Certification & Education

Jordan M. Meiss, MD was raised on a family operated corn, soybean and hog farm in Gridley, Illinois where he developed a determined work ethic. With a knack for school and the sciences, an interest in the human body and strong desire to serve and help people, Dr. Meiss was led to medicine, specifically orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.

Dr. Meiss thoroughly enjoys spending time getting to know patients and caring for them as he would family. His approach is to maximize nonoperative care, but when necessary, utilize surgical specialties to get patients back to health. Establishing trust and rapport with a patient and then using his training and expertise to improve their quality of life is very rewarding.

Dr. Meiss and his wife have two beautiful children whom are their pride and joy. Their family is involved with a local church and Dr. Meiss participates in the community by attending and providing medical coverage for local high school and college sporting events. Dr. Meiss is excited and thankful to be working and living in Peoria, where Gridley, the farm and his family are just a short drive away.

In regards to hobbies, Dr. Meiss enjoys many genres of music, plays the guitar and loves to be outdoors doing activities such as fishing and hiking, as well as working on the farm. When confined to indoors he is fond of strategy board gaming. Naturally, he enjoys participating in almost any competitive sport or game and is a sports fan of his alma mater University of Illinois, as well as his adopted teams; Syracuse Orange and Vanderbilt Commodores.

What Patients Are Saying

I liked him a lot! Gentle, kind, and was able to understand him.

I have been through a couple ordeals in the last 3 years or so. OSF has saved my life once and given me back my physical health. The ability to walk comfortably with little to no pain has been liberating.

I would like to thank Dr. Meiss for the fine work he does and service he provides to his patients. Our lives are enriched because of his commitment to helping people live a richer and fuller life without pain.

The doctor was very thorough in my examination before surgery and after I am so glad to have met Dr. Meiss.

Dr. Meiss has been exceptional and did a great job on my shoulder replacement and subsequent care. Could not have asked for a better experience in an unpleasant situation.

Dr. Jordan Meiss is an excellent surgical doctor. He is a warm and professional and informative doctor who communicates well with his patients. It is very evident that his surgical standard is nothing less than perfection. He represents the finest of surgeons well! He replaced my shoulder and now I am pain free after 10 years of pain every day. It gave me such a peace in my heart to know that he seeks his wisdom from God in all circumstances he faces in surgery. He carries himself with confident humility. He is a valuable asset to the medical profession.
