HSS now provides access to immediate care for acute injuries and severe pain. These are the types of problems that could otherwise require a visit to a hospital. Care is provided by expert HSS doctors.

Call now to speak to one of our specialists

Call us if you are experiencing:

  • Acute injuries including:
    • Bone, tendon, muscle or joint injury that has occurred within the prior few days
    • Possible tendon ruptures, such as the Achilles tendon or quadriceps tendon
    • Possible broken bones including the wrist, foot, ankle or other bones
      (however, if the bone has broken through the skin, you should go directly to an emergency room)
    • Acute, recent injury or recent severe pain of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, knee, ankle or foot
    • Acute, severe pain in the neck or back that is causing you to have trouble moving
  • Recent onset of severe muscle or bone pain that you have not felt before
  • Recent onset of swollen joints

Your injury or pain may require an x-ray, MRI scan or another imaging test to confirm the diagnosis. All HSS Urgent Ortho Care centers have imaging on site.

An HSS doctor will conduct a phone screening to determine the best approach to treating your pain or injury. If the right option for you is in-person treatment, we will immediately schedule your appointment at an HSS Urgent Ortho Care location. We currently offer this service in New York City, Long Island (Uniondale), New Jersey (Paramus), Connecticut (Stamford), and Florida (West Palm Beach and Wellington).

If your pain or injury can be better treated through HSS Virtual Care or another option, we will connect you with the HSS specialist who can best meet your needs.
