Samuels Orthopaedic Immediate Care Center

The Samuels Orthopaedic Immediate Care Center, New York City’s only walk-in orthopaedic clinic, has been treating over 7,000 patients with urgent orthopaedic problems a year since 1993 when a generous grant from the Samuels Foundation helped establish the Center.

Staffed by members of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, the Center, or "I-Care" as it is known, uses state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to evaluate and treat any and all urgent orthopaedic problems, including:

  • hand and foot injuries
  • suspected hip, arm or leg fractures
  • suspected dislocation or joint injury
  • sprains
  • suspected bone or joint infection

About 70% of I-Care patients are treated and released in 2 hours or less. Patients are evaluated by a nurse and a physician. If a patient's condition is stable and outside the scope of practice of the Immediate Care Center, they are referred to the NYU Langone Urgent Care Center for further evaluation and treatment.
