We at Orthopaedic Institute of Southern Illinois are committed to continuing to provide the highest quality and safest orthopaedic care to the people of Southern Illinois.

In the interest of protecting our patients and employees, we have instituted the following procedures:

All patients will be screened according to CDC recommendations via telephone prior to their scheduled appointment date. These recommendations include screening for a fever, cough, shortness of breath. Upon arriving at any of our facilities, all people will be screen upon arrival.

We will not be allowing any visitors to accompany patients with the exception of a single parent accompanying a minor or a designated caregiver accompanying an impaired adult.

At this time, we will continue to provide full physician services in the office as well as physical and occupational therapy, imaging, pain management, and Urgent Care services for your urgent orthopaedic needs.

We are working closely with our hospital partners for the continued provision of urgent and emergent orthopaedic care.
