Orthopedic Care When – and Where – You Need It

After-Hours Care for Injuries

Fall is a busy time for sports and sports injuries. The Sports Medicine and Performance Center at The University of Kansas Health System just made it easier to get your sports and orthopedic injuries checked out in Overland Park, Kansas.

The center will be open for walk-in appointments on Saturdays from 8-11 a.m. at I-435 and Nall Avenue. These appointments will be available from September 1 through November 17.

"We're extending our hours to make exceptional orthopedic care even more convenient for youth and high school athletes and weekend warriors in Johnson County," says Charles Rozanski, vice president of orthopedics and sports medicine.

The clinic also serves busy professionals who can't find time for a weekday appointment. "We're working overtime so our patients don't have to miss a single hour of work," says Rozanski. "During these hours we expect to see common sports and orthopedic injuries including concussions, sprains, strains, joint injuries and bone fractures. Patients with more serious injuries may be referred to an emergency department."

Patients will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis, with neither appointment nor referral needed. A sports medicine physician will evaluate, diagnose and treat the injury. If needed, a follow-up appointment can be scheduled with the appropriate physician or therapist.
