Walk-In Orthopedic Care at Mercy

Orthopedic walk-in care is a specialized service of Mercy Orthopedics that provides immediate diagnoses and treatment for musculoskeletal issues, such as bone, joint and muscle injuries.

We understand that, for active people, orthopedic injuries can be both physically and emotionally painful, which is why it's important to seek care for them as soon as possible to prevent complications down the road. At Mercy, you can walk in and get the care you need without scheduling in advance.

Our team of orthopedic specialists can quickly diagnose orthopedic injuries, provide medical attention and get you back to enjoying life to the fullest. 

The main benefit of orthopedic walk-in care is that you can get immediate attention without having to wait to make an appointment. This can significantly impact recovery times when treating injuries that happen suddenly, such as fractures, sprains and other related sports injuries.

 

Injuries can happen any time of the week. That's why our walk-in clinics are often open on evenings during the week and Saturdays. Be sure to check the hours of operation before heading to your nearest Mercy clinic.


Another added benefit of walk-in care is having access to orthopedic specialists without waiting for a referral from your primary care provider. Our board-certified orthopedic and sports medicine specialists have expertise in diagnosing and treating a wide range of orthopedic injuries.


In many cases, patients can expect a quicker recovery if their injury is able to be treated successfully during a walk-in visit. For patients who want to get in, get out and return to their normal activities more quickly, orthopedic walk-in care is an invaluable and convenient care option. 

Orthopedic walk-in care differs from traditional orthopedic services by appointment in several key ways. First, walk-in care focuses on providing rapid evaluation and treatment for immediate orthopedic issues, allowing patients to receive care on the same day they need it. This can also help to minimize overall wait times and allow specialists to see more patients more quickly.

Typically, the types of injuries treated under orthopedic walk-in care are similar to those treated under traditional orthopedic services. However, walk-in care is primarily concerned with managing sudden injuries and immediate symptoms, so specialists may focus on techniques that provide instant relief and stabilization where possible.


The total cost and insurance coverage of walk-in care can vary greatly depending on insurance providers and individual health care plans. It's best to speak with an insurance specialist or representative from your current provider regarding your coverage for things like copays and deductibles.
