Orthopedic Walk-In Clinic
What is a Walk-in Clinic?
In the past, broken bones or serious joint injury treated on a Saturday meant spending hours in the emergency room or urgent care with no guarantee of seeing an specialist. Now you have a better option. At our Saturday Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic, our region’s leading orthopedic specialists are available to you on a walk-in, no appointment basis. Most major insurance accepted.
How is an Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic Different?
Injuries like broken bones and torn muscles and ligaments often require immediate treatment to ensure the injury heals properly. In many cases ER or urgent care facilities simply do not have a specialist immediately on staff, meaning you will have to make additional appointments that could delay treatment.
Our Orthopedic Walk-in Clinic was developed to treat new bone and joint injuries and provide you with immediate access to quality orthopedic care on Saturday. The Saturday Walk-in Clinic is staffed by the specialists from Pontchartrain Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and features on site x-ray, bracing, casting and injections when necessary.
