- Repaired slap tear in right bicep, removed bone spurs and fixed bursa sack.
Had shoulder surgery 30 years ago on left shoulder and was dreading getting the right shoulder done. Initial MRI showed partial tear in rotator, but Dr. Joy, once he got in there saw nothing wrong with it and fixed the torn bicep, removed bone spurs and tightened up the bursa. Recovery time was much faster and Dr. Joy did an awesome job with pain management treatment. I really never felt any pain post surgery and very little during recovery. Did what he asked me to do and everything he said would happen during recovery happened. I am 4 months out of surgery and feel like I am 95% there! 5% balance is on me to get it strengthened and then it will be better than it has been in many years. Dr Joy did a great job in answering questions, giving guidance and fixing a painful shoulder back to recovery better than it was before! FYI - when I asked two other Dr's I routinely see and asked who would they recommend - both said Dr Joy without hesitation. Best advice I have received!!!
- Anterior Hip Replacement
Absolutely the BEST! I recently had anterior hip replacement of my right hip. I had been experiencing pain for about a year and decided to set up a few appointments with a couple of orthopedic specialists to get their opinion of what would be best for me to improve my quality of life. After meeting with both specialists, I decided to have a full hip replacement and chose Dr. Weber to perform the surgery. From the original first consultation, all the way to my last visit, I could not be happier with Integrity Orthopedics, Dr. Weber, and his entire staff. Everyone in the office is extremely professional, courteous, and caring. Dr. Weber took the time and effort to explain the various options available, as well as the complete procedure for surgery and post surgery expectations. I am so happy I chose to have the surgery done and HIGHLY recommend Dr. Weber if you need hip replacement. Thank you so much!
- Shoulder replacement surgery
I retired from construction, I have had a bad shoulder for the last 10 years up to retirement, worked through the pain, as soon as I retired, I went immediately to a shoulder physician, he gave me as many cortisone shots as a Dr. is allowed. Then telling me surgery was inevitable, considering how bad of shape the shoulder was in, and the amount of arthritis I had in this joint. So he gave me the names of a couple of shoulder surgeons, in which one of them was Dr. Joy. He does not sell surgery, in fact he gave me a couple of options to try and told me I would know when I was ready for surgery, because the pain would be interfering in my life! He was spot on, after a year or so of treatments, I came and told him it was time. We set the surgery up a few weeks later. My first surgery in life at 59 years old, he told me at least 6 month recovery. Have to admit, I was kind of nervous. Not only was the surgery a success, but after 6 months of therapy with Dr. Joys therapy guy, Dan, who is really good also! I am pain free, I do more things now than I did before surgery, can’t say enough about Dr Joy and his staff, from the assistant who gave me my X-rays to Alex his assistant who helped me with my home excersises. They have a really good clinic going, and if you follow their instructions during recovery with a good attitude and drive, I believe Dr. Joy and his awesome staff will get you back to the way you remember you were!
- Double Hip Replacement
I had severe pain for two years going to a pain specialist, chiropractor, therapy and massage therapists. Everyone had a different theory of what was causing the pain none of them thought it was hip issues. I could hardly walk (even with a walker) by the time I went to Dr. Weber, bone on bone on both hips. He did the first surgery and I was amazed at the recovery time, the small incision and no pain on that hip side. I had to wait a few months for the second hip but had the same amazing results. He is amazing! Now I am pain free and I am mobile without any support of any kind and have a life again. My only regret is that I suffered for two years of my life going to the alternatives when I just should have gone to him in the first place. Anyone that asks me now, I just suggest they be like Nike says and "just do it"!
- Rotator cuff, bicep and bone spur surgery
Dr. Joy perform three surgeries on me at one time. My surgery went very well. I was so pleased with my outcome . Dr. Joy has the best bedside manners that I have experienced. Dr. Joy explained everything that he would do during my surgery. He also showed me and explained pictures taken during my surgery. Follow up with Dr. Joy was a joy. I told Dr. Joy about the pain I was encountering after a couple of visits at my physical therapy office. He asked me to show him the exercises I was doing and immediately knew that I was not ready to do the exercises my therapist had me doing. Dr. Joy immediately called my therapist office to inform them of the problems I was having with the pain level I was experiencing and why I was having the pain. After his call to my therapist I had no more problems. He showed genuine concern regarding my level of pain and wasted no time in calling my therapist. Every office visit was pleasant. The office staff was always pleasant. Making follow up appointments was never a problem. My wait time for my appointments were never long. I am so satisfied with Dr. Joy and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Joy and it was a pleasure being taken care of by him.
- Total left hip replacement
Dr. Weber is the best there is he took his time and went over what he was going to do to replace my hip and showed my wife and myself what was left. He stressed that I was to be very careful not to fall. His staff is top-notch, George was always ready to answer questions and Cindy was just super getting everything set up for me. I tell you you can not get better. Plain and simple all care and Dr. Weber is the best surgeon going. Thank you, Dr. Weber and staff.

