Welcome to OrthoIllinois!

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from Rockford, Illinois and I earned my B.S. degree in bioengineering with a chemistry minor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1998. I continued my studies at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford, graduating with honors in 2002.

Following my graduation, I completed an internship and pursued advanced orthopedic training as part of my surgical residency at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, N.C.. In addition, I completed another year at a subspecialty training program, or fellowship, in pediatric orthopedic surgery at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago.

My practice is focused on providing specialized health care to children and teens who have orthopedic conditions resulting from traumatic injuries, congenital deformities, and neuromuscular conditions, as well as general orthopedic care for adults. I have a special interest in sports injuries, pediatric fracture care, congenital deformities, clubfeet, pediatric hip and foot conditions.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at OrthoIllinois. My goal is to provide you the best medical care available in a comfortable, nurturing environment.

I am looking forward to meeting you.

Here's what my patients are saying:

Most amazing staff and doctor ever. If you want a good diagnosis and treatment, this is the doctor to see. He treated myself and son with the best care, and his staff was also outstanding!

Can't say enough about the professionalism, patience, kindness, concern and care my son (and I) received today from Dr. Ferry and his staff today. Everyone was absolutely wonderful.

"I saw Dr. Ferry in 2014 for a torn ACL and meniscus damage.  Dr. Ferry was great at explaining every option and informing me of the steps along the way, as well as recovery times and expected outcomes.  Can't recommend Dr. Ferry and his team enough."  Matt, review

"Dr. Ferry is the best, my family has been going to him for years for sports injuries and life injuries.  I would recommend him to anyone and everyone."  Ben M. - Facebook post
