Patients undergoing an elective procedure will need to have a COVID-19 test done 4-6 business days before their procedure. For your convenience, we opened a curbside COVID-19 Pre-Procedural Testing Center where you can have the test performed from your car The Center is located at N. Broadway and 8th Ave. N outside near SameDay Care. Your care team will schedule a time for you to have your test done at the Center. Testing samples are sent to Mayo Clinic for analysis and take about four to six business days for results. Patients will need to self-quarantine for the period of time between the test sample being collected and the date of their procedure. Thank you for taking this important step to protect yourself, our care team, and other patients.
This Center is specifically for patients scheduled for a procedure who do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Symptomatic patients can call Healthline at (406) 255-8400 or 1-800-252-1246.
The hand surgery and therapy team at Billings Clinic Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is dedicated to providing excellent orthopedic care for patients throughout Montana, Wyoming, and the Western Dakotas.
Disorders of the hand and wrist can range from fractures and dislocations to tendon disruptions, ligament tears, nerve compression, arthritis, joint stiffness and lacerations. Because the anatomy of the hand and wrist is extremely intricate, treatment of these injuries has become highly subspecialized.

This includes Dr. Barry Smith, a fellowship-trained hand surgery specialist, as well as an onsite certified hand occupational therapist. If you experience pain and loss of function from a hand or wrist injury, put our specialists to work for you.
Our services include:
- Treatment of simple and complex fractures
