Fracture clinic

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.

What to expect upon arrival

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.
