The Fracture Clinic is an outpatient clinic that supports the treatment and management of acute orthopaedic injuries. The majority of our patients are referred from the Emergency Department or other units as part of standard follow-up care following an injury.
While at the Fracture Clinic you will be seen by our team of skilled orthopaedic surgeons and technologists who will monitor your progress and recovery. If required, you will have images (x-rays) taken on either the day of your appointment or a few days before.
As part of your treatment plan, you may require a cast, crutches or splint. This equipment will be provided to you at your clinic visit. Please note that there are fees associated with orthopaedic devices and treatment. A fee schedule is posted in the clinic.
The Fracture Clinic strives to provide quick access and for appointments held on time. However, there are times where you may be required to wait longer than expected. We ask that you plan your day accordingly, and appreciate your patience during unexpected delays. Our goal is to ensure you see the surgeon and team quickly and on-time so you can continue with your day.
Fracture Clinic Screening Program
Sunnybrook participates in the Fracture Clinic Screening Program. This program is managed by Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy and the Ontario Orthopaedic Association on behalf of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. Under this program, Osteoporosis Screening Coordinators (OSC) screen for low-trauma fracture patients, and connect these patients with primary health care and community-based services as needed.
The goal is to reduce osteoporosis-related complications, such as fractures, mortality and costs from osteoporosis through an integrated and comprehensive approach aimed at health promotion and disease management.
