Orthopedic Trauma Care
Pain on Sunday,
Call Us Monday.
Because injuries that cause pain and swelling often occur over the weekend when people are more active, the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Orthopedic Department offers its hard-playing patients special Monday appointments. Simply call (650) 934-7111 by noon on Monday for your same-day appointment.
It is located at:
Mountain View Center
701 E. El Camino Real
Mountain View, CA 94040
Phone: (650) 934-7000
The Monday Acute Care Clinic is for patients between the ages of 15 and 55 who are experiencing pain and swelling due to injuries. Conditions treated include soft tissue injuries, ligament tears and knee and shoulder pain.
The Acute Care Clinic is not for emergencies. If your injury requires stitches, is very painful or may involve a broken bone, do not wait until Monday for treatment. Broken bones and dislocated joints often require a trip to your local emergency room or a visit one of our urgent care centers for injuries that need prompt attention. Please call 911 or go to your closest emergency room for dangerous injuries that require immediate treatment.
If your injury can wait, or you’ve been seen and discharged from the emergency room or urgent care, our orthopedic trauma experts are waiting to provide you prompt evaluation and skilled treatment. You may need a cast, physical therapy, or surgery to get you back to the activities you love. Our team is ready to help you on your path to recovery.
