DMOS Urgent Injury Clinics – West Des Moines & Ankeny

When you have a cold, fever or other illness, you call on your regular family urgent care clinic. But when it comes to specialized orthopedic care, DMOS’ Urgent Injury Clinics provide you and your family walk-in access for unexpected orthopedic injuries, such as a sports injury, fracture or sprain.
Avoid a trip to the ER

In many cases, an orthopaedic urgent injury clinic can help you avoid the ER – where wait times can often be several hours before seeing a doctor. Plus, urgent care is much more affordable, and most people find that their insurance co-payments are less.

Our clinic is available for adult and pediatric injuries (3+ years of age) with:
  • Acute injuries
  • Strains, sprains and minor dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Painful, swollen or injured joints
  • Lacerations, including stitches
  • Sudden onset of back, buttock or leg pain
  • Sudden onset of neck and arm pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Work-related injuries (preauthorization required)
When should I go to the Emergency Room?

More serious injuries such as open fractures or head or neck trauma from a motor vehicle accident or a fall from greater than 5 feet should go to a hospital emergency room. The Orthopaedic Urgent Injury Clinic at DMOS is not for chronic orthopedic problems, second opinions or pain medication refills.

  • Head or neck trauma resulting from a motor vehicle accident
  • When the bone is visible or there is an open wound over the fracture (compound fracture)
  • When you are in a motor vehicle accident
  • When there are cuts and/or deep lacerations
  • When the area is burned
  • When you have chest pain

You can count on DMOS Orthopaedic Centers’ joint and bone specialists to provide expert care that will help you get back to living – faster.
