Dr. Surbhi Panchal brings her education and expertise in hand and upper extremity surgery to Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute in 2013. She completed the prestigious Cleveland Combined Hand Fellowship at the renowned Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth Medical Center, the only adult Level I trauma center in Cleveland.
Dr. Panchal is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, the Ruth Jackson Orthopedic Society and the American Association for Hand Surgery. She has conducted research on surgical outcomes of upper extremity patients, has published in orthopedic peer-reviewed journals, and authored several chapters in medical texts on elbow and hand surgery. During her residency, Dr. Panchal participated in a mission to the Dominican Republic to provide free surgical care to local communities lacking access to general orthopedics and specialized upper extremity care.
Dr. Panchal specializes in disorders and treatment of the hand, wrist, elbow and arm. Any injury to the upper extremity can affect not only the function of the patient but the quality of a patient’s life, Dr. Panchal supports a balance of conservative and surgical measures to achieve optimal results for each patient. Achieving this balance means a unique discussion and treatment plan for each patient so that they achieve the best outcome possible.
Dr. Panchal grew up in Woodridge in Dupage County and remained in the Midwest to complete her undergraduate degree in Cleveland, Ohio. She received her medical degree in Baltimore and remained there to complete her residency. After a one year stopover in Cleveland to complete her fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Panchal has returned to her home state of Illinois. She is moving to the Barrington area with her husband Shaun to join Lake Cook Orthopedics, a Division of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute and looks forward to practicing in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.
