How to Get the Right Orthopedic Care, Right Away

Are you searching for a facility that treats musculoskeletal pain and injuries quickly? Urgently Ortho is a full-service orthopedic clinic staffed by a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and two  physicians board-certified in anesthesiology and pain management, one of whom also specializes in regenerative medicine. With this broad range of expertise, our practice sees people of all ages, from children with broken bones to weekend warriors with sprained ankles to seniors having trouble with painful arthritis. 

From your neck, shoulder, elbows, and fingers to your knees, ankles, feet, and toes, Urgently Ortho staff members treat patients for emergency needs as well as for chronic conditions. 

Pediatric fractures 

Your child has hurt himself and may have a broken arm or leg. Your Urgently Ortho board-certified physician is specially trained to care for your child’s broken bones. A pediatric fracture requires special care because, if not treated properly, it can impact the development of the joint associated with the bone. A cast, traction, or bone realignment? Your Urgently Ortho board-certified physician is expertly trained to offer the appropriate care for your child’s broken bone. 

Knee pain

Meniscus tears in the knee are a common problem for sports enthusiasts of all ages. You can tear this knee cartilage by twisting a bent knee suddenly while playing basketball, tennis, soccer, or even when dancing. Once the meniscus is torn, it can’t repair itself. We provide arthroscopic knee repair that gets you back in the game. 

Knee pain can also be caused by arthritis, cysts, sprains, strains, and other conditions. Regenerative medicine with platelet-rich plasma has shown promise for knee pain stemming from arthritis. Your Urgently Ortho physician provides expert diagnosis and treatment. 

Shoulder pain

Shoulder pain can be caused by sprains and strains, a dislocation, or conditions known as impingement and frozen shoulder, among other issues. 

Perhaps swimming laps or tennis is your preferred form of exercise. Both require repetitive shoulder movements that can stress your biceps tendon. As a result, you’re more at risk of a biceps tendon tear as it moves from your shoulder joint into the socket. Assembly line and warehouse workers are also at increased risk of a biceps tendon tear. If you need surgery, we repair the tendon using recent advances and make very small incisions. 

Elbow pain

Have you sprained your elbow? You’ve damaged a ligament. It may simply be stretched, but it could be partially or completely torn. A damaged elbow ligament is often an overuse injury; if you play softball or baseball, the throwing motion can cause small tears and get bigger over a period of time. 

If the pain is on the outside of your elbow, you may be diagnosed with tennis elbow. The tendons that connect to the muscles in your forearm are inflamed or may have small tears. Tennis elbow is also often caused by repetitive motions of your hand, wrist, and forearm; for example, carpenters using screwdrivers or gardeners using spades. If caught early, both tennis elbow and elbow ligament damage can often be managed by rest, ice, compression, and physical therapy, but we also specialize in elbow ligament and tendon repair surgery using minimally invasive techniques.  

Elbow pain is also caused by bursitis, partial dislocation, a stress fracture, and more. Our physicians provide the correct diagnosis and treatment for your elbow pain. 

Ankle and foot pain 

Sprained ankles are a common orthopedic injury; you’ve stretched or torn ligaments connecting bones in your ankle joint. You could also have an ankle strain, injuring the muscles that attach to your ankle bone. 

Your feet are complex mechanisms that support your body. Did you know that your foot has 28 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments? From conditions ranging from bunions, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and gout to arthritis, you receive expert treatment from physicians specially trained in your body’s musculoskeletal system. 

Regenerative medicine 

Regenerative medicine is changing the landscape of orthopedic practice. Research on how to use the body’s own cells to help it heal is ongoing and provides promising results. Depending on your case, our physicians may be able to offer you the option of treatment with platelet-rich plasma rather than minimally invasive surgery. This plasma is your own blood reconfigured and injected into the painful area; it contains growth factors and nutrients that rush to the damaged tissue to promote faster healing.
