Make The Right Choice
The Fitzmaurice Hand Institute is now offering emergency hand care services to its patients.
This same-day service eliminates the need for the emergency room and long hours spent waiting for care. Emergency hand care at The Fitzmaurice Hand Institute includes treatment for the following injuries:
- Lacerations or cuts
- Tendon damage
- Sudden numbness
- Ligament damage
We treat a variety of fractures and other injuries of the hand wrist and forearm. Patients are immediately evaluated by a leading hand surgeon, rather than a physician assistant or nurse practitioner. When indicated, additional imaging studies are performed on-site, such as x-ray or ultrasound. This is much more efficient than going to the emergency room or an urgent care center where patients will likely experience long wait times -and still have to follow-up with a specialist afterwards. By coming directly to The Fitzmaurice Hand Institute initially, patients will save time, money, and get appropriate treatment much faster than these alternative treatment options. By taking the emergency room out of the equation, the patient experience improves in the following ways:
Our experts can provide same-day appointments and specialized care that can’t be offered in emergency rooms and urgent clinics.
