This week, Cayuga Health opened an Orthopedics Immediate Care center at 1122 Commons Ave in Cortland.
“Some orthopedic injuries can’t wait, but there are people who may be delaying care due to concerns about visiting emergency rooms during this pandemic,” said Cayuga Health President/CEO Dr. Martin Stallone. “Our new Orthopedic Immediate Care practice provides prompt, expert orthopedic care in a safe and convenient environment within the community.”
Open Monday – Friday from 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm, the clinic offers free parking and walk-in appointments for diagnoses and treatments, including: Upper and lower extremity issues; injuries; fractures; arthritis; tendonitis and bursitis; casting and full onsite orthopedics equipment (braces, boots, splints, orthotics, crutches, etc.)
No appointment is needed but one can be made by phone if preferred.
The clinic is staffed by Dr. Blake Marson, a Board Certified, University Professor, Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience, along with a complete orthopedic support team.
Patients also get enhanced access to subspecialty surgeons.
“Typically, patients want to be seen by an orthopedic specialist right away,” stated Dr. Marson. “The idea of our Immediate Care center is for any patient, covering a variety of orthopedic problems, to be able to get the care that they need at the very highest level.”
Dr. Marson called in to discuss the new clinic further with WXHC.
