Boston Children's Hospital’s Orthopedic Center provides same-day, urgent care by world-class orthopedic specialists in Boston, Waltham and Peabody. With a physician’s referral, children can be treated for injuries and musculoskeletal problems not serious enough for the Emergency Department (ED), but still require quick evaluation and care.
Patients are often seen on the day they get hurt or during the same week, depending on the seriousness of the injury. Insurance co-pays for urgent care visits are much lower than ED visits, making urgent care visits more affordable.
Conditions commonly treated at the Orthopedic Urgent Care Clinic include:
- Limb pain
- Unexplained limp
