BJH, WUSM | Injuries such as sprains, strains and minor fractures happen — and usually at the most inconvenient time.
Although many people use an urgent care or emergency room, there’s another option for acute bone and muscle injuries — the Barnes-Jewish and Washington University Orthopedic Injury Clinic, with locations in south St. Louis County and Chesterfield.
Whether your child is injured playing sports or you slipped on ice — the Orthopedic Injury Clinic sees patients age 5 and older. The no-appointment, walk-in clinic is staffed by Washington University orthopedic specialists and has on-site imaging, splinting and casting.
Patients who visit the injury clinics can pay a specialty co-pay for services, rather than the fees charged for an urgent care or emergency room visit.
Both the South County and Chesterfield clinics are open noon-8 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and noon-6 p.m., Friday. The Chesterfield location is also open 8 a.m.-noon, Saturday. Parking is free.
