Ortho OIC Orthopaedic Immediate Care is the first of its kind in this area; a standalone orthopaedic immediate care facility.
The facility represents an emerging service line for the delivery of healthcare. Ortho OIC Orthopaedic Immediate Care (OIC) was developed to address the growing patient need for urgent and off hour treatment options for orthopaedic conditions.
Traditionally, patients with non-emergent orthopaedic injuries, that occur outside of the standard office hours have been faced with limited treatment options. Often, the patients have no choice but to go through the nearest hospital-based emergency facility. The healthcare industry is forced to bear the significant financial burden of treating these non-emergent patients in the hospital-based emergency facility.
Ortho OIC Orthopaedic Immediate Care is open Monday thru Friday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Saturday from 12-4 p.m. The office offers online scheduling and walk-in appointments are always welcomed. The clinic is staffed by orthopaedic specialists and features onsite digital x-ray and dry lab.
Ortho OIC treats adults and children with acute orthopaedic injuries including sprains and strains, sports injuries, fractures, ligament and tendon injuries, back and neck pain and suturing for simple lacerations. The facility also treats work-related musculoskeletal injuries. In addition to on site x-ray, the clinic provides casting and bracing services. Ortho OIC accepts most types of insurance and features short wait times.
Ortho OIC was developed by Dr. Lonnie Davis. Dr. Davis has been in private practice in Northern Virginia for nearly 15 years, where he specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery. Dr. Davis earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia and completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Indiana University and fellowship training in Arlington, Virginia.
