Fracture Clinic

The Fracture Clinic is where patients with bone, joint, and soft tissue injuries are referred after being seen in our Emergency Department, or are referred from one of our inpatient care units.

The Fracture Clinic team includes orthopaedic surgeons, residents, and fellows, orthopaedic technologists, advanced practice occupational therapists, and nurses.

In addition to treating injuries, the Fracture Clinic offers osteoporosis screening. We connect patients with low-trauma fractures, with health care and community services to reduce osteoporosis-related complications. This program is managed by the Ontario Osteoporosis Strategy and the Ontario Orthopaedic Associationon behalf of the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.

Your appointment

When you are referred to Fracture Clinic, our staff reviews the referral and connects you with the most appropriate surgeon for you.

Your appointment will be booked for a specific day and time. The clinic is run by the order of scheduled appointments. Unfortunately, arriving early may not result in being seen sooner.

Once your appointment is booked, you will receive an automated phone call reminder. There is no need to respond to this message unless you need to cancel or change the appointment.

What to expect

Many patients need x-rays on the day of their appointment. If you have been asked to get new x-rays for your next Fracture Clinic appointment, please go to x-ray before checking in at Fracture Clinic.

Your treatment may include a cast, crutches, or a splint. All of this will be provided to you at the Fracture Clinic, however, please note that there are fees for devices and casting, that are not covered by the provincial health insurance plan (OHIP).

While patients are responsible for these fees, some devices and services may be reimbursed by extended health insurance plans. Please check with your insurance provider for details.

Timing

Our team works to keep the clinic running smoothly but changes in each patient’s needs can take more time. Your patience is most appreciated and we ask that you plan for two to four hours in total, from arrival at the clinic to the end of your appointment.

What to bring

When you come to all of your appointments at the Fracture Clinic, please make sure you have the following with you:

  • Valid Health Card
  • Sunnybrook Hospital Card if you have one (if you are a patient returning for follow-up, the Fracture Clinic may have issued a card for you)
  • Copies of recent x-rays or other scans requested by your surgeon
