OrthoConnecticut Offers Virtual Medical Visits

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, OrthoConnecticut is now offering telemedicine - virtual visits that enable you to see an orthopedic surgeon from the privacy and safety of your own home or office.

Did you know that many orthopedic issues, including some urgent issues, can be diagnosed using telemedicine appointments? You can get the specialized orthopedic care you need during this period of physical distancing and staying close to home. Telemedicine is simple to use, and the secure video conferencing technology can be used with any device.

Telemedicine Benefits

•          Follow up on an existing issue

•          Get post-surgical advice from your own physician

•          Practice physical distancing without reducing your quality of care

•          Review diagnostic tests such as x-rays and MRIs during a telemedicine visit

•          Simple and easy scheduling

•          Insurance processing for telemedicine and in-office visits are the same
