Fracture clinic

Fracture clinic

For injuries that cannot wait

The fracture clinic provides a reliable solution for busy families. The Philadelphia Shriners Hospital is designed with convenience in mind for families and children. The hospital offers a full range of inpatient and outpatient services under one roof, so a child can receive care for all of their orthopaedic needs in one building.

Children are not just small adults – their bones heal faster than adult bones. This means a child with an injury should see an experienced pediatric orthopaedic specialist as quickly as possible. Children will receive total fracture care, which may include reduction, surgery, casting, post fracture follow-up and physical or occupational therapy.

Our streamlined process makes it easier for families to visit the urgent fracture clinic. No prearranged appointment is required. This service is offered Monday–Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., excluding holidays.

Fracture referral guidelines:

  • Children and adolescents up to age 18
  • Patients with open fractures or life- or limb-threatening conditions should go to an emergency room

Please do not hesitate to contact our staff for any orthopaedic issue(s) or questions: 215-430-4073.

Shriners Hospitals for Children is now part of most major insurance networks. We care for any child regardless of the families’ ability to pay.
