Patient Access

My cast

A cast may be applied to immobilize an injured or operated leg to facilitate healing.

The experienced and approachable nurse on our team is highly skilled in all aspects of custom cast‐making. Our casts are padded, molded and trimmed to immaculate standards each time. The size of the cast and duration of immobilization are dependent upon the type of injury, surgery and anatomical region concerned. Crutches will frequently be required for the patient to remain ambulatory.

It is very important to comply with after‐cast care instructions to ensure an effective and comfortable treatment.

• Elevate the casted limb
• Strictly follow the prescribed weight‐bearing instructions
• Keep the cast dry at all times to protect the underlying skin from maceration
