Joshua M. Alpert, MD,FAAOS

About Dr. Alpert

Dr. Alpert is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon who completed his sports medicine fellowship at Harvard/Massachusetts General Hospital. He currently cares for student-athletes at Judson University, Larkin, Elgin, and Dundee Crown High Schools, as well as the Chicago Inferno Soccer team. In 2018, he was named to Chicago Magazine’s prestigious list of Top Orthopedic Doctors.

Dr. Alpert’s primary focus is on getting his patients back to their activities quickly, whether using non-invasive treatments such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapies or minimally invasive surgical techniques. When conservative care has been unsuccessful, Dr. Alpert performs knee arthroscopy (in the case of meniscus or ACL tears) and shoulder arthroscopy (for rotator cuff or labral tears), as well as shoulder replacements for arthritis.

In addition to treating sports injuries, Dr. Alpert commonly sees patients with work-related injuries and performs independent medical examinations and impairment ratings.

A lifelong athlete, he understands his patients’ desire to return to work, school, life, and sports not only healed but better than before their injury.
