***Coronavirus Update: UNC is dedicated to continuing to serve your urgent orthopaedic needs, but for the protection of our vulnerable patients and staff you may be asked to wait in your car before coming to our walk-in clinic. We will still be delivering same-day care, but ask that you call first to be screened for potential coronavirus exposure and to make an appointment. 

All patients must wear a surgical mask while being seen in urgent care. If you don’t have a mask when you arrive we will supply.

Same Day Access to Orthopaedic Care

Not only can you be seen immediately, you can be seen by the same team that takes care of the Tar Heels and is on the leading edge of innovation and musculoskeletal care. We now offer walk-in care and same day appointments that can be booked online at a time of your convenience.

Walk-In Care: (please call ahead)

OrthoNow offers walk-in orthopaedic visits for acute sprains and strains, joint pain, sports injuries and possible fractures.  No need to wait to get seen, you can be seen the same day, just come to one of our two convenient locations in Chapel Hill and Cary to visit one of our highly trained orthopedic specialists.
