Michigan Medicine is committed to providing comprehensive care to patients in a safe environment.
In order to reduce exposure to patients during the global coronavirus epidemic, we have established a provisional clinic for adult patients with bone and joint acute injuries at our Brighton Center for Specialty Care.
Staffed by our world-class musculoskeletal experts, adult patients can receive advanced musculoskeletal care in our state-of-the-art specialty care center without visiting an emergency department during this time of increased exposure.
Adult patients with a range of acute injuries can be seen at the Bone & Joint Acute Injury Clinic:
- Acute injuries of the foot, ankle, hand, wrist, knee, shoulder, and elbow
- Closed, simple fractures of the arm, elbow, hand, wrist, leg, foot or ankle
- Ligament, muscle and tendon sprains and strains
- Acute, severe back and neck pain
The clinic is fully staffed by orthopedic surgeons and physicians, dedicated musculoskeletal nursing and physician assistant staff, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, anesthesiologists and radiology specialists, with access to our onsite outpatient surgery center and comprehensive musculoskeletal imaging capabilities. Procedures requiring sedation and fluoroscopy are also available on site.
Patients that cannot be treated at the Bone & Joint Acute Injury Clinic include:
- Pediatric patients (0-18yrs)
- Patients with open fractures, traumatic injuries (high energy and/or with soft tissue damage)
- Active bleeding
- Neck or spine fractures, or patients with associated acute medical conditions
Patients whose conditions match these descriptions should be seen at a comprehensive emergency department or trauma center.
Your primary care provider can help you determine whether an emergency department is necessary.
In a medical emergency, call 911 or go directly to an emergency department.
Patients do not need to call ahead and no appointment is necessary.
Monday through Friday: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
