Get access to orthopaedic doctors—without making a visit to the doctor’s office!
During the COVID-19 crisis, people are being urged to stay home if at all possible, and social distancing rules are being enforced more strongly by the day. If you’re concerned about coming to our facility or about leaving your family at home, there are other options for treatment we can offer at this time. You might be eligible to receive medical care from an orthopaedic professional without making a trip to the doctor’s office!
While many orthopaedic issues require an office-visit, certain orthopaedic issues can be diagnosed and our doctors can develop a custom treatment plan with you via telemedicine—available on your phone, computer, or tablet device.
As you know, there are certain limitations at this time due to the COVID-19 crisis, but we want to help treat your pain and discomfort as much as possible. If we are able to make a diagnosis during the telemedicine session, we will also proceed with next steps such as prescribing medication. If follow-up is needed, we'll discuss those options and timeframes.
What’s possible via telemedicine?
- Diagnose certain orthopaedic issues
- Develop customized treatment plans
- Prescribe medications
- Review MRI and lab result reviews
- Perform post-operative check-ins
- Advise on physical therapy exercises and stretches to do at home
- Recommend additional follow-up
*Note: Not all telemedicine sessions will result in a diagnosis and/or treatment plan. Some cases may require an office visit for further examination.
