Barrington Orthopedic Specialists (BOS), an established orthopedic practice with locations in Schaumburg, Bartlett, Buffalo Grove, and Elk Grove Village, is proud to introduce two new providers to its team of highly trained surgeons: Dr. Hans Zhang and Dr. Rohan Gopinath.
Dr. Hans Zhang is a board-eligible, fellowship-trained spine surgeon. He has mastered many techniques to help patients get back to activities of daily living sooner, including minimally invasive, robotic, and endoscopic approaches. Dr. Zhang also believes in the value of motion-sparing surgery, such as disc replacement and laminoplasty, as well as muscle-sparing surgical techniques.
When asked what he finds most rewarding about being a spine surgeon, Dr. Zhang was happy to share. “The most satisfying part of my work is hearing a patient get back to their lives and getting better, either with or without surgery,” he said. “That’s always the goal every day, and it’s truly a privilege to help care for our patients.”
Dr. Zhang earned his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, NC, where he also completed his training in orthopedic surgery. He then went on to a combined orthopedic and neurosurgical spine fellowship at the Leatherman Spine Center in Louisville, KY.
Dr. Rohan Gopinath, also board-eligible and fellowship-trained, specializes in minimally invasive primary and revision joint replacement. He has advanced training in robotic-assisted total knee and total hip replacements, partial knee replacement, as well as the anterior approach to total hip replacement.
Dr. Gopinath is excited about the potential for innovation at BOS. “Once noted as the procedure of the century, hip replacements are incredibly successful procedures. However, in the past few decades, advances such as muscle-sparing approaches, improvements in implants, and robotic guidance have helped surgeons tackle many complex issues in hip arthritis,” he says. “Such technology can also help patients recover faster after surgery and get the most out of their hip replacements.”
Dr. Gopinath obtained his medical degree from the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, MI and completed his residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center/Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, MD. He went on to complete joint replacement fellowship training at the Northshore Orthopaedic & Spine Institute in Skokie, IL.
The arrival of these two exceptional physicians signals a time of growth for BOS that promises to help its patients achieve even more effective outcomes.
