If you’ve ever experienced a long wait in an emergency department when you’ve suffered a sudden sprain or broken bone, you will appreciate the new orthopedic urgent care service that ONS launched on Monday, June 18.

ONS Urgent Ortho Care offers after-hours emergency orthopedic care at the ONS Greenwich office at 6 Greenwich Office Park, between the hours of 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm, Monday through Friday and Saturday from 12 – 4:00 pm.  No appointment is necessary.

“Orthopedic injuries can happen to anyone at any time,” said Seth Miller, MD, president of ONS. “ONS Urgent Ortho Care gives patients a fast, convenient and less costly alternative to a visit to an emergency room.  Patients can walk in and be seen right away by a professional orthopedic team who are trained to deliver state-of-the-art-care for musculoskeletal injuries.”   Studies show that sprains and fractures rank among the top ten reasons for a visit to an emergency department.

“ONS Urgent Ortho Care is a continuation of our mission to provide our surrounding communities with the highest standard of specialized orthopedic and spine care,” Dr. Miller said.  ONS is in network with all major insurances.

ONS currently offers same day appointments during business hours for patients who experience a sudden, acute musculoskeletal injury between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  Patients can request same day appointments by calling 203-869-1145.

With 25 sub-specialty trained physicians in orthopedics, neurosurgery, sports medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation, ONS has been the one of the most comprehensive and advanced practice of its kind in the region for more than 20 years. ONS has offices in Greenwich and Stamford, CT and Harrison, NY which offer a state-of the-art medical facility, onsite physical therapy centers, digital x-ray and MRI.  Note: ONS Urgent Ortho Care is currently available at the Greenwich office only.
