Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Orthopedic Injury Clinic


New Hours: As of 1/2/20, the Orthopedic Injury Clinic will be open Monday-Thursday from noon-7pm, Friday from noon-6pm, and Saturday (Chesterfield only) from 8am-noon.

When you or a family member experiences a bone or muscle issue, such as a sprain, strain or fracture, avoid the emergency room and visit the no appointment necessary Orthopedic Injury Clinic. At the Orthopedic Injury Clinic, you will receive immediate care by orthopedic specialists, with convenient on-site x-ray, splinting and casting services. 

To better serve you, we offer two walk-in locations for urgent orthopedic care — in South County at I-55 and Butler Hill Road, and in Chesterfield at South Outer Forty Road and Timberlake Manor.

For patients ages 5 and up, we specialize in treating urgent bone and muscle injuries following sports-related and recreational activities. If you have questions about our Injury Clinic, please call us at (314) 514-1642. For some orthopedic injuries and conditions, we have same-day or next-day appointment availability. If you would like to inquire about these appointments, please call (314) 514-3500.
