James Bresch, MD has more than 25 years experience as an orthopedic surgical specialist. A highly respected surgeon in the field of orthopedics, Dr. Bresch brings a diverse portfolio of know-how and experience to his patients. Dr. Bresch specializes in Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, Shoulder, and Knee Reconstruction.

Dr. Bresch had an early interest in medicine. While attending high school in Maryland, Jim won a science award, which entitled him to work while still in high school at the prestigious Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR). Dr. Bresch then went on to pursue a career in medicine, earning his medical degree at Loyola University of Chicago and completed his orthopedic residency at Northwestern University in Chicago. Committed to orthopedics because of his proclivity to "fix things", Dr. Bresch performed his fellowship at the world renowned Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic in Los Angeles. While at Kerlan-Jobe, Dr. Bresch was a member of a team that serviced the Los Angeles Rams, Los Angeles Lakers, California Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Kings, and the Anaheim Ducks.

Dr. Bresch currently practices in Chicago as part of a large private group limited to orthopedic care. He is proud of the Illinois Sports Medicine and Orthopedic Surgery Center, which he co-founded and developed for the care of advanced orthopedic surgery needs. His clinical practice is limited and focused to the care and treatment of shoulder and knee conditions. Jim is a design surgeon for high performance arthroplasty knee replacement systems and an innovator in advanced arthroscopic surgical techniques and instruction.

During his leisure hours, Dr. Bresch can often be found at an ice rink trying to keep up with his children’s skating and shooting skills, or at home with his wife tending to organic gardens, managing chickens, and harvesting the hard work of their many bee colonies.
