The roots of SportsMed-Wheaton Orthopaedics go back to February of 1973, when two orthopaedic surgeons began a general orthopaedic practice known as Wheaton Orthopaedics, Ltd. The practice was located in the Mona Kea Medical Park in Carol Stream. Dr. Richard H. Dominguez was one of the founding partners of the group.
The clinic's orthopaedic surgery staff grew with the addition of Dr. Paul Groen in 1976 and Dr. Stephen Baker in 1980. Dr. Richard Erickson joined in 1990.
Since then Dr. Groen retired from clinical medicine in 1992. Sadly in December 1995 Dr. Richard Dominguez lost his life in an automobile accident. His pioneering spirit, medical expertise, and spiritual strength provide all of us with a great legacy.
In 1979 the growing orthopaedic practice and physical therapy department responded to the need for additional space by moving to 501 Thornhill Drive in Carol Stream. The name of SportsMed was added to reflect the physicians' desire and commitment to specialize in sports medicine. They also planned to develop a fitness center where members could approach exercise through medically safe, sound, and enjoyable programs.
The opportunity to do this became available in October of 1985 when the present building at 327 Gundersen Drive in Carol Stream became available. The orthopaedic practice moved into this location and in 1986 construction began on the facility creating SportsMed Center for Fitness.
In the spring of 2007, ATI took over the leadership of SportsMed's physical therapy services. At the same time ATI also took ownership of Sportsmed's Center for Fitness which has been renovated and now reopened as ATI Fitness Center.
Our current staff includes three board certified orthopaedic surgeons, Dr. Stephen Baker, Dr. Richard Erickson and Dr. Kellen Choi, and Dr. Jennifer Felske, a board certified podiatric surgeon. Presently, SportsMed-Wheaton Orthopaedics also has a satellite office offering orthopaedic treatment at 636 Raymond Drive in Naperville. ATI offers physical therapy services adjacent to our Carol Stream and Naperville locations. Our surgical care is delivered at Central DuPage Hospital, Edward Hospital, Glen Oaks Medical Center, Center for Surgery in Naperville and Valley Ambulatory Surgery Center in St. Charles. In 2007 and again in 2008, Central DuPage Hospital was recognized as one of the TOP 50 Hospitals in the United States for excellence in Orthopaedic Surgery.
