What is the Orthopedic Urgent Care Clinic?
The Orthopedic Urgent Care Clinic within the Boston Children’s Hospital Orthopedic Center is a daily clinic dedicated to seeing children and adolescents with injuries and musculoskeletal (bone, muscle, and soft tissue) problems not serious enough for the Emergency Department yet requiring prompt evaluation and care.
One of the biggest advantages of coming to our Orthopedic Urgent Care Clinic is convenience. With a physician referral, patients can be treated by world-class pediatric orthopedic specialists in Boston, Peabody, Waltham, or Weymouth. The other advantage is cost. Insurance co-pays for urgent-care visits are more affordable than emergency room fees.
Although not a walk-in clinic, the clinic offers many of the benefits of one along with specialized care. Patients are often seen on the day they get hurt or during the same week, depending on the seriousness of the injury.
