    Hi, my name's Matt Melander and I'm an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine and I work at Signature Orthopedics St. Charles.

    I'm a huge sports fan. Myself - I'm an endurance athlete and I see athletes of all ages. So that's what really got me into the sports medicine aspect of my practice and that's what I like to focus on when I practice here in the office and in surgery.

    I think there's a special connection when I work with the athletes. They can be reassured that not only they're getting good orthopedic care but from someone who can relate to them as an athlete.

    My favorite part of the job that I do is making people better. The patient comes first and I really try and make them feel like even though I see quite a few patients a day - they may only have 5 minutes with me - I want to make that patient feel like they've spent 5 hours with me. I want to get a complete understanding of their orthopedic diagnosis, treatment options, and what might be best for them: really a complete evaluation of their reason for being in the office.

"Dr. Melander is very professional, and I felt confident that he took his time and used his expertise to help diagnose my problem."
