Where’s the doc when you need one?

Okay, so maybe that’s not as common a saying as it is with police; but anyone who has experienced an acute non-emergency orthopedic injury knows being able to see a competent orthopedist is critical. Whether it’s a sports, work, or hobby-related injury, being able to get immediate expert treatment is the only thing you’re thinking about. You may think that you need to wait 3-4 days to see an orthopedist – but good news – that is no longer true!  A new option is available.

OrthoAccess for Immediate Orthopedic Care

When you break a bone, you normally go immediately to the emergency room, where you’ll spend several hours just to have x-rays taken, a cast put on, then referred to an orthopaedic specialist. Why put the extra effort, and money, into this process when you can go directly to the orthopaedist. When you have a non-emergency problem like spraining your ankle, straining a muscle, or just getting bruised during the course of your normal day, why wait a few days to see a physician? OrthoAccess is designed to provide assessment, treatment and follow-up care for most orthopedic injuries. These injuries include breaks, sprains, strains, bumps, bruises, sports injuries, and minor car accidents…just to name a few.

Melody Winter-Jabeck, Administrator of IBJI Glenview-Wilmette division, explains this ground breaking clinic like this:

“IBJI OrthoAcess will allow residents to receive immediate care for orthopedic injuries  that don’t necessarily warrant a lengthy and costly visit to the ER. Not only do we provide excellent immediate care, our clinic will be staffed by IBJI’s world-class orthopaedic doctors, not general physicians or medical assistants.”
