A new orthopedics clinic in Corinth keeps costs low and quickly gets patients in for treatment.
OrthoXpress, 2601 Getwell Road, Suite 4, Corinth, treats many bone, joint and muscle problems.
Back pain, bone fractures and knee problems are just a few of the issues OrthoXpress treats. The clinic is equipped with modern technology and offers steroid injections, in-house x-rays and many types of braces.
OrthoXpress is equipped with six exam rooms and helps people save money while avoiding surgery and the emergency room, said Family Nurse Practitioner Brad Dillon.
It accepts patients on a walk-in basis and takes most insurances. There are low cash prices for patients without insurance, Dillon said.
People without insurance can pay a flat fee of $150 to cover all of the services. For instance, if someone broke an arm, he or she could be x-rayed and get a cast for $150.
Dillon previously worked as a surgical intensive care nurse at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. OrthoXpress opened in Corinth in February, and “It’s been going very well so far,” Dillon said.
The clinic makes specialty orthopedic care very accessible to a wide variety of people, including those without insurance.
Dillon said the clinic treats everything from pediatric fractures to geriatric joint and muscle pain. He’s seen runners, baseball players and basketball players suffering from knee, hip, elbow and shoulder pain.
He recently saw a 98-year-old with knee pain and can evaluate walking issues with toddlers. Patients can even be measured for custom braces at home.
Dillon can give steroid injections for joints, tendons, muscle sheaths and trigger points in the back. The clinic sees many cases of osteoarthrtitis, especially in the knees. OrthoXpress also offers gel injections for chronic knee pain.
The clinic has low overheads costs, which helps keep costs low for the patients, Dillon said.
OrthoXpress is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and closed for lunch from noon to 1 p.m. The clinic’s Friday hours are 8 a.m. to noon. For more information, call OrthoXpress at (662) 643-4533 or visit speedheals.com.
