Do you need a referral to see an orthopedic surgeon?

Probably not, but it does depend on the type of insurance you have. 

For Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Medicare, you have the flexibility to visit any doctor you want within the network without a referral. This will save you time and money, possibly avoiding additional co-pays and deductibles. 

If you don’t have a PPO, you may have a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO). HMOs typically require a referral to see an orthopedic surgeon from their Primary Care Physician. 

Check with your insurance if you need to visit your primary care physician before scheduling an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon.

Where do you perform your surgeries?

We perform surgeries at four different facilities: Alexian Brothers Medical Center (Elk Grove Village, IL), St. Alexius Medical Center (Hoffman Estates, IL), Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital (Barrington, IL), and Geneva Surgical Suites (Genoa City, WI).

Any other treatment is conducted at any of our CORE offices. For more information, please read our patient checklist.

What other treatments do you perform at CORE?

At CORE Orthopedics, we do more than surgery. We offer physical therapy, MRIs, stem cell therapy, and treatment for almost any issue under the sun.

We treat hand, elbow, shoulder, spine, hip, and knee problems.

Will CORE accept my insurance plan?

We accept 30 different insurance plans. If we don’t cover yours, we’re here to discuss any arrangements you may need.
