Dr. Karas is a Chicagoland native, whose goal is to care for the people and give back the community by helping people overcome hip and knee pain and get them back to the activities they enjoy.
He believes it is his role as an orthopaedic surgeon, and doctor, to get to know his patients, address their fears and concerns, and ultimately empower them to overcome their pain and restore them to their activities, loved ones, and passions. He believes in spending time with people, communication, and using the latest technologies alongside a humanistic and down-to-earth approach to patient care.

From nonsurgical treatments such as physical therapy or injections to replacement surgery, to complex reconstruction surgery, Dr. Karas is a well-trained surgeon and loyal advocate for his patients.
“As a fellowship trained surgeon, one of my biggest responsibilities and best parts of my job is to earn my patients’ trust. Whether they have had a hip or knee replacement, continue to have pain, are seeking a second opinion or need a joint replacement for osteoarthritis, it is my privilege to care for the people of Chicagoland and I look forward to welcoming them in my practice."
