Litchfield Hills Orthopedic Associates is now offering same-day appointments for acute orthopedic injuries and conditions Monday through Friday at 281 N. Main St in Bristol. Patients in need of urgent, specialized care for bone, joint and muscle issues are encouraged to call (860) 482-8539 before 4 p.m. to schedule a safe, same-day appointment. Same-day appointments are also available at the practice’s Torrington office at 245 Alvord Park Road. 

In an effort to serve patients in need of prompt care for bone, joint and muscle injuries, Litchfield Hills Orthopedic Associates has increased their availability to provide patients with diagnosis and treatment, along with access to the practice’s wide range of expertise and services. This allows patients to receive specialized orthopedic care while avoiding the wait times and increased risk of COVID-19 exposure at emergency rooms and traditional urgent care facilities.

The practice’s doctors and staff will be available to treat urgent musculoskeletal concerns the same day a patient calls for needs such as:

  • Back pain.
  • Dislocations.
  • Fractures.
  • Painful, swollen joints.
  • Sprains and strains.
  • Sports- and work-related injuries.

“As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, we know that our community still needs quick, safe access to specialized orthopedic care,” says Dr. Lane Spero, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and fellowship-trained spine care specialist at Litchfield Hills Orthopedic Associates. “We are proud to offer same-day access now in Bristol as well as in Torrington as part of our dedication to helping our patients — our friends and neighbors — stay as active and healthy as possible because we are in this together.”
