Mid-Michigan Orthopedics will be holding a sports injury clinic, to assess orthopedic-related injuries, on Saturdays beginning October 8. This Saturday morning clinic gives your family next-day access to the most specialized sports medicine and orthopedic care in the state.

Board certified Orthopedic/Sports Medicine physicians will evaluate athletes and may include X-ray evaluation. In addition, nurses or athletic trainers may assist with treatment plan and/or rehabilitation programs — all in one visit.

“We are excited to offer this service to the community,” says Ashraf Elbanna, MD, sports medicine/orthopedic surgeon. “The sports injury clinic offers parents and students the option of being seen on the weekend when you don’t have to take time off of work. This structure also offers treatment at a much more cost-effective rate than an emergency department for those less serious injuries.”

Patients will be seen on a walk-in basis from 8 am until 11 am at Mid-Michigan Orthopedics located at 113 East Williams Street, Owosso. Parental consent is required before treatment and fees are applied with insurance being billed.
