Center for Orthopedic Excellence
As a division of Illinois Valley Community Hospital, the IVCH Center for Orthopedic Excellence offers you the same high level of care and service that you expect from our family of medical groups. In fact, we have been recognized by HealthGrades—one of the nation’s leading independent health care ratings organizations—for outstanding patient outcomes for seven years running! Among the honors they have bestowed upon us are the Orthopedic Surgery Excellence Award™ for 2013 and Joint Replacement Excellence Award™ for six years in a row (2007-2012).
Our award-winning team is adept at diagnosing, treating and surgically repairing almost any musculoskeletal condition, including arthritis, fractures, sports injuries and many more. However, we take a conservative approach, exploring nonsurgical options before considering surgery. This strategy helps ensure our patients are not prematurely encouraged to undergo more serious procedures when a simpler one may be all that is necessary to restore full function.
When surgery is required, our patients not only benefit from the skills of our board-certified orthopedic surgeons – Peter J. Meier, MD, and Robert J Mitchell, DO – but also from the excellent follow-up care and physical therapy they will receive from the staff at the IVCH Center for Physical Rehabilitation and Aquatics, the most modern rehab facility in northern Illinois!
- Arthritis management
- Carpal tunnel syndrome

Plus, we give you access to two of the most innovative joint replacement procedures available today: anterior hip replacement and knee replacement using an implant called the Stryker Triathlon Custom Fit Knee® with ShapeMatch® Technology. Both of these operations result in faster recoveries, allowing our patients to get back to living their lives to the fullest more quickly.
