Dr. Wayne M. GoldsteinDr. Goldstein is a specialist in hip and knee reconstruction and revision surgery in the suburban Chicago area. He has been in practice since 1983 and is also the President and Founder of the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute, Ltd in 1991. In the office setting, he sees 5,000 patients per year at two sites; Des Plaines and Morton Grove. He has performed research since 1973 and has numerous publications. His research and experience have led him to independently and collaboratively design hip and knee replacement implants which have proven success.

Among his other accomplishments, Dr. Goldstein was an innovator in minimum incision total hip MITH® surgical procedures. The incision during his procedures is usually a minimum of four inches long as compared to the standard 12-16 inch incision. This technique has become his main method of hip replacement surgery unless the patient has a large amount of body mass. Even when the patient has a large body size, they can expect a smaller incision than has been used in the past. He has presented this technique in a Scientific Exhibit at the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeon’s annual meeting in New Orleans, 2003. This technique was also published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery in 2003. Dr. Goldstein has designed instruments which are commercially available in the US, Canada and Europe to perform this procedure. He has been educating physicians regarding this technique at various sites including the Orthopedic Learning Center in Rosemont Illinois and the MERRI in Memphis Tennessee. Dr. Goldstein has found this smaller incision to provide the patient with the same results as the longer incision, but finds that MITH® patients are pleased with the smaller scar.

As a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, he has presented many papers, posters and scientific exhibits annually since 1984. Currently he is Clinical Professor of Orthopaedics at the University of Illinois at Chicago and past President of the Illinois Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He is active in professional issues and his interests include:

  • prevention of postoperative complications
  • pain control
  • cost-control
  • reimbursement
  • compassionate patient care.

Dr. Goldstein is married, and has three children.

Research, Publications & Exhibits

Dr. Goldstein has put his research into practice in several areas:

Dr. Goldstein with a patient

Rotating Platform Revision Total Knee Arthroplasty - published in The Journal of Knee Surgery in 2012

The authors report on the clinical results of 44 Mobile-Bearing revision total knee arthroplasty procedures using the Rotating Platform construct at 2 years after surgery. Both laboratory and clinical study were performed to assess the in vitro and in vivo performance of the Mobile Bearing Tibial revision tray design. Clinical results were put into context through wear testing which demonstrated improved wear performance compared with fixed bearing revision knees.

Mid-term Survivorship Results For A Rotating-platform Knee Prosthesis - published in Orthopedics in January 2011.

We studied results at two to five years with a Mobile-Bearing system that includes a cobalt-chrome tibial tray and femoral component with a polyethylene cruciate-retaining tibial component insert that allows rotation around a central axis. In comparison with the Fixed-Bearing  knee equivalent, this Mobile-Bearing knee has demonstrated at least equivalent results in terms of survivorship, function and patient satisfaction in the short and mid-term. 

Unilateral vs Bilateral Total Knee Arthroplasty Risk Factors Increasing Morbidity - published in Journal of Arthroplasty August 2011.

We performed a retrospective cohort analysis of 150 patients with unilateral TKA vs 150 patients with simultaneous bilateral TKA. Our study demonstrated that age, body mass index, and a preexisting pulmonary disorder resulted in increased complications.

Acetabular Cup Revision with the Use of the Medial Protrusio Technique at an Average Follow-up of 6.6 years - published in Journal of Arthroplasty February 2010.

We studied the medial protrusio technique for acetabular fixation in revision total hip arthroplasty and found this technique can be a valuable option in addressing acetabular cup failure. 

Comparison of Patient Satisfaction with Incision Cosmesis After Standard and Minimally Invasive Total Hip Arthroplasty - published in Orthopedics in April 2008.

We compared the Minimal Incision Total Hip (MITH) technique to a standard incision technique and assessed patients regarding satisfaction and cosmesis. The smaller incision group had a significantly higher incidence of scar edges sinking or curling into the scar and more patients with the longer standard incision had optimal cosmesis scores than those with the smaller incisions.
