FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: John Turner, Vice President, Public Relations
Cayuga Orthopedics Immediate Care offers onsite walk-in appointments that may include diagnosis and treatment of upper and lower extremity issues, injuries, fractures, arthritis, tendonitis and bursitis along with casting and full onsite ortho equipment (braces, boots, splints, orthotics, crutches, etc.)
Cayuga Orthopedics Immediate Care is open Monday – Friday, 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm and offers convenient free parking. No appointment is needed but one can be made by phone if preferred.
The Clinic is staffed by Dr. Blake Marson, Board Certified, University Professor, Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience, and a complete ortho support team. Patients will also receive enhanced access to Cayuga 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.”
“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,” states Dr. Martin Stallone, President and CEO of Cayuga Health. “Our new Orthopedic Immediate Care practice provides prompt, expert orthopedic care in a safe and convenient environment within the community.”
