Sudden Injury: ER or Immediate Ortho Care?

 Life is full of unplanned events - injuries being a common one! Rather if missing a step that leads to a hard fall, or a young all-star dislocating something during game time, injuries occur. Orthopaedic Associates is here to help with those moments - but what injuries does our Immediate Ortho Care see?

 Orthopaedic Associates providers are ready to see patients with higher acuity injuries than traditional orthopaedic urgent care such as dislocations, fractures, or other non-life threatening orthopaedic injuries. Our providers specialize in a list of types of studies including sports medicine, foot and ankle, hand and microsurgery, spine care, and joint pain. Immediate Ortho Care visits tend to be more cost-friendly and have a shorter wait to see an orthopaedic specialist compared to an emergency room.

Emergency room visits are more appropriate for life-threatening cases.
