The Only Urgent Care in Arizona Specializing in Hand Injury
In most cases, sudden injuries to the fingers, hands, and wrist are seen by urgent care facilities and hospital emergency rooms. Unfortunately, many conditions can be unnecessarily complicated by treatment from under-experienced providers, or subject to excessive delays while critical time passes by. Fortunately, The Fitzmaurice Hand Institute in Phoenix, Arizona can handle many urgent hand cases right in our office -usually in less than 24 hours. Our expert hand surgeon Dr. Michael Fitzmaurice, can examine, stabilize, and provide leading-edge treatment without the unnecessary delay of a hospital or urgent care facility.
We treat a variety of fractures and other injuries of the hand wrist and forearm. Patients are immediately evaluated by a leading hand surgeon, rather than a physician assistant or nurse practitioner. When indicated, additional imaging studies are performed on-site, such as x-ray or ultrasound. This is much more efficient than going to the emergency room or an urgent care center where patients will likely experience long wait times -and still have to follow-up with a specialist afterwards. By coming directly to The Fitzmaurice Hand Institute initially, patients will save time, money, and get appropriate treatment much faster than these alternative treatment options.
