Kenneth S. Chakour, MD,FAAOS

About Dr. Chakour

JOINT ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON

Dr. Chakour is a board-certified physician who specializes in orthopedic surgery and outpatient total joint replacement. He specializes in minimally invasive primary joint replacement, anterior hip replacement, complex primary and revision joint replacement, and robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery. He is a leading expert in diagnosing and treating hip and knee injuries, such as osteoarthritis, post traumatic arthritis and hip dysplasia.

Dr. Chakour uses a multidisciplinary, comprehensive approach that includes non-operative management as well as surgical intervention. Activity modification, medication, physical therapy, bracing, injections and pain management are common nonsurgical treatments, with surgery as a last option.

Following surgery, Dr. Chakour works closely with your physical therapist and care team to ensure continuity of care. Your post-operative therapy plan is designed to improve pain, swelling, range of motion, restore strength, and return you to an active lifestyle.

With deep community roots, Dr. Chakour is a St. Charles North High School graduate. He is currently a new dad, and enjoys family life and playing with his German Shepherd, Otto.

About Robotic Surgery

Robotic assisted surgery allows Dr. Chakour to customize each surgery to the patient's specific anatomy with reproducible accuracy and less trauma to the soft tissues. This technology will hopefully allow for a faster recovery, better clinical outcomes, and increase the longevity of the implants.
