Our Story

In 1972, before the era of open MRIs, hip replacement, and arthroscopic surgery, Midwest Orthopaedic Institute brought the first orthopaedic physicians to DeKalb County. Since then, MOI has continued to recruit the finest orthopaedic specialists in the country. All of the orthopaedic specialists currently practicing at MOI are further distinguished by having completed fellowships in sub-specialties, placing them at the highest levels of their profession.

These highly trained physicians anchor MOI’s “Centers of Excellence,” which focus respectively on the areas of Foot and Ankle, Hip and Knee, Shoulder and Elbow, Hand and Wrist, Sports Injuries, and Joint Replacement. Most recently, MOI has added to this list by recruiting a full-time Rheumatologist to serve the needs of our community’s seniors, and others who may be faced with the challenges of arthritis.

Because comprehensive care requires both excellent physicians and state-of-the-art resources, MOI has continued to expand its facilities over the years and to acquire the most sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic equipment available. Below are just a few of the services available to our patients:

  • On-site blood work
  • A full range of rehabilitation services equipment
  • Mobility aids, such as crutches, custom and standard braces, and splints
  • X-ray
  • MRI

All of our physicians have earned world-class credentials, but they never forget the importance of a down-home bedside manner.

After five decades, Midwest Orthopaedic Institute continues to be a place where excellence and a caring attitude come together.
