  • I would definitely recommend Dr. Chiu for your orthopedic needs. I had a shoulder injury this year , 2021. Dr. Chiu assessed my shoulder and ordered the appropriate imaging. After reviewing the results it was determined that I needed surgery . Surgery went as planned and so is recovery. He answered all my questions that I had prior to surgery and after surgery. Do not hesitate to have Dr Chiu take care of you. Nick S

  • Dr. Chiu performed a posterior root repair of my meniscus. My surgical outcome was stellar! He is truly an outstanding surgeon and I couldn’t be happier. My profession is working in the OR and I assist many orthopedic surgeons. I knew, without a doubt that I would choose Dr. Chiu to perform my surgery. I have no regrets, as I am able to return to my crazy Crossfit life at the age of 57. Thanks Dr. Chiu!!

  • Dr. Chiu was my definitive choice to perform my complex ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair. I am a PT that has been practicing in orthopedics for the past 23 years in the area. His communication, skill and caring were all factors and exceeded my expectations. The rehab is now in my hands and I look forward to returning to functional activities and sport in large part to Dr. Chiu.

  • Dr. Chiu repaired my torn pectoral muscle 8 months after it occurred. Another doctor I went to before him told me surgery was not an option but Dr. Chiu assured me it could be done. It's been 3 months after surgery and I already have my full range of motion back and the muscle is healing great. I would recommend this doctor to anybody.

  • February 22, 2021: I tend to be wordy in my testimonials so am trying to make this short and sweet. Basically, during my last visit, today, with Dr. Chiu, who performed emergency surgery on my left wrist (a compound fracture) on November 29, 2020, I shook his hand and let him know I thank God for him as the surgeon who performed my emergency surgery at Northwest Community Hospital on a Sunday afternoon in Arlington Heights, Illinois. I didn't know it at the time I went into surgery, but he was not sure if i would even have the use of some of my fingers again! Even within days after my surgery, i could type again. The surgery he performed on my wrist in combination with the physical therapist at IBJR in Arlington Heights has given me great hope to be able to ride my bike again in the Chicago Tri, this year, and I can already pick up my grandchildren again! I'm confident within the next few months, I'll be able to go back to some more complicated floor exercises I used to do! Thank you Dr. Chiu for your excellent surgery and the hope it has given me to have the joy-filled retirement - serving my family, my friends and my church, I am hoping to have in the near future! Sincerely, Mindy Owens

  • Dr Chiu reconstructed my ACL torn in a ski accident. I am a person in my 50's and he presented me with all my options. He is very knowledgeable in this area and has lots of informational videos on what is involved in such a surgery. He answered all my questions about activities post Op and time frame for recovery. He is very honest in his assessment regarding the work required on my part before returning to activities which I appreciated. I trust him with my joints.

  • I wanted to thank Dr. Chiu for the great job that he did in repairing my torn meniscus. I was able to see him a day after tearing my meniscus and after an MRI confirmed his initial assumption, I was able to have surgery before 2 weeks had elapsed. It has now been a little more than a month since surgery, and I am doing very well. I would recommend Dr. Chiu to anyone that is looking for a great orthopedic surgeon.

  • I am extremely satisfied with the care I have received from Dr. Chiu! He successfully performed surgery after I suffered a nasty compound fracture of my ankle. A second surgery was needed to remove some of the pins after they were in place for 3 months. I appreciate that Dr. Chiu is always on time for his appointments. He also saw me on very short notice when there was a concern regarding my healing. I appreciate the fact that he is clear in his explanations!

  • I'm a young athlete who had a torn labrum on my right shoulder and was in tremendous pain during competitive swimming, Dr Chiu understood my passion to get back into swimming. He performed surgery, provided a great physical therapy regimen and had me back in the water in 8 months. He showed compassion and confidence in his ability that he would get me back to the sport I love so much!

