Dr. Adam F. Meisel, MD, FAAOS

Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Specialist

Dr. Meisel truly enjoys the art and science of Sports Medicine. He strives to help his patients regain and maintain their active lifestyles—from high level competitive athletes, to the recreational weekend warrior—by offering both operative and non-operative approaches to treatment.

He is active in research and has published multiple peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters regarding topics such as meniscal tears, ankle cartilage injuries, and transplants. He continues to be active in research related to hip arthroscopy and rotator cuff repairs.

He feels it is important to stay on the cutting edge of medicine in order to provide the best possible care for his patients.

After residency, Dr. Meisel pursued additional subspecialty training in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy at the Southern California Orthopaedic Institute. While at SCOI he was provided with extensive training in comprehensive care of the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle, as well as treatments involving tendon, ligament, and cartilage repairs. This has allowed him to further develop and refine his skills using the most advanced arthroscopic and minimally invasive techniques to care for his patients.

Dr. Chris Chapman, DO

Pediatric Sports Medicine Specialist

“As a pediatrician and sports medicine specialist, I take care to allow the body to heal itself in the least invasive way. Working with a young mostly healthy patient population, I emphasize healthy alternatives to surgery such as therapy and rehabilitation. I am comfortable working with sports related injuries such as strains, sprains and even simple fractures.”

I am working on my ninth year in non-surgical orthopedics and sports medicine and have lots of experience caring for many of the great families in the surrounding areas.

I have 4 children of my own and pride myself on relating with and understanding a family’s needs when it comes to injuries and prevention. I look forward to start the healing process in hopes of getting our young patients and athletes back to being active and healthy!”

Dr. Chapman is a sports enthusiast and is currently a Co-Director of a soccer club in the city of Chicago with over 30 travel teams. His children all compete in competitive athletics and he understands the desire to achieve excellence in a safe, healthy way.

Dr. Chapman’s friendly, warm demeanor makes it all the more comfortable to have him assist his families return to their healthy active lifestyles.
