Don't be sidelined by injury

Young athletes like Blair, Kelvin and Dillion didn’t expect to be sidelined by injuries that kept them from playing the sports they loved. But when it happened, all of them were grateful to have Dr. Painter from the Orthopedic Center of Illinois and the orthopedic experts at HSHS St. Francis Hospital close to home to help them get back in the game.

Quality you can trust

When Dillion injured his knee playing baseball, he knew it was time to have surgery so that he could be ready in time for the next sports season. He trusted St. Francis Hospital to provide him the care he needed close to home. After his surgery, Dillion appreciated how St. Francis’ therapists inspired him to give all he could – “They helped me push myself and got me to another level.”

Get back to what you love doing

When a knee injury sidelined Kelvin, he knew he needed surgery to be able to return to playing the sports he loved but was hesitant. The care and compassion he received from Dr. Painter and the staff at HSHS St. Francis gave him the reassurance he needed – “They told me I would be OK and they would get me back to 100% strength and they did. I still think about that to this day.”
