At Premier Care Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we know that injuries can happen anywhere and at anytime. And pain can strike at any moment.
As a division of Signature Medical Group, we've been happy to offer our Orthopedics Now! service for more than a year at our main south St. Louis County location. We've extended our hours to 8:30 p.m. on weeknights and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. No appointment is necessary.
At our Orthopedics Now! clinic, we treat:
- Minor to severe bone and joint pain
- Closed fractures (no openings in the skin)
- Minor joint dislocations
- Post-operation issues (removing stitches and checking wounds)
- Muscle sprains or pain
- Minor to moderate sports injuries
- Ligament tears
We also offer cortisone injections, X-rays and splinting. And we can prescribe anti-inflammatory medicines and some muscle relaxers.
But there are some injuries and conditions we don't treat. For example, we won't prescribe or refill narcotics or pain killers. And we recommend that patients visit a hospital emergency room for:
- Severe fractures with exposed bone (open fractures)
- Injuries with excessive bleeding
- Severe joint dislocations
- Stitches or open wounds
- Dog or cat bites
Our clinic is at 12639 Old Tesson Road, Suite 115, St. Louis, Mo., 63128. The phone number is 314-849-0311.
Orthopedics Now! is also offered at other Signature Medical Group practices. In west St. Louis County, try Mid County Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine. In the Kansas City area, visit Apex Orthopedics and Sports Medicine or Kansas City Bone and Joint Clinic.
