Before open MRIâ€™s, before hip replacements and before arthroscopy surgeries, in 1972, Midwest Orthopaedic Institute brought the first Orthopaedic physicians to DeKalb County. Over the years we recruited the brightest and the best physicians with expertise in subspecialty areas such as shoulder, hand and wrist, hip and knee, foot and ankle.
Midwest Orthopaedic InstituteÂ continues to grow in order to provide the best orthopaedic care available. Recently we brought in the area’s first full time rheumatologist to help serve our communityâ€™s arthritic and elderly population. Over the years we have succeeded in hiring physicians with world-class credentials and down home bedside manners.
Our state-of-the-art facilities have expanded in order to provide our patients with the most comprehensive care in the area. Here are a few of the specialized services MOI has available to our patientsâ€¦
- Extremity MRI
- DEXA- bone density testing
- Full range of rehabilitation services equipment
- Durable medical equipment such as crutches, custom and standard braces, and splints.
- X-ray machines
All of the orthopaedic specialists at the institute have gone beyond their specialty training and have completed fellowships to become sub-specialists. We now have Centers of Excellence in foot and ankle, hip and knee, shoulder and elbow, hand, sports-related injuries, total joint replacement and rheumatology.
