 Orthopedic Care at OrthoIndy

At OrthoIndy, we are committed to the health and wellbeing of our patients, employees and community.    

As an organization, we are staying on top of updates and recommendations directed by the CDC and State Department of Health. Our immediate concern is keeping our patients and employees safe from the COVID-19 outbreak; therefore, we temporarily consolidated our clinics to a few locations. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but we believe this is the best course of action to keep everyone safe.  

Effective April 27th, we began performing elective outpatient surgery on a select low-risk patient population. Our team is working to reschedule previously canceled procedures. If you have any questions, please call 317.802.2000. 

We would like to remind our patients and urgent care walk-ins of safety precautions to help protect the community from COVID-19. The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings. Please wear a face covering at your next OrthoIndy appointment. 

OrthoIndy Northwest and South are currently open. Read more below for specific hours for open locations. 

The following services are still available at this location. Please click on the link for location details and updated hours.

Visitor restrictions are in place to help the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses. No visitors are allowed in our facilities. The only exceptions include: One parent or guardian for those patients under the age of 18.  (It must be the same person. The visitor may not swap out with others.)  No one with any symptoms of an illness, including those for COVID-19, will be allowed to visit any of our facilities. No one who has had direct exposure to someone with a known infection of COVID-19 will be allowed to visit any of our facilities. If you are showing any symptoms of illness, including COVID-19, please reschedule your appointment. If you recently had surgery and are experiencing a complication, please call our office immediately at 317.802.2000.  There will be a screening process upon arrival where a member of our team will check your temperature and ask you a few questions.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus that had not been previously identified in humans. The virus causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever and in more severe cases, pneumonia. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently and avoiding touching your face.
