Orthopedic Fast Track provides same-day visits for patients experiencing a non-life threatening, minor orthopedic injury that does not require emergency treatment, or evaluation of a more nagging problem that they have not had time to get checked. This program offers extended hours of operation and timely access to orthopedic specialists Monday through Friday for people of all ages.

Hennepin Orthopedic Surgeon Andrew Schmidt says, "We are just as expert at taking care of mild to moderate injuries as we are at taking care of major traumas. Don’t waste your time at an urgent care when you can get the best orthopedic treatment the first time, at a clinic that is easy to use and right for your schedule."


Orthopedic Fast Track provides same-day care for conditions requiring medical attention, including:

Ortho Provider with Parent and Female Child Photo
  • Sprains and Strains
  • Minor Sports Injuries (If you can’t walk or move something, we suggest that you go to the ER)
  • Muscle Pain
  • Minor Pediatric Injuries
  • Foot and Ankle Injuries or Problems
  • Knee and Hip Injuries or Problems
  • Hand, Wrist, Elbow and Shoulder Injuries or Problems
  • Cast or Wound Dressing Problems

Orthopedic Fast Track does not see patients for:

  • Neck and Back Pain
  • Second Opinions
  • Pain Medication Refills

Patients with serious injuries such as obvious fractures, open wounds or infections should go directly to the Emergency Department, located at the corner of 8th and Chicago Avenue in the first floor of the Red Building.

Orthopedic Fast Track is not for conditions that do not require urgent same-day medical attention. Please call 612-873-6963 to schedule a routine appointment.

Orthopedic Fast Track is staffed with a team of qualified and experienced orthopedic specialists, with support from Radiology and Orthopedic Technicians.


Free parking is available for same-day patients in the valet lot directly outside the clinic on South 7th Street, between 10th Avenue South and Chicago Avenue. From 6PM–9PM valets are not available, but the gates will be open for free parking.
