What injuries do you treat?

We treat any immediate injury to your muscles, ligaments, joints or bones, including injuries to the shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, hips, pelvis, legs, knees, ankles and feet. As noted here on our website, we treat:

  • bleeding injuries like cuts and wounds.
  • damage to the bones and joints, such as breaks, fractures and dislocations.
  • muscle and tendon injuries like strains, sprains, crushes and tears.
  • problems caused over time like arthritis, tendonitis and bursitis.

When Should I see Go To Ortho versus an emergency room?

If this is a life-threatening emergency, or if you or the injured person is experiencing heart attack or stroke symptoms, loss of consciousness, seizure or uncontrollable bleeding, please call 911.

If your injury is not life threatening and you do not want to wait a prolonged amount of time, come to Go To Ortho. Typical injury symptoms are sharp pain, swelling, bruising and tenderness, particularly as a result of a fall, collision or repetitive strain. Go To Ortho also treats cuts, wounds and joint pain.


Why Go To Ortho

At Go To Ortho, all of our surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS). ABOS Certification demonstrates an Orthopaedic Surgeon's attainment to high standards for education, knowledge, experience, and skills. Collectively, we have over 50 years of experience dealing with trauma injuries in the Portland area, and our surgeons have privileges at all the major hospitals in Portland, including some surgery centers.

By going directly to Go To Ortho’s orthopedic specialists, patients can avoid extra appointments, as well as the typically higher costs of emergency room visits for non-life threatening injuries. An average visit at Go To Ortho may last approximately 30 minutes, including waiting time and X-ray, if needed. In comparison, the tracking website ER Wait Watcher reports a wait time of 40 to 45 minutes on average at a Portland-area hospital for someone with a broken bone just to receive pain medication, waiting for treatment or to see a specialist takes much longer.

During an appointment at Go To Ortho, our team of specialists will provide you with an immediate diagnosis of the injury, corrective treatment, and medication, if needed. We’ll also discuss your long-term options for recovery. In other clinics, you may get immediate attention, however, you would then be referred to a specialist for examination at a later date, prolonging wait times and increasing costs in physician visits. Not to mention, Go To Ortho’s physicians typically are the specialists that you would eventually be referred to for your injury anyway. Go To Ortho, therefore, is the go-to place to see qualified specialists from the start for better outcomes and less hassle--getting the care you need when you need it.  It is a more cost-effective way for integrated, streamlined care.

Other added benefits for our patients include

  • We provide stitches, x-ray and cast-splint-brace services on-site.
  • We provide full-service trauma care.
  • We accept walk-in appointments.  No appointment is necessary.
  • We accept most major insurance providers.
  • We can treat patients both in-network and out-of-network.

Let Go To Ortho be your go-to place for quick-care orthopedic injury treatment.
