Wisconsin Sen. Dan Feyen (R-Fond du Lac) is scheduled to visit Orthopedic & Sports Institute’s Oshkosh location at 600 N. Koeller St. from 10:30 to 11 a.m. on Friday, June 11. Media is invited to attend.
Feyen’s visit will focus on learning more about and supporting the ambulatory surgery center model of care, which drives down healthcare costs. He serves as the Senate GOP assistant majority leader and represents the state’s 18th Senate District, which covers parts of Winnebago, Fond du Lac, and Dodge counties.
OSI was designed to reduce healthcare costs and improve patient care by combining everything necessary for non-surgical, surgical, and post-surgical orthopedic care into one convenient place – an ambulatory surgery center.
“Senator Feyen’s support of our organization is a nod to the physicians and providers who treat patients at our facility, but also to all the lawmakers and employees behind the scenes who work to carry out this vision,” said Curt Kubiak, OSI’s CEO and president of the board of directors for the Association of Wisconsin Surgery Centers. “We believe that elite orthopedic care should be affordable and accessible to everyone, and OSI is making that happen.”
OSI’s Oshkosh location opened in 2018 and has continued to grow steadily since. It is staffed five days a week by physicians and advanced practice clinicians who are trained to diagnose and treat every aspect of muscle, bone, and joint care. Earlier this year it opened an orthopedic walk-in clinic to treat new, urgent injuries and conditions like sprains, breaks, dislocations, and joint or tendon pain.
