Orthopaedic Urgent Care
Accidents don’t keep regular business hours, so if you experience an unexpected bone, joint or muscle injury, you can visit the only urgent care center in Tampa Bay specializing in orthopedics. Our Orthopaedic Urgent Care is open during both regular business hours and extended hours Monday through Saturday at our South Tampa location.
For faster service and lower cost than an emergency room, come to Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Orthopaedic Urgent Care. No appointment is necessary, and all ages are welcome.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Orthopaedic Urgent Care different from a traditional urgent care clinic?
Florida Orthopaedic Institute Urgent Care is an extension of our regular orthopedic clinic. Most Urgent Care facilities and ERs charge higher amounts and insurance companies will charge a larger copay for traditional urgent care and emergency room visits. Since Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Orthopaedic Urgent Care is an extension of our regular clinic, the charges are same as a regular office visit in our clinic and patients pay their regular office visit copay.
Do I need to make an appointment to be seen at Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Orthopaedic Urgent Care?
Appointments are not necessary – just walk in during the Orthopaedic Urgent Care hours.
