Results for Surgeons
For surgeons, it means giving them the right amount of service and time-saving innovations to support their pursuit of optimal outcomes for their patients.
Value for Hospitals
For hospital admins, it's giving them the opportunity to cut costs without impacting quality of patient care or working relationships with their physicians.
Success for Patients
Most importantly, it gives hospitals a chance to do right by their patients — to pass cost savings along to their patients, who can heal without burdening their finances today and in the future.
"Unfortunately, surgeries can become an expensive undertaking for everyone involved. Any opportunity I have to lower costs and still provide the same quality care for my patients, while not burdening them with more costs as a result, is the right thing to do."
- Dr. Owen Kelly, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Russellville, AR
Surgical Service Line Director

"OIC is a company with a revolutionary idea. Why not make orthopaedic implants affordable for both healthcare providers and patients? The OIC products are high quality and easy to use by our surgeons. I am very happy to say that OIC products are used in my facility."
Director of Supply Chain
"I couldn’t believe the pricing. I kept wondering when the catch would come and it never did. OIC strives to provide transparency around cost that the established vendors work so hard to veil."
