Urgent Care / Walk-in Hours
Walk-In Hours Update
Beginning September 7, 2021, The Pediatric Orthopedic Center will begin seeing walk-in patients in the Cedar Knolls office only. Walk-in appointments at our Cedar Knolls office will be available Monday-Thursday 5pm – 8pm and Saturday 10am – 2pm.
Patients looking for a walk-in appointment with one of our physicians can call the office at 973-538-7700 Option 9 and will be pre-screened for potential exposure to virus and viral symptoms before making an appointment. We will be extending our available phone hours to help assist in making these appointments. Additionally, we will extend our normal business hours to limit patient volume in the waiting room while continuing to accommodate your urgent needs.
We ask that only the patient and one guardian attend the visit to minimize potential exposure. As per our Governor’s executive order, all patients are required to wear a mask or cloth face covering while visiting any of our offices.
*Walk-in fees may apply. Urgent and Acute Injuries ONLY during walk-in hours.
Know Before You Go
Welcome to The Pediatric Orthopedic Center Urgent Care / Walk-in Hours.*
Did your gymnast just twist an ankle falling off the balance beam? Was your middle schooler injured in gym class and now complaining of wrist pain? Is your toddler unable to walk after he slid down a slide? Orthopedic injuries can occur for a number of reasons. If your child is in pain following an injury then you need to come to The Pediatric Orthopedic Center Urgent Care.
The practice that you have trusted for the orthopedic care of your children for the past 25 years now offers walk-in visits for you urgent injuries. Appointments are not required. We were one of the first orthopedic practices in the state of NJ to open a walk-in, after-hours center for urgent injuries. In addition, we are still the ONLY orthopedic urgent care center in the state to provide a fully staffed pediatric orthopedic team of specialists. While there are other orthopedic practices that offer urgent care as well, NONE provide pediatric focused specialized care for babies, toddlers, adolescents and teenagers!
You can avoid the hassle of emergency room waits and charges only to then be referred to an orthopedist. Instead visit The Pediatric Orthopedic Center Urgent Care, allowing you to save money and still get the high quality care you deserve.
You will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis in a timely manner. A pediatric fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon will personally evaluate you, so you can feel comfortable that you are getting an accurate exam and diagnosis. And by skipping the emergency room or general urgent care, you will be starting your treatment as well as your recovery earlier.
We will be able to offer you and your injured child a convenient one-stop visit with X-rays and real-time accurate readings; appropriate musculoskeletal treatment; bracing, splinting and casting; and prescriptions for MRIs or PT. In addition, besides providing outstanding pediatric orthopedic care, we provide appropriate referrals, follow-up care, and surgical management for more complex injuries and pathology, if necessary.
We commonly will see patients for orthopedic injuries including:
- Broken/fractured bones
- Ligament sprains and muscle/tendon strains
- Specific joint pain
For true life- and limb-threatening injuries and emergencies (e.g. open fractures, significant deformities, obvious dislocations), please go to your local emergency room.
