Updated: January 4, 2022

Illinois Bone and Joint Institute (IBJI) continues to make your health and safety a priority.  We are monitoring the updated recommendations and guidelines released by the CDC and IDPH and will be acting in accordance with the most up-to-date guidance available.

The CDC continues to maintain that getting vaccinated is the best way to protect against COVID-19, and strongly encourages vaccination for everyone five years and older, and boosters for everyone 16 and older.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding your orthopedic care.

If you are experiencing any COVID like symptoms, or have recently tested positive for COVID, please contact your specific office location to reschedule your visit or to schedule a Telehealth remote visit. IBJI has in place Telemedicine options so that we can ensure that all your Clinical needs are met in an appropriate time frame. We appreciate your consideration of others by reporting your possible COVID health conditions as it keeps our Communities safe as we collectively navigate the current surge being experienced across the country.

COVID-19 Restricted Visitor Policy

To protect our patients and employees, we request you review the restricted visitor policy. An IBJI patient should come alone to all appointments unless a support person is needed. This policy is effective as of 01/04/22 and applies to all IBJI Physician Offices, IBJI Rehabilitation Services Locations, IBJI MRI and Imaging Locations, and DME Services. 

We will accommodate patients requiring additional accompaniment including:  

  • Those under the age of 18 years old
  • Nurse Case Managers
  • Interpreters and/or Translators
  • Support Persons for those patients who require assistance during the office visit

All patients and support persons will be screened before entering the clinic space. If needed, we may ask visitors to wait outside the clinic or we may reschedule an appointment if the screening process identifies a potential COVID risk.

In-Office Safety Protocols

IBJI clinics are open during normal business hours.  Our providers, therapists, diagnostic imaging, and DME services are available to provide the full array of services during this time.

We are committed to continuing to provide patients with the highest quality orthopedic care while practicing the principles of social distancing and preventative measures to curtail the transmission of COVID-19.  

IBJI’s current safety protocols include:

  • Mandatory mask policy
  • Screening of patients and employees
  • Social Distancing in our facilities 
  • Enhanced cleaning measures

Elective Surgery

All surgical patients undergo COVID-19 testing 72 hours before their surgical date. Please discuss with your clinical team for further information. 

Telemedicine and Telehealth

IBJI continues to support telemedicine visits for those who prefer this type of appointment.  Call your specific office location to talk with an IBJI representative about the availability of these options for your desired location or provider.
