About the Clinic

The Fracture Clinic provides conservative management and follow-up of families with children with muscle or bone injury. 

Pre-appointment Instructions

What to bring: 

  • Your child’s health card ready for every appointment, as well as the contact information for your family doctor or paediatrician. 
  • Any imaging that has been done elsewhere (X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, bone scans).  It is best if these can be on a CD. 
  • Appropriate clothing to wear during the physical exam (underwear, shorts, tank top) 
  • If your child has any special toileting needs (urinals, bedpans, catheters) please bring necessary supplies with you as these are not available in clinic. 

Important pre-appointment instructions: 

It is your responsibility to bring any imaging (X-Rays, MRIs, CT scans, bone scans) that has been done elsewhere with you to your child’s appointment. Outside doctors do not send the images to us, so it is very important that these are available for us to see during your appointment. Please make sure that you have all these tests on a CD and bring it with you. 

Directions: 

The Fracture Clinic is located within the Orthopaedic Clinic on the Main Floor of the Hill Wing (Gerrard Street), near Tim Hortons. Clinic registration is through the hallway between the Hill Wing elevators. 

If you are using the underground parking, please take the elevator to the Main Floor. Entrance to the Orthopedic Clinic is through automated double doors next to Starbucks: Go through these doors, follow the signs and footprints down the hallway to the clinic. 

What to Expect During Your Visit

The Orthopaedic Clinic and the waiting area can be an extremely busy place. We may have as many as six different clinics running at the same time, with everyone in the same waiting room. Some clinics run quicker than others, and therefore the wait time may be less for some families. Patients may also be called from the waiting area to go to X-ray, for physio or for other tests. Patients are called in to examination rooms to see the doctor according to appointment times, not arrival times. 

Despite our best efforts, a visit to the Orthopaedic Clinic can be lengthy. Please be aware that the clinic visit could take up to 3 or more hours. Please make appropriate arrangements and come prepared with anything you and your child may need during this time.   

More information: 

If you would like to inquire about your child’s referral or if you cannot come to your scheduled clinic appointment, please email the clinic at fracture.clinic@sickkids.ca.

We will try our best to schedule another appointment as soon as possible, based on availability at that time. You may need to leave a message due to the high volumes of calls received. If you leave a message, you can expect to hear back from us within 24 hours.
