Preparing for your appointment

By Mayo Clinic Staff

You'll probably seek medical attention in a hospital's emergency department or at an urgent care center. You may be referred to an orthopedic surgeon.

What to expect from your doctor

Your doctor is likely to ask how the injury occurred and if the joint has ever been dislocated before.
