Our West Chester facility is available for emergency orthopaedic injuries (sprains, broken bones, lacerations, work injuries, etc.) on a "walk-in" basis. Orthopaedic Prompt Care is staffed by OSMC physicians ensuring excellence in your care.
Patients should consider Orthopaedic Prompt Care for any acute orthopaedic injury for which they would go to an urgent care, emergency department, or orthopaedic office. Also, a patient who is in need of physical therapy should consider taking advantage of the services available at this location.
Being sidelined with an injury is the largest threat to athletes today. The goal of Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Consultants, Inc., is to help athletes to get back into the action as soon as safely possible. We work with athletes on healing and recovering from an injury adequately...understanding that an inadequate healing and recovery time can put an athlete at risk for re-injury keeping them out of the game for an extended period of time.
We encourage an accelerated return to the action by providing early diagnosis, treatment, and full functional rehabilitation for the athletes we treat. We provide a full range of sports medicine treatment including:
• Advanced Arthroscopic Surgery--A small incision is made to insert an arthroscope. Other incisions may be made to view other areas of the joint or for insertion of other instruments. As opposed to open surgery, arthroscopic surgery affords patients an easier recovery; however, it does require the use of anesthetics and the special equipment available in a hospital operating room or outpatient surgical suite.
• Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair--A specialized technique by which visualization and repair of the rotator cuff is performed utilizing mutiple small incisions and arthroscopic technology.
• ACL Reconstruction--When the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is torn, it unravels like a braided rope and does not heal naturally. ACL reconstructive surgery provides many patients with recovery of full function after an ACL tear.
• Team Physicians--As our orthopaedic surgeons and orthopaedists are very action-oriented individuals and have a keen interest in athletics, they are naturals for serving as team physicians at the high school, college and professional levels.