- physical therapy on shoulder
This was the first time I ever needed physical therapy and it was a bit scary. The very first time I arrived at Integrity, I was greeted by Jessica and Dan. They were amazing! Not only is my shoulder 100% better, but my experience there was excellent. I consider them my friends and would recommend Integrity to everyone. Thank you Jess and Dan for making my therapy awesome. Miss you both.

I never thought my husband would move his arm again. Dr. Joy did surgery on my husband Ed Mucha. He did an incredible job. He did a fantastic job and his bedside manner is fantastic. I would recommend him to anyone who may need surgery. Words can't explain how happy we are with his services.

- Knee Replacement
I had my left knee replaced on March 21st by Dr. Weber. He also did my right knee in 1999. His entire staff, starting with Dr. Weber of course, is great. From the ladies who greet the patients at the reception desk to people like Cody and George. I know dealing with people who are in pain, old, confused or otherwise just cranky because of being ill or injured is not easy. His staff does it without losing their smile or caring. I could have gone anywhere for this procedure. I am a Vietnam Vet and a senior citizen and I live in Harvard, Illinois (approx. 100 miles from Dr. Weber's office). All of the appointments and driving were well worth it.
- Right Total Hip Replacement
My name is John Warren. I am a 49 year old healthy airline pilot. For the last year, I limped when walking with chronic hip pain. Unable to exercise, I gained weight and found myself in a sour mood. I consulted my neighbor who is a surgeon. He recommended I schedule an appointment to see Dr. Daniel Weber. They had been classmates at Northwestern Medical School. He said, "Dr. Weber always had the best test scores and is an excellent surgeon." My entire experience with Integrity Orthopedics was seamless. Dr. Weber has surrounded himself with a great staff. They are all very professional, helpful, friendly, and are working towards a common goal of getting their patients healthy. Dr. Weber's bedside manner is confident, upbeat, and caring. Most importantly, he gave me an accurate diagnosis with excellent treatment. My surgery was performed at Palos Community Hospital. In pre-operation Dr. Weber came to say good morning. He looked fresh and ready for business. My operation was a complete success. When I woke up, a dark cloud over my head had been lifted. I had a private room that had recently been renovated. The nursing staff was attentive to all of my needs. I never felt any pain throughout the entire procedure and post recovery. Two months after the surgery, I am enjoying walking several miles per day with no limp or pain. Biking and golfing are two sports that I have returned to play. All of my excess weight has been lost. I truly feel this was a turning point in my life. I have great pride in my health again and a zest for life. Thank you Dr. Weber and staff for making this possible.

- Ankle Fracture
I can't begin to say how lucky and blessed I am to have had Dr. Joy as my orthopedic surgeon. He was absolutely wonderful and I wouldn't be doing as well as I am if it weren't for him. I would highly recommend Dr. Joy to my family and friends. I had an awesome experience and am very grateful to him.
- Knee Replacement/Rotator Cuff Repair
At one time in my life, doing anything physical was difficult and painful. After discussing my goals and options, Dr. Daniel Weber did my first complete knee replacement in March of 2014. My second knee was done in February of 2015. My last issue was a torn rotator cuff. Dr. Edward Joy explained everything and did the repair in October of 2015. With Dan Lang heading their onsite physical therapy department, and the Integrity Orthopedics team, I am able to enjoy an active lifestyle. I am again able to travel, exercise, and function in every aspect of managing my daily activities. I am pain free, with no medication. I never thought it would be possible, but here I am!
