Surgery Centers

OrthoIllinois’ state-of-the-art Surgery Centers are representative of its commitment to comprehensive patient care.  The Centers’ physicians and staff utilize leading-edge technology and provide personalized care in a cost-effective manner.  Our goal is to ensure unparalleled surgical and medical care for each of our patients.

Industry Leading Care

Advanced and early adaptors of the latest techniques.  OrthoIllinois surgeons are trained in the very latest surgical techniques and often train other surgeons from around the world in these techniques.  Here, in 2016, an OrthoIllinois surgeon performed one of the first outpatient total knee replacements performed in an ambulatory surgery center setting in the U.S.  Today, knee, hip and shoulder replacements are common daily out-patient procedures performed at the centers along with spine, arthroscopic, hand/upper extremity, and foot and ankle surgeries.

State of the art technology.  Our surgery centers are equipped with the latest technology to ensure the most accurate and efficient surgical care.  In fact, our OrthoMidwest Surgery Center located in Beloit, Wisconsin is equipped with an Intelligent Operating Room system that uses advanced technologies including artificial intelligence capabilities to optimize workflow and minimize manual activities, allowing more time for patient care. Each of its four operating rooms are equipped with this state-of-the-art equipment utilizing the most advanced medical technology available. The data collected ensures total joint surgeons more precise and accurate implant position for more consistent results. In addition, manual activities typically performed by the care team are reduced, offering efficiency and the ability to focus more fully on the patient.

Skilled and dedicated care teams.  The surgery centers offer the very best in patient care with board certified/admissible physicians, experienced anesthesiologists, and dedicated nurses and technicians. This surgical team works together to provide a sterile and safe surgical environment. OrthoIllinois Surgery Centers and OrthoMidwest Surgery Center are of a select few ambulatory surgery centers in the country to employ our own anesthesiologists.

Offering convenience, cost, and safety benefits.  Ambulatory surgery centers are ideal for surgery or pain management procedures that do not require an overnight hospital stay. This means patients arrive at the center on the day of the surgery, undergo the surgical procedure in an operating room, and recuperate under the care of our experienced nursing staff. When ready, the patient is escorted that same day by a family member or companion to continue recovery in the comfort of their own home. Each member of our staff strives to provide a comfortable experience to ensure a complete and faster recovery.

OrthoMidwest Surgery Center is focused on spine and total hip & knee replacement procedures, offering the additional benefit of six beautiful and comfortable B4Home Stay Suites (SM) to accommodate patients wishing to stay up to 24 hours at the center before going home.

For OrthoIllinois patients undergoing outpatient procedures at any of our ambulatory surgery centers offer the additional benefits of:

  • Convenience and the ability to recover in the comfort of your own home offers a less-stressful experience.
  • Safety.  Ambulatory surgery centers have a lower risk of infection compared to hospital settings.
