We regret to inform you our practice will close on February 28, 2017. This has not been an easy decision. As the delivery of healthcare has significantly changed, we must change how we deliver healthcare at Northwestern Center for Orthopedics. We plan to make the transition an easy experience for everyone.

John A. Hefferon, MD will be treating his patient population as he joins the distinguished group of orthopedic surgeons at Northwestern Medical Group (NMG). To make an appointment with Dr. Hefferon please call 312-695-6800. His new office is located in Lavin Pavilion, 259 E. Erie, on the 13th floor.

Proctor R. Anderson, MD has decided to close his Illinois practice and relocate to the Colorado area. His patients can transfer their care to Dr. Hefferon upon request or to Dr. Gordon Nuber who can be reached at 312-695-6800.

If you will continue to treat with John A. Hefferon, MD you do not need to obtain a copy of your records. Your records will follow you to Northwestern Medicine Group. Should you want another physician to have a copy of your medical records, please complete the attached authorization form and return it to our office no later than February 28, 2017. The office will be open for patients to pick up their records from the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Fridays. After February 28, 2017, please call 312-943-7850 for all medical records requests. All requests must be made no later than April 15, 2017.

We sincerely thank you for the opportunity to have treated you at Northwestern Center for Orthopedics. It has been our privilege to provide you with your orthopedic care.
