Chadwick Prodromos MD
Chadwick Prodromos, M.D., is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in shoulder and knee surgery, stem cell and platelet rich plasma treatment of arthritis, and sports injuries and alternatives to knee and shoulder replacement.
Dr. Prodromos graduated with a bachelor’s degree with honors in biology from Princeton University and earned his medical degree from Johns Hopkins Medical School. He completed his surgical internship at the University of Chicago and his orthopedic residency at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center, followed by an orthopedic and sports medicine fellowship at Harvard Medical School/Mass General Hospital.
Although Dr. Prodromos maintains a busy surgical practice with excellent published surgical outcomes and publishes frequently on surgical techniques – some of which he has developed – he believes surgery should only be used as a last resort if non-surgical means have failed. To that end, Dr. Prodromos has extensive successful experience using the patient’s own growth factors and anti-inflammatory cytokines in the form of (laser-activated) PRP and stem cell treatments as successful alternatives to surgical treatment, and especially as an alternative to surgical joint replacement.
