Victor M. Romano MD
Founder, Romano Orthopaedic Center
As a life-long resident of Oak Park and River Forest, Illinois Dr. Victor Romano is honored to be practicing orthopaedics in his hometown for over 25 years. He does his best to serve this outstanding community, pledging to give you compassionate and quality orthopaedic care in a timely manner.
Specializing in Sports Medicine on athletes of all ages, he takes care of injuries of your shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankles. Although skilled in arthroscopic procedures of the shoulder and knee, he prefers conservative care as much as possible, including platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections. He will work with you, your physical therapist and athletic trainers in your rehabilitation while focusing on preventing further injuries. If surgery is necessary, he provides state of the art arthroscopic surgery and directs you through an aggressive physical therapy program to ensure a rapid and safe return to sports.
Dr. Romano is skilled in surgical and conservative treatment of trauma and fractures of the upper and lower extremities in children and adults. To prevent return customers, he founded a bone health clinic where his team assesses your risk of future fractures, educates you in proper nutrition for bone health and, when necessary, starts you on medication to increase your bone density, thereby preventing secondary fractures
