What should I do if I suspect I have a broken bone or dislocated joint?
If you suspect you have a broken bone or dislocated joint, seek immediate medical attention. Do not attempt to “reset” the bone or joint on your own, as this can cause further damage. Keep the affected area still and elevated, if possible, and apply ice to reduce swelling and pain.
How quickly can I expect to be seen by a specialist in an emergency orthopedic situation?
At Rogozinski Orthopedic Clinic, we understand the urgency of your situation. We strive to provide same-day appointments for all patients with acute orthopedic injuries. Our goal is to deliver prompt and effective treatment to address your pain and mitigate the potential long-term effects of orthopedic injuries.
What types of injuries or conditions warrant a visit to the emergency orthopedic clinic versus a regular urgent care facility?
If you suspect you have a severe orthopedic injury, such as a broken bone or dislocated joint, or are experiencing severe pain and swelling, it is best to come directly to our emergency orthopedic clinic. If you are unsure, you can always call us for advice on how to proceed.
For other, less urgent concerns, like mild sprains and strains, you may be able to receive care at a regular urgent care facility or make an appointment with one of our specialists.
Can I come directly to the emergency orthopedic clinic, or do I need a referral from my primary care physician or another healthcare provider?
In most cases, you do not need a referral to visit our emergency orthopedic clinic. Simply call us to schedule an appointment or come directly to our office if you have an urgent need.
However, if you have a referral from another healthcare provider, please bring it with you to your appointment so that we can coordinate your care as effectively as possible.
