WARREN, Ohio – Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates opened an orthopaedic-focused urgent care center Oct. 5 in Warren.
The center is inside YOA’s office at 1695 Niles-Cortland Road NE. It provides specialized care for people with orthopaedic injuries in need of immediate attention. This includes sports and workers’ comp injuries; dislocations, fractures, strains, sprains and any muscle, bone or joint injuries.
The orthopaedic-focused urgent care center is the first of its kind to open in Trumbull County. YOA now offers urgent care access in both Mahoning and Trumbull counties.
“We’re filling this gap in Trumbull County by providing low-cost, high-quality specialized orthopaedic care for injuries that need immediate attention,” says Dr. Thomas A. Joseph, an orthopaedic surgeon and YOA partner. “We provide a safe, quick and effective alternative to the usual lengthy emergency room visit.
“Oftentimes, when individuals go to the hospital for bone-related injuries, they’re referred to an orthopaedic specialist, anyway,” Joseph continued. “With our orthopaedic urgent care center, we’re eliminating that extra step by providing quicker access to orthopaedic doctors, saving patients time and money.”
The center is open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The YOA orthopaedic team consists of 11 orthopaedic surgeons, one pain management and rehabilitation doctor, orthopaedic physician assistants and nurse practitioners. The group opened its Boardman orthopaedic urgent care center in 2017.
Youngstown Orthopaedic Associates is one of the largest orthopaedic practices in the tri-state area.
Services include orthopaedic care, sports medicine, joint replacement, physical therapy, hand therapy, casting, bracing, X-Ray and MRI imaging services and EMG and nerve studies.
