Orthopedic Institute Announces Grand Opening of New Clinic in Mitchell

Orthopedic Institute Officially Expands Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Care to Mitchell and Central South Dakota Residents with the Grand Opening of a New Office on August 16, 2023.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Aug. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Orthopedic Institute (OI) will hold a Grand Opening of its new Orthopedic Institute Mitchell clinic, conveniently located on South Burr Street, one block north of Interstate 90, on Wednesday, from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm, August 16th. The Mitchell Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4:45 pm. The building will be open to the public for tours.

“We are proud to invest in the communities we serve. For nearly 25 years, we have rented office space in Mitchell. Building a new facility dedicated to orthopedics and sports medicine enables us to provide patients with the best possible care close to home,” said Dr. Matthew McKenzie, a surgeon at OI.

The 9,000-square-foot clinic features 12 clinical exam and procedure rooms, including two fluoroscopy suites designed with patient convenience, comfort, and access. Occupational therapy, x-ray, and OI’s SmartChoice™️ MRI are also inside the clinic.

“This new clinic also enables us to meet the increasing demand for non-opioid pain management care,” said OI CEO Lynda Barrie. “Because we accept nearly all insurance plans, including most Sanford and Avera insurance plans, we can serve the entire region.”

Construction of the new clinic at 1300 S. Burr St. began in Spring 2022. It took less than 12 months to build and represents a short move from the old location across the parking lot at 1204 S. Burr St.

Orthopedic Institute physicians serving the new Mitchell location will include Keith M. Baumgarten, MD, David B. Jones, Jr., MD, Matthew J. McKenzie, MD, Luke H. Rasmussen, MD, Brent R. Thurness, MD, and Eric S. Watson, MD. In addition to handling orthopedic and sports medicine needs from sprains, strains, and fractures to the most complex total joint preservation, reconstruction, or replacement procedures, as well as both non-surgical and surgical spine care needs and pain management with non-opioid solutions, the new and expanded office will facilitate pain procedures such as image-guided epidural injections and minor hand procedures such as carpal tunnel surgery.

With an average star rating of over 4.9 out of 5 on Google My Business, the highest consumer satisfaction rating in the region, OI offers an extraordinary patient experience that inspires individuals to live stronger.
