WEST WARWICK – University Orthopedics has opened its newest location at 325 Quaker Lane, providing more-convenient access for West Bay communities to treatment for acute sports-related injuries, as well as shoulder, knee, ankle and other musculoskeletal injuries.

The building, dubbed OrthoDIRECT West, is a 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, free-standing building offering same-day and next-day appointments staffed by orthopedic- and sports medicine-trained clinicians.

The building is located off Quaker Lane and Bald Hill Road. The location is equipped with exam pods, X-ray rooms, cast rooms and waiting areas.

In addition to treating patients with orthopedic concerns resulting from acute sports-related injuries, shoulder, knee and ankle injuries, as well as other musculoskeletal injuries, patients requiring surgery can be directed quickly to an orthopedic surgical specialist.
