At Midwest Orthopaedic Consultants, Experience Matters Most

A new Midwest Orthopaedic Consultants commercial began airing this summer on all major TV stations, and we hope you’ve gotten a chance to see it.

The ad has given us a chance to highlight our experienced team and comprehensive orthopedic services, as well as share our message of well-being with TV audiences.

If you haven’t seen the commercial yet, you can view it below, along with a summary.

Experience Matters

We know that when patients are suffering from physical pain, nothing else matters: Your focus is on finding relief – now – and not on checking the credentials and experience of the medical professionals who are equipped to help you.

But for the eight orthopedic surgeons and specialists at Midwest Orthopaedic Consultants, experience has never mattered more. We have more than 25 years of experience serving the Southland community and more than 90 years of combined orthopedic experience.

MOC was founded by five orthopedic surgery specialists in the Oak Lawn area in 1995, and since then, we’ve opened a second location and expanded our first. Three of the original founding members have retired, and our new surgeons have continued the legacy of improved patient care, streamlined delivery of care and maximized outcomes for our patients.
