Orthopaedic Urgent Care
Fast Treatment for Sprains, Strains, Fractures and Tears
Sprains, strains, broken bones, ligament and cartilage tears require fast medical attention. We offer orthopaedic urgent care at two convenient locations to children and adults every day of the week including evenings and weekends. Walk-ins are welcome.
Fast care for All Orthopaedic and Sports Injuries
It's an unfortunate fact that sports injuries are part of the game, regardless of what game you or your child plays. ACL tears, ankle sprains, shoulder dislocations and broken bones occur without warning. Regardless of whether you are injured playing a sport, out for a walk, or are experiencing a flare-up, urgent orthopaedic attention will identify the right treatment for your painful orthopaedic injury and prevent a more serious injury in the future.
Duke Orthopaedics offers urgent care for sports injuries and other orthopaedic injuries at two convenient Durham locations:
- Duke Sports Injury and Orthopaedic Urgent Care at Page Road (convenient to Cary and Morrisville residents)
- Duke Sports Injury and Orthopaedic Urgent Care at Duke Sports Sciences Institute
Orthopaedic urgent care can be a better, more cost-effective option than emergency room care (unless your injury is life-threatening or severe) because you avoid long waits and potential exposure to sick people.
Our providers treat children and adults with sports and/or orthopaedic injuries including:
- Foot pain and injuries, including heel pain and ligament injuries
- Ankle pain and injuries, including ankle sprains, ankle fractures and torn ankle ligaments
- Hip pain and injuries, including hip bursitis and IT band pain
- Shoulder pain and injuries, including shoulder dislocation and rotator cuff injuries
- Elbow pain and injuries including golf and tennis elbow
