The Importance of Orthopedic Urgent Care
According to data from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, there are over 140 million emergency room visits in the United States each year. Out of all of those ER visits, consistently less than ten percent are admitted to the hospital. The overwhelming majority of emergency visits result in patients being released to go home without ever needing a hospital stay. A good chunk of ER visits happen because of sports injuries, or injuries to the bones and muscles. The fact of the matter is injuries, like sprains and fractures, would be better treated in an orthopedic urgent care setting.
Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is happy to provide an outpatient urgent care clinic for residents of Fayetteville, North Carolina and the surrounding areas. Our orthopedic professionals treat acute musculoskeletal injuries without the hassle of an emergency room visit. If you or a loved one has sustained an orthopedic injury at home, on the job, or during a sporting event, before you rush to an emergency room, consider coming to see us at our urgent care clinic.
We see walk-in patients for urgent care issues every Monday through Thursday evening from 4:30PM until 7:00PM, Fridays from 12:30PM until 5:00PM and every Saturday from 10:00AM until 1:00PM. These are the times reserved for walk-ins without an appointment. The Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine urgent care clinic also sees urgent care patients with an appointment on Mondays through Fridays from 8:00AM until 4:00PM.
