An orthopedic surgeon is available once a week for consultation. Orthopedic care is available Monday thru Friday and includes splinting, casting and home musculoskeletal rehabilitation instruction. Orthopedic cases beyond our scope of practice will be referred to a local hospital and or medical center (SHS is not responsible for fees or costs incurred outside our clinic).
There is a $15 per visit fee for these services.
If you do not have healthcare insurance or cannot afford specialized imaging, medical social workers are available in the Health Promotion Department to help you find resources in the community that can help you pay for the costs of specialized health care. Call 619-594-4133 to make an appointment; walk-in appointments available as staff permits.
