5 Advantages of Receiving Orthopedic Care at Our Fast Track Clinic

5 Advantages of Receiving Orthopedic Care at Our Fast Track Clinic

Whether you twist an ankle, sprain a wrist, or fracture a leg, injuries can occur any time, anywhere, and typically not during convenient business hours near a hospital. It may be tempting to put off the hassle of the emergency room and postpone treatment, hoping your injury will heal on its own. But delaying medical care can slow down the healing process, lead to future problems, and prevent you from returning to your regular daily life. 

That’s why we’ve created the Fast Track Clinic, the only orthopedic urgent care facility in the area, so you can get prompt treatment.

Our experienced orthopedic specialists at Nevada Orthopedic & Spine Center in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, provide same-day orthopedic care with several advantages over other healthcare options.

1. Extended hours 

Fast-track clinics often have extended hours. Our Las Vegas, Nevada, clinic is open from 10am-7pm, Monday-Saturday, and provides walk-in and same-day services for non-life-threatening orthopedic emergencies. 

2. More affordable than other walk-in options

Emergency room trips often result in high medical bills, even if your insurance covers a large portion. Compared to the expense of ER visits, our Fast Track Clinic is an affordable alternative for orthopedic emergencies. We accept most insurances; you can check the complete list here to verify if we accept your insurance. 

3. Save time with walk-in care

Instead of going through multiple appointments and referrals, which is typically what happens if you go to an ER for orthopedic emergencies, you can receive the orthopedic care you need immediately by going straight to our Fast Track Clinic. 

4. Specialty care

While walk-in clinics may provide general orthopedic care, our Fast Track Clinic provides specialty care for orthopedic emergencies using state-of-the-art surgical techniques. Our physicians are fellowship-trained and board-certified, each with advanced training in their specialty areas. Whether you have a shoulder, hip, ankle, wrist, elbow, or another injury, our expert team can provide the care you need to get back to your daily routine as quickly as possible. 

5. Services available on-site

Our Fast Track Clinics provides on-site services, including X-rays, splinting, bracing, and casting to treat a range of orthopedic emergencies. We also have the necessary equipment and knowledge to provide ancillary services on-site, including physical therapy, lab testing, and ultrasounds. Getting an injury treated sooner decreases the chances of long-term problems and accelerates your return to a pain-free life.
