There you are cheering on your daughter and her team when it happens. BAM! The fall to the floor. The coaches and referees help her off the court... you start to feel anxious, worried and frustrated that you will need to spend the next several hours waiting in the emergency room.
But you don’t have to be frustrated.
Fast, reliable and professional care is available to pediatric patients, age one and up, teens, adults and seniors at GO Ortho in Beachwood without the emergency room hassle.
Reuben Gobezie, MD, founder/director of the practice says, “Many people don’t know they can come direct to an orthopedic specialist when they have an injury or pain. Instead of the generalist physician you would see at the ER, our staff will diagnose and treat your injury in less time and more affordably.”
When you arrive at GO Ortho, you will be checked in and brought to an exam room. An orthopedic specialist will evaluate your injury, and provide any necessary diagnostics or treatments, including pediatric orthopedics, fracture care, surgery, injections, ultrasounds, x-rays, MRI/CT scans, casting, bracing and splinting.
The GO Ortho team of orthopedic doctors and physicians assistants has the expertise to ensure your injury is quickly diagnosed and treated to get you back on your feet – and in the game.
The most common injuries treated for teens participating in sports are ankle sprains, hand/wrist fractures, and concussions. Overuse injuries are also common in teens who focus heavily on one sport for a long period of time.
“Our goal is to change the delivery of medical care. We help families avoid the hospital or emergency room to receive the immediate care they need, directly from a specialist,” added Dr. Gobezie.
For instance, if you or a family member has a minor ankle sprain, Dr. Gobezie recommends to ice and elevate the injury, add a compression wrap and take ibuprofen for the pain. Then call GO Ortho to be seen by a specialist.
