Treatment for severe injuries
Our Orthopedic trauma fellowship-trained surgeons specialize in treating acute fractures. It’s our entire focus. From motor vehicle accidents to slip and falls, we can get you moving again.
If you have been diagnosed with a fracture, we can get you on the road to recovery quickly. The Spectrum Health Orthopedic Fracture Clinic has orthopedic trauma fellowship-trained surgeons who specialize in fractures. We fix the most complex and difficult fractures that require surgery to the more routine, non-operative fractures requiring splints and casts.
The clinic offers on-site digital X-ray and easy access to advanced CT and MRI imaging and includes walk-in hours from 7:30-8:30am Monday-Friday.
After patients check-in at our kiosks, they will be brought into the clinical space where a registered nurse or medical assistant will take vital signs. If X-rays are needed, they are done in our suite. One of physician assistants will then complete an examination, and if X-rays were taken, review the images with you. If a cast is required, one of our cast technicians will apply it. When a brace or splint is required, one of our registered nurses or medical assistants will apply the brace and schedule a follow up appointment.
Spectrum Health Orthopedic trauma fellowship-trained surgeons operate at the highest level of acuity in the area. We are able to treat the most complex, life-threatening orthopedic injuries and severe bone, joint and muscle injuries at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital.
