Video visits allow you to speak to an orthopedic doctor from the comfort of your own home. This allows you to tell the doctor about your symptoms and what caused your injury which helps us to develop a care plan and clear next steps to treat your specific situation.
If you’re unsure, Telemedicine is a great way to connect with your doctor and determine the urgency of your case. Common reasons to seek an orthopedists expert opinion are:
Pain or stiffness in joints
Follow-up and Rehabilitation
While you must be present for physical examinations, following-up on blood work and other screenings is easiest with Telemedicine.
Follow-up is important so that your doctor can track your progress and give you a clear sense of what the results or changing conditions might mean.
Best for updating or maintaining the condition management plan established by your doctor. Patients with arthritis, bursitis, osteoporosis, scoliosis, etc., can get prescriptions refilled and/or have important questions answered.
After your cast or sling is removed, your doctor might recommend additional rehabilitation exercises or physical therapy to restore muscle strength, joint motion and flexibility.
Most post-operative visits to an orthopedic surgeon are simple rechecks to look at how a wound is healing. The process is visual, usually ending with either, “You’re healing well,” or, “Let me prescribe an antibiotic.”
