Robert J. Daley, M.D.


Partner, Hinsdale Orthopaedics


Dr. Daley is one of Chicagoland’s leading surgeons in the areas of robotic assisted total knee replacement, minimally invasive knee replacement, partial knee replacement, and knee arthroscopy. Dr. Daley gained national prominence when, as team physician for the Chicago White Sox, he performed Bo Jackson’s total hip replacement, allowing Jackson to successfully return to playing professional baseball. He also performed artificial knee replacement surgery on Dan Hampton, an NFL Hall of Fame defensive tackle for the Chicago Bears.

Dr. Daley is involved in the design and development of surgical implants for several manufacturers, giving him additional insight into determining the best solutions for his patients. Dr. Daley is a pioneer in the field of robotic assisted total knee replacement which allows him to remove the damaged portion of the knee through a smaller incision and precisely place the implant.
