ROXBURY, NJ – It’s a pleasant Sunday morning, you’re playing volleyball in the back yard with the kids and – forgetting you’re not 17 anymore – you jump up to smack that ball.

Instead of feeling the satisfaction of an unanswered spike, you feel the stinging pain of a wounded ankle.

The only good thing about this scenario is that you live in Roxbury. That means you’re minutes away from something pretty rare: Orthopedic doctors at a place – other than a hospital emergency room – that doesn’t require appointments and is open on weekends.

That place is the orthopedic urgent care center operated in Succasunna by The Orthopedic Institute, a TAPinto Roxbury sponsor, which is open seven days a week.

“We set up an orthopedic urgent care center in Roxbury so that nobody has to spend the better part of their morning or afternoon waiting for an emergency room to take their vitals, get their life history and tell them, ‘Here’s the X-ray. Why don’t you call this orthopedist next week at hospital rates’” said Orthopedic Institute Chief Operating Officer Carlos Curras.

The urgent care center, situated in Roxbury Mall, Suite 400 at 66 Sunset Strip in Succasunna, will be celebrating its 1-year anniversary on May 1. Curras said the facility has been warmly received by people in Roxbury and nearby.

“It’s very popular,” he said. “We have doctors working weekday evenings, and Saturdays and Sunday mornings. We have a rotation of doctors always ready to provide for your orthopedic healthcare needs with cost-effective access and quality care.”

The facility has X-ray equipment and qualified experts, including sports medicine physicians, who can tell whether that failed spike resulted in a fracture or just a sprain, Curras said.

“We are seeing dozens of patients on the weekends and we have members of the community come and walk-in after hours all the time,” he said. “We work until 8 p.m. (on weekdays), so it’s not just urgent care but also convenient care.”

The urgent care center is there to help when people suffer from dislocations, concussions, strains and sprains, pain and swelling and other problems impacting the back, neck, spine, knee and leg, hand and wrist, arm and elbow, shoulder, hip, ankle and foot.

It is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to noon on weekends. The number to call is (908) 684-3005.
