COVID-19 (coronavirus) TeleMedicine

In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus), we realize our patients may have questions.

The use of TeleMedicine will be used if you would like to speak with the doctor or nurse about your condition by phone and prefer not to come into the office with a non-emergent case. All routine visits can be done via TeleMedicine. If you would like to schedule a TeleMedicine visit, please call the office to schedule. We will remain open for all acute and urgent orthopedic conditions including post-operative care, fractures, sprains, and tendon tears/injury that require in person evaluation and treatment.

As of right now, all elective surgeries are cancelled until April 1st, 2020. This date can be extended if governing bodies along with local hospitals and outpatient centers decide it is in the best interest of the public to do so.

The office phones will be answered Monday - Friday. Please feel free to call if you have questions regarding your upcoming appointment, medications, or orthopedic related questions. If you have a pressing orthopedic issue, call the office. If we do not answer or it is after hours, you can speak to a doctor through the answering service, or go to the emergency room. You can also leave a message and we will get back to you within 24 hours.

We continue to ask that anyone with a scheduled appointment that has traveled outside the United States in the past 14 days to please reschedule their appointments. The CDC recommends that patients reschedule their appointments if they have the following symptoms: fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Please seek medical advice from your primary care physician, if you develop any of these symptoms.

We will take every precaution to make sure our patients and staff members remain safe during this time. We are here for you and will answer any questions you may have.

What is Orthopaedic Trauma?

Orthopaedic trauma injuries affect the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments anywhere in the body. These injuries can be extremely dangerous, and sometimes even life-threatening or altering, making it vital to visit an experienced surgeon for treatment. Orthopaedic trauma surgeons don’t focus on one specific area of the body, allowing them to treat bone fractures, realign joints or repair damaged tissues to restore functionality anywhere on the patient. These physicians will also be called in to help patients with multiple broken bones, or for fractures in difficult areas near joints, such as the hip, knee, or shoulder.
