Relief is a walk-in away

Get the right care right away with same-day orthopaedic visits

Relief is a walk-in away

Sudden orthopaedic pain and injuries can be stressful—physically, mentally, financially and logistically. Same-day visits at Wisconsin River Orthopaedics can help make a challenging time a bit simpler. Fast access hours mean you can get the right care where—and when—you need it. If you have a non-life-threatening sport- or work-related injury, fall, accident or sudden pain and suspect you've injured a bone, muscle or joint, getting care from orthopaedic experts can mean you get diagnosed and treated faster—so you can start healing sooner.

5 benefits to same-day care from the experts at Wisconsin River Orthopaedics

  1. Specialized care

When you're injured, the last thing you want is to wait in pain and uncertainty—or make multiple trips for diagnoses and treatments. At Wisconsin River Orthopaedics, you receive care from providers who specialize in orthopaedic injuries—so you access the right care right away. Patients are evaluated and diagnosed by experts who only treat orthopaedic conditions. Plus, in cases where a primary care visit would result in a referral to an orthopedic specialist anyway, same-day appointments eliminate that middle step and simplify the entire process.  

  1. Skip expensive emergency room visits

Hospital emergency rooms are for life-threatening, critical situations that cannot wait. If your orthopaedic injury needs immediate care but isn't life-threatening, save the expense, long wait times and potential exposure to infectious illnesses at an emergency room setting by going to an orthopaedic specialist. Like the hospital emergency departments, Wisconsin River Orthopaedics offers state-of-the-art X-rays, MRIs and advanced treatments. But unlike trips to the ER, the cost savings can be substantial. 

  1. Get in—and get better—sooner

There are many ways to injure the bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles in our hands, feet, knees, shoulders, hips, ankles and back. If you experience sudden pain or have an accident or injury, a same-day appointment with an orthopaedic provider can give you a fast, accurate diagnosis and prompt treatment right away. And the sooner you get the care you need, the farther along you'll be on your journey to healing—and returning to the activities you enjoy.

  1. Save time—skip multiple trips

The expert teams at Wisconsin River Orthopaedics offer immediate treatments for fractures, dislocations, joint and tendon issues, sports injuries and impact- or work-related injuries. Where trips to urgent care or a primary care clinic may result in a referral for services at Wisconsin River Orthopaedics, scheduling a same-day appointment at WRO can save multiple trips to various providers—and multiple bills. Simply call to reserve a space and be seen by a specialist that day!

  1. Full range of onsite services—from evaluation to rehabilitation

Wisconsin River Orthopaedics is a state-of-the-art, full-service orthopedic facility, expertly staffed and equipped for all manner of care. From leading-edge X-rays and MRIs for comprehensive evaluation for accurate diagnoses—to splinting, casting and personalized plans to help you make a full recovery—find everything you need at one convenient location. At WRO, find the support and commitment of skilled teams who take time to know your situation and streamline follow-up care by scheduling appointments and treatments, all usually with much shorter wait times than an emergency or primary care facility.

Schedule same-day appointments for sudden orthopaedic pain or injuries including:

  • Fractures and breaks
  • Joint and tendon pain
  • Knee and hip injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Shoulder, elbow and hand injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Sprains and strains
