • Cartilage restoration
  • Fractures and sprains
  • Hammer toe
  • Nerve-related problems
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Posterior tibial tendon rupture and tears
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome & neuromas
  • Tendon injuries
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Sports injuries of the ankle

It is Dr. Bartel’s primary goal to get patients back quickly to a pain-free, active lifestyle with minimal to no restrictions. Surgery is only an option when necessary, with physical rehabilitation and/or anti-inflammatory therapies (such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), cortisone or viscosupplementation injections) used when possible.

A Fox Valley resident for the last 25 years, Dr. Bartel actively supports the community and participates in various fundraisers and events.
