Des Plaines-based Illinois Bone & Joint Institute is preparing to resume elective surgeries on May 11 in accordance with Gov. J.B. Pritzker's recent guidance, the Daily Herald reports.

The most critical surgeries and procedures that have been waiting the longest will be rescheduled first.

Orthopedic procedures will include spine surgery for nerve compression, severe joint replacements and new rotator cuff repairs.

All patients will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening test 72 hours prior to surgery.

The practice's Des Plaines office facility is offering on-site testing for surgery patients.
