Emergency Care Q & A

What is emergency orthopaedic care?

Injuries are never convenient and sometimes occur outside of regular business hours. When this happens, Dr. Koenig and his compassionate team are happy to see you for emergency care. They treat their patients like family and always welcome urgent visits for traumatic injuries that need prompt attention. 

Unlike a crowded hospital emergency room, Dr. Koenig’s kid-friendly staff provides highly individualized care with a special focus on the unique orthopaedic needs of children. They can always schedule a visit at any time, any day.

What injuries require emergency care?

Injuries can occur at any time, like during a sports competition or an unfortunate accident. Dr. Koenig and his team provide after-hour orthopaedic care for a wide range of traumatic injuries, including:

Broken bones 

Broken bones, or fractures, can happen to anyone. Active children are especially prone to developing fractures. If a child is still growing, the fracture may damage the growth plate. Dr. Koenig specializes in treating broken bones and growth plate injuries in children and teens. 

Joint dislocations

Joint dislocations happen when some force knocks a joint out of its normal position. As the body’s most flexible joint, the shoulder is particularly vulnerable to dislocations. Knee dislocations are also frequent. 


A sprain happens when a ligament stretches and tears. Severe sprains may involve a completely ruptured ligament and cause symptoms that mimic those of a broken bone. 

What are the benefits of emergency orthopaedic care?

Dr. Koenig and his team believe that your child deserves prompt and highly specialized orthopaedic care. That’s why they happily attend to traumatic injuries whenever they occur. 

Timely treatment means that your child can recover faster and return to their normal activities sooner. Seeing a highly-trained orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in pediatrics means your child gets the precise care they need.

Dr. Koenig and his team are equipped to handle a wide range of traumatic injuries right in their kid-friendly office. They offer on-site digital X-rays and in-office reductions, casting, and bracing for broken bones.
