Get Expert Care

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.

We want to help treat your pain and discomfort as much as possible—from wherever you are. 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.

Tips for a Smooth Telemedicine Visit

Location

Find a quiet space that’s well-lit and free of clutter so that your doctor can see you clearly.

Technology

Ensure your device (computer, tablet, smartphone) has enough charge and a strong internet connection. Be sure to adjust the angle of

the camera or webcam so that your doctor can see you clearly in the frame.

Audio

Make sure all other noises are turned off if possible, such as your TV, washer or dryer, lawnmower, alarms, pets, etc.

General

Have your pharmacy name, location, and number handy should your doctor need to order a prescription.
