Greetings, Friends!
We have some exciting news to share with you!

North East Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine (NEO) of Tupelo and North Mississippi Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Clinic (NMSMO) of Tupelo are uniting to form the Orthopaedic Institute of North Mississippi.

Why are these two groups joining together? The answer is simple. The NMSMO doctors and NEO doctors have decided to combine their groups in order to make sure that their friends and neighbors in the Tupelo community and surrounding areas are getting the BEST Orthopaedic care possible.

Dr. Barry Clark from South Carolina will be joining the Orthopaedic Institute of North Mississippi team. With this addition, the Orthopaedic Institute of North Mississippi team will be made up of 7 Doctors:

Dr. Barry Clark: Hip and Knee Replacement Specialist

Dr. Bryan Fagan: Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Specialist

Dr. Eric Lewis: Orthopaedic Hand and Microsurgery Specialist

Dr. William Pillow: Knee, Shoulder and Sports Medicine Specialist

Dr. Gabe Rulewicz: Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy and Shoulder Replacement Specialist

Dr. Stephen Southworth: Hip and Knee Replacement Specialist

Dr. Nels Thorderson: Foot and Ankle Specialist

The Orthopaedic Institute of North Mississippi is proud to have such a qualified group of Orthopaedic doctors as well as 2 Nurse Practitioners, 2 Physician Assistants, 5 nurses, and several other support staff members. The OI team is ready to continue taking care of patients and providing them with the state-of-the-art care they deserve.

The Orthopaedic Institute of North Mississippi’s commitment to providing the BEST Orthopaedic care is only enhanced and made stronger by the combination of these two groups. The Orthopaedic Institute of North Mississippi sets the bar of excellence as the provider of the best patient-centered, family-centered, and caregiver-centered Orthopaedic care and services not only in our region, but in America.

During the month of August, patients will continue seeing their doctors at the NMSMO & NEO locations. The newly formed Orthopaedic Institute of North Mississippi will officially be under one roof at the current NEO location, which is 499 Gloster Creek Village, STE G1, Tupelo, MS 38801, starting on September 4th. All appointments will take place at this location starting on September 4th, 2018.
