Frequently Asked Questions

  • What to Expect

    You'll be seen by a certified orthopedic physician assistant with advanced training and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic (muscle, bone and joint) injuries. An OPA on-call surgeon is available for immediate consultation as needed. On-site x-ray and other imaging services ensure patients receive quick, personalized care that includes a diagnosis, treatment plan and any necessary stabilization devices such as crutches, braces or casts to get you on the road to recovery.

    On-site Support Services:

    • X-Ray
    • Fluoroscopy
    • MRI & CT (On site in Anchorage; nearby in the Valley; if not available at the time of your visit, you may need to schedule these for a later date.)
    • Diagnosis & Treatment Plans
    • Casting & Splinting
    • Braces, Crutches and other Supports

    If Surgery is Indicated:

    An OPA surgeon is always on call for consultation or emergency surgery. If urgent surgery is needed, the OPA on-call surgeon can immediately admit you to a hospital and meet you there within minutes to perform the surgery.

  • When to Call 911

    • Life-threatening trauma injuries
    • Open fractures (bone penetrating skin)
    • Hip fractures
    • Dislocated shoulder or hip
    • If you've been in a car accident
    • If you suspect a concussion
    • Children under 2 years old with non-weight-bearing orthopedic injuries should also go directly to an E.R. where the services of an anesthesiologist are readily accessible.

    Note: If you need emergency transport, chances are you need to go an E.R.

    Patients going to an E.R. may request the OPA surgeon on-call to attend to the injury at the hospital by calling OPA at 562-2277 or informing the E.R. staff.
