EmergeOrtho—Triangle Region is doing our part to keep our patients, doctors, and teammates safe.
We are following the most current guidelines set by the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Task Force (NCDHHS).
While in-person visits are limited to essential/emergency-related purposes, for the time being, our Triangle area physicians continue our commitment to patient-centered care by expanding our orthopedic telemedicine reach.
Current events have “pushed the ‘fast-forward’ button on the wholesale embracing of telemedicine by insurance carriers,” says EmergeOrtho-Triangle’s medical director, Dr. William Silver. “It’s a great opportunity to keep our patients, our staff, and our providers ‘socially distanced’ and help slow the spread of the virus.”
You and those you care for can receive the same high-quality, subspecialty orthopedic care, through virtual platforms such as FaceTime, Google Duo, doxy.me, and more on your phones, laptops, desktops, and other smart devices.
Though you may not know it, telemedicine has been utilized by EmergeOrtho for some time now. In fact, virtual orthopedic visits have been quite successful for issues such as joint replacement consultations for commuting patients.
In addition to joint replacement consultations, there are other types of subspecialty orthopedic telemedicine services that can be approached virtually, which include:
- New patient visits for new orthopedic conditions
- Follow-up visits (including many post-surgical appointments)
- Virtual diagnosis of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions
- Treatment options for select orthopedic-related injuries and conditions
- Physical therapy treatment, recommendations, and follow-up consultations
If you are curious about whether your orthopedic injury or condition can be evaluated through a virtual visit in real-time or an online PT session, fill out the form on the right or, call us now at 919-220-5255.
