Urgent Notice

As of February of 2021, Dr. Wallskog has been off work on an extended medical leave. He developed a condition known as Transverse Myelitis after receiving his first Moderna Covid vaccine. This condition involves an injury to his thoracic spinal cord. While he can walk short distances, he is unable to return to work as an orthopedic surgeon at this time.

He remains committed to his patients despite being off on medical leave. In the past, he has recommended his patients see his trusted physician assistant, Cody Zimmerman. However, Advocate Aurora Healthcare has decided to terminate Cody. For emergencies as always, please contact 911 or seek care in an emergency room. For patients that I have previously operated on who need continued care, please email me at This is an encrypted HIPAA compliant email.
