OrthoEdge Now Offering Telemedicine Visits

Book Your Telemedicine Visit Today

We are committed to offering the highest quality compassionate care to our patients, OrthoEdge is pleased to offer telemedicine appointments. These “virtual visits” allow us to continue providing high-quality care, while protecting our most at-risk patients and helping stop the spread of COVID-19.

Virtual video visits allow you to see your healthcare provider from the comfort of your home. There’s no need to sit in a crowded waiting room. All you need is an internet connection and a mobile phone, tablet or home computer.

During your telemedicine appointment, an OrthoEdge physician will evaluate symptoms, range of motion and movements, and recommend appropriate care. A wide range of conditions can be treated effectively via virtual visits, including arthritis and osteoporosis, sports and rotator cuff issues, joint pain and much more. Post-op and follow-up visits can also be managed effectively via telemedicine.

Have you or a loved one experienced a sports injury? A virtual visit can help you decide whether that visit to an urgent care clinic is really necessary. (A 2016 study found that telehealth reduces medically unnecessary emergency department visits by nearly 7%.)

In certain cases, in-person tests or treatment may be necessary. If you’ve experienced an acute injury with a suspected fracture, you will need to book an in-person visit so that we can obtain x-rays. If you have an acute fracture requiring surgery or reduction, or an unstable joint with disruption of a ligament or tendon, we need to see you in our clinic for in-person evaluation and treatment.

Telemedicine appointments are scheduled in the same manner as in-person visits, and most are available within 24 hours. To get started, call our office or fill out an appointment requst form below. Be sure to check the Telemedicine box. Our scheduler will call you within 24 hours, or the next business day, and will discuss with you the necessary steps to conduct a virtual visit.

Should you decide to visit us in person, please know that OrthoEdge continues to follow a rigorous infection prevention protocol. Our staff and physicians are fully vaccinated. We screen our patients and staff for illness, maintain social distancing, wear protective masks, and aggressively disinfect our office.

Thank you for choosing OrthoEdge for your orthopedic care. Be well and stay safe.
