This consult is for anyone who needs quick and adequate care for an acute sport injury, or other orthopedic injuries. The consult has a multidisciplinary character. This means your injury is viewed and treated from different areas of expertise (orthopaedic and physiotherapy). During the consultation, you will initially have an interview with the physiotherapist. Your injury will be examined immediately. If needed, an X-ray examination can be performed. The physiotherapist will discuss his findings with the orthopedist. The physiotherapist and orthopaedic surgeon then will then jointly inform you about the treatment options for your injury.
