Orthopedic Urgent Care in Wake County

ANNOUNCEMENT:

If you experience sprains, strains, fractures, or other urgent orthopaedic injuries during the COVID-19 outbreak, we encourage you to use our urgent care locations for timely care rather than your local ER. This will ensure that the healthcare system can continue to focus on treating those affected by COVID-19, while our specialists take care of any orthopedic issues you may be facing.

Medical Staff at Raleigh Orthopaedic Urgent Care:

At Raleigh Orthopaedic Urgent Care, a physician assistant or nurse practitioner will examine you, order X-rays if needed, provide a diagnosis, and treat your specific injury.

IMPORTANT NOTE

If you had X-rays taken at another facility, please bring a physical copy (CD preferred) with you to our urgent care center. Otherwise, we may need to repeat your X-rays.
