Hand to Shoulder Clinic

Don't take your hands for granted

Where do you turn for specialized care?

We take our hands for granted. That is until an injury or painful condition develops limiting our ability to work, participate in sports, or perform our normal daily activities.

The Hand to Shoulder Clinic is a subspecialty division within MidAmerica Orthopaedics which is devoted exclusively to treating patients with injuries and conditions of the Hand and Upper Extremity, including:

  • the hand (Carpal Tunnel, Dupuytren’s contracture, Thumb Arthritis, DeQuervain’s)
  • the shoulder (rotator cuff tear, shoulder dislocation, shoulder impingement syndrome)
  • the elbow (elbow tendonitis, dislocated elbow)
  • the wrist (wrist injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome)

Our Fellowship trained physicians are recognized experts throughout the Chicagoland region who use the most current non-operative and operative techniques in the care of their patients.

Our on-site certified hand and physical therapists, who work under the direct supervision of our orthopedic specialists, are an integral part of our team approach to achieving the results you desire and returning you to work, sports, or your daily activities in the timeliest manner possible.

Our hand and shoulder patients come to us from Tinley Park, Orland Park, Homer Glen, New Lenox, Oak Lawn, Worth, Evergreen Park, Burbank, Aslip, Bridgeview and Frankfort.

Aimee Bobko, MD
Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon
Joining MidAmerica August 2022

Dr. Bobko is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specializing in Shoulder & Elbow Surgery. The shoulder and elbow joints offer the largest and most complex range of motion within the human body. If either your shoulder or elbow stop functioning normally, it can prevent you from participating in sports or work. If more severely affected, activities such as combing your hair, getting dressed, cooking, or sleeping can become difficult. Dr. Bobko focuses on restoring mobility with compassionate care and shared decision making with her patients. She pursues medically proven nonoperative treatments and operative options when necessary that include the latest medical technology and techniques to provide the best possible outcome.
