Dr. Greg Brebach is a Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, fellowship-trained in spinal surgery. Originally from the Barrington area, he graduated from Barrington High School. He joined Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute in 2003 after finishing first in his class at Rush Medical College and completing his Spine Fellowship at William Beaumont Hospital near Detroit, Michigan. Dr. Brebach adds his expertise to Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute’s spinal surgery capabilities.
Dr. Brebach’s practice is limited to disorders of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. Dr. Brebach stresses a conservative approach to spinal care, stating, “The great majority of the patients I see are not surgical candidates. Most people respond to a designed regimen of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, exercise, oral steroid medications, and occasionally epidural steroid injections.” When surgery is necessary, Dr. Brebach employs the latest techniques in spinal surgery to limit recovery times and optimize long-term results. His goal is “to get you where you want to be.”
Since 2007, Dr. Brebach has been on the Board of Directors of Wellness Place, a cancer recovery and education center. He lives in the Barrington area with his wife Elissa and their children, Nina and Henry.
