Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine was named to the 2021 Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Privately Held Companies in the U.S. The company is committed to providing a complete range of orthopedic care, from bones, to joints, to spines, to muscles, and more.
Genesis takes a service-for-all approach in the care provided. Their mission is to push healthcare forward and move away from the current model that just doesn’t work anymore. Genesis believes the national capacity for medical care is remarkable – and the current system is underestimating it. They are establishing a new model where all people are valued and treated, regardless of economic status, with ethical pricing, and where surgery is seen as a last resort and not a preferred revenue source.
After 17 years of conventional practice, Genesis went back to the drawing board four years ago and asked themselves what needed to change to serve everyone, not just the lucky few who could afford their services. The team reinvented their care delivery model by trying different ideas and studying models worldwide until they discovered a blueprint for delivering high-quality care while making the prices more ethical and affordable.
The company now has a patient base that is 75 percent Medicaid-eligible, in comparison to almost zero percent for most orthopedic practices. They serve patients in seven locations across Chicagoland.
Dr. Hythem Shadid, President and Orthopedic Surgeon at Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with the American Board of Orthopedic Surgeons and has been in practice since 1994. He is a distinguished researcher and specializes in advanced knee, hip, and shoulder conditions. He previously served as the team orthopedic physician for the men’s and women’s U.S. national soccer teams.
“We’re tremendously humbled by the trust our patients place in us to solve their most pressing orthopedic challenges, and we come alongside each patient’s journey with the same expertise, commitment, and passion we’ve become known for over the past 21 years,” Dr. Shadid said. “Equity in healthcare is extremely important to us, so we’re dedicated to ensuring that our practice is welcoming to everyone, regardless of income, wealth, or insurance status. Everyone is welcome at Genesis, and we’re excited for what the future holds as we press forward into new possibilities for serving those in orthopedic need.”
