DMOS Urgent Injury Clinics – West Des Moines & Ankeny
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
- 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.
