RocDoc can offer a private Orthopaedic Clinic (also known as a fracture clinic). This is a regularly held private clinic held by an Orthopaedic Consultant at RocDoc, Ashbourne.
After a patient has had an x-ray then if required a suitable back slab cast will be applied to the area to support it. This may be a plaster cast or some form of splint or boot and if required crutches will be provided along with the appropriate training. The patient will also be required to be reviewed in a Fracture clinic. After the cast / splint / boot has been applied then at check out an appointment will be offered for our clinic within the recommended timescales. This is normally within 2 weeks of the injury but may be sooner, especially for children.
This is an appointment only service and deals with fractures, suspected fractures or other bone injuries. If a follow up is required then this is by appointment only. Please note that the Orthopaedic Consultant is not available at all times. There is a separate charge for any Fracture Clinic appointments. If additional x-rays are required after the patient has been seen in the clinic then additional charges will apply (this is at a x-ray review rate).
If a patient wishes to avail of the public fracture clinic then an appropriate referral can of course be made by the Doctor requesting the x-ray.
