It’s 3:15 on a Wednesday. Your son took a tumble on his skateboard, injuring his leg. There is no blood, and the bone doesn’t appear to be broken. Still, it’s swelling and while he’s trying to be tough, you can tell he’s in pain. This doesn’t seem severe enough for a trip to the emergency room, but you’d like to have a specialist take a look at it just the same.

Fortunately, EmergeOrtho offers AccessOrtho, the only dedicated orthopedic urgent care service in the surrounding region.

Designed to make patient care much more accessible and convenient, EmergeOrtho’s AccessOrtho allows patients with orthopedic conditions needing immediate attention to be diagnosed and treated right away, avoiding costly and unnecessary visits to the emergency room.

AccessOrtho will make its Jacksonville debut on July 5

A vital service in our Ashton Drive office in Wilmington and our recently opened new facility in Shallotte, AccessOrtho will make its Jacksonville debut on July 5 at our full-service location on Brabham Avenue.

EmergeOrtho’s AccessOrtho in Wilmington was the first of its kind in the area, and now residents of Onslow County join those in New Hanover and Brunswick counties in enjoying this unparalleled convenience. All three locations offer the same timely access to the highest level of orthopedic care, including on-site x-rays and casting. Patients with non-pressing conditions continue to be scheduled according to their physician’s recommendations.

AccessOrtho allows patients to get immediate, specialized treatment for:

Strains & sprains

Broken bones

– Closed fractures (in which bone does not break the skin)

Sports-related injuries

– Cast or wound dressing problems

– Recently painful, swollen or injured joints

Injuries not appropriate for AccessOrtho include:

– Non-orthopedic care

– Open fractures (in which bone is protruding from skin)

– Head or facial trauma
