Excelsior Express – Urgent Care for Orthopaedic Injuries
If you experience an orthopaedic injury (an injury to a muscle, bone, tendon, ligament or joint) that requires prompt or emergency care, Excelsior Express allows patients at least 2 years of age to skip the hassle of an ER and get the care you need from an orthopaedic expert, faster. Unlike traditional urgent care centers or emergency departments, Excelsior Express is focused solely on musculoskeletal care, meaning you get the specialized care you need faster and without a referral. From sprains, strains and fractures to tendon tears and shoulder dislocations, Excelsior Express is your ideal point of treatment. Excelsior Orthopaedics was the first to offer this unique service in WNY, and we’re proud to be leading the way in advanced, innovative orthopaedic care.
What We Treat
Excelsior Express is equipped to treat a wide variety of injuries, getting you the care you need immediately. Please note that we are only able to treat patients who are at least 2 years of age.
Sprains & Strains
Sprains and strains typically affect muscles, tendons and ligaments. We’re able to treat these soft-tissue injuries in ankles, wrists, knees, shoulders, elbows and hips.
If you’ve suffered a tear in a muscle, ligament or tendon, you’re likely experiencing severe pain, swelling and limited range of motion. Excelsior Express is able to offer the diagnosis and treatment you need.
If you’ve broken a bone, Excelsior Express is able to treat you on-site! We have the diagnostic tools and equipment required for fracture care (note: hip fractures cannot be seen at Express).
The ACL is a major knee stabilizer, often torn during a traumatic injury — common among athletes. Excelsior Express can evaluate and treat these painful knee injuries.Learn More
Rotator Cuff Tears
Rotator cuff tears are very common in athletes, and cause pain and limited range of motion in the shoulder. They are often the result of impact or a fall, so being seen promptly is important for recovery.Learn More
Hand & Wrist Injuries
Hand, wrist and finger injuries are common among athletes, and can often cause serious pain and negatively impact function. Excelsior Express can treat a wide variety of hand, wrist and finger injuries.Learn More
Plantar Fasciitis in Athletes
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the band that runs across the bottom of your foot at the arch. It often causes heel pain associated with overstress or repetitive activity. Excelsior Express is fully equipped to treat plantar fasciitis.Learn More
Despite its name, tennis elbow can be brought on by any repetitive elbow strain. It causes recurrent pain in the elbow, and Excelsior Express can offer the care you require for recovery.Learn More
What We Don't Treat
Not every injury is appropriate for treatment at Excelsior Express. If you’ve experienced one of these, please visit your nearest emergency department.
Open Wounds & Animal Bites
If you’re experiencing heavy bleeding, have a compound fracture, significant open wounds, or an animal bite, you require more comprehensive care and should visit the emergency room.
Head, Back, Neck & Spinal Traumas
If you’ve experienced any injury to the head, neck, back or spine, including a loss of consciousness, it’s critical that you be seen by an emergency room physician.
Hip fractures are often complex injuries that require more comprehensive care. If you suspect you may have fractured your hip, you should visit the nearest emergency department.
Workers' Compensation Injuries
Though we’re happy to treat workers’ compensation injuries, the paperwork required dictates that you make an appointment at your nearest non-urgent Excelsior location. Please call our office at (716) 250-9999
Broken ribs often have or put you at risk for additional internal injuries or complications, and need to be evaluated by an emergency room physician.
Injuries Older than 14 Days
If you experienced an injury more than 14 days ago that now requires more urgent care, please call our office at (716) 250-9999 and make an appointment - you can often be seen same-day.
Accepted Insurance at Excelsior Express
We accept most major insurance carriers and plans. Please bring a copy of your insurance card when you arrive.
Please be aware of your insurance coverage, policy provisions and pre-authorization requirements — a copay may be due at the time of treatment. Due to physician participation variables, it is essential for each patient to contact their insurance provider to verify that our physician accepts your coverage. While we will bill all providers regardless of participation, it is the patient’s responsibility to pay any remaining balance.