  • I fell on my knee and was in a tremendous amount of pain. Having a great previous experience with IBJI I immediately called to see when I would be able to get an appointment. They were able to see me the same day and got me right in. The office is beautiful, the staff was incredibly nice and Dr. Chiu was excellent. He was very nice, prompt, very helpful, answered all of my questions and gave me spot on advice. I listened to his recommendations and was feeling better very quickly. I absolutley attribute my speedy recovery to Dr. Chiu. With his guidance I will be back to my routine soon. Another great experience with IBJI!! I would absolutely recommend Dr. Chiu and will use him for any future needs!!

  • Dr. Chiu is a most efficient surgeon who repaired a torn meniscus in my right knee. Both pre-op and post-op meetings were brief and on-point with Dr. Chiu explaining his procedures and answering questions. He is a personable man - friendly, approachable - and clearly very good at what he does: my walking without a limp is a testament to his skill as an orthopedic surgeon.

  • I had torn my PCL, MCL, my meniscus, and shattered my tibia plateau. He fixed it and when I came out of surgery I gotta say I was in a lot less pain that I thought I would be in. Physical therapy was an extreme challenge, but that was expected because my injury was on the extreme side as well. This guy is the man, and does not sugar coat anything.

  • Dr. Chiu has been terrific with his evaluations and diagnosis relative to my recent shoulder issues. Though surgical intervention had been discussed, none has been pursued, as vigorous physical therapy has proven to be very effective. His demeanor is casual, comforting and caring with his medical skills and insights being superb. Dr. Chiu has the expertise to engage in very thoughtful orthopedic medical encounters with patients seeking straight forward answers to their individual maladies. Do not hesitate to contact Dr. Chiu when the need arises.

  • Dr. Chiu took care of my daughter this year. She was in her senior year of volleyball season when she injured her hip. She was insistent on finishing out the season and he was able make that happen for her. They worked as a team to get her through to her goal of finishing out senior year without surgery! About a week after the season ended she had her hip arthroscopy done successfully. Not only is his bedside manner amazing, his patience with her was even better. She lives with a significant amount of anxiety and he was able to calm that down. Not only did I have a lot of trust in him, so did she! She is now 4 months post op and doing incredible. Working out, running, and not having any pain! It is one thing to have surgery yourself, but entrusting your child to someone is a big deal for me! I would not have chosen anyone else!
  • My profession is in the medical device field which requires me to be in the operating room so I'm fortunate to have access to multiple orthopaedic surgeons in the area. When I suffered a broken ankle that I knew had to be surgically repaired I went to Dr. Chiu. Dr. Chiu took the time to make sure I understood every step of the process in order to return to my active lifestyle. Before surgery Dr. Chiu had me get a CT Scan done which uncovered the complexity of one of my fractures which most surgeons would not have done. I was also very grateful for the time spent during my office visits to make sure I understood everything and had all of my questions answered. Thank you Dr. Chiu!!!!!

  • I had an orthopedic accident and broke my right wrist and my left shoulder. I was transferred to the emergency room at Northwest Community. Dr. Chiu was the attending orthopedic.

I am so thankful to have met him. He is an amazing doctor. He is genuinely concerned for his patients and their care. I was able to recover under his care. Great doc.
  • Illinois Bone and Joint Institute was recommended to me by my long time orthopedic surgeon who was retiring. I was introduced to Dr. Chui for a very badly torn shoulder muscle.

  • Dr. Michael Chiu takes his time to listen to your concerns than patiently explains everything that needs to be done. His bedside manner is excellent and his staff is very friendly. My wife had an issue with her knee. We were referred to Dr. Chiu by a friend who had visited him 3 months ago with a knee injury, had surgery, and his care was exceptional. For my wife he provided a cortisone shot and her improvement was 100%. We would referrer Dr. Michael Chiu to any of our family and friends.
  • I saw Dr. Chiu for a left hip labral repair scope. If you are looking for a kind, patient doctor with knowledge and expertise he is your guy! Every visit I was able to express my concerns and know he was listening. I never felt rushed and always had my questions answered. His bedside manner is one of the best I have come across (I am a nurse so I have seen a lot). After the first appointment I knew he was the right doctor for me and I could trust him for my surgery!
