Surgery Centers

OrthoIllinois’ state-of-the-art Surgery Centers are representative of its commitment to comprehensive patient care. OrthoIllinois Surgery Center is conveniently located on the same campus as our main Rockford clinical building, and OrthoWisconsin Surgery Center is located just over the Wisconsin border off of I-90.  The Centers’ physicians and staff utilize leading-edge technology and provide personalized care in a cost-effective manner.  In fact, OrthoIllinois Surgery Center was one of the first ancillary surgery centers in the US to perform total joint replacements as out patient procedures.  Today, qualifying patients can utilize the centers for shoulder, knee, and hip replacement surgeries, including the Direct Anterior Approach Hip Replacement.

The OrthoIllinois Surgery Center and OrthoWisconsin Surgery Center 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.

Our goal is to ensure unparalleled surgical and medical care for each of our patients.

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 Center in Rockford is one of a select few ambulatory surgery centers in the country to employ our own anesthesiologists to help ensure the highest level of cohesion for team consistency and quality.

Representing the finest in professional and technical competency, we are committed to your personal comfort and professional care, using the latest medical technology, advanced procedures, and state-of-the-art equipment.
