To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, OrthoSC is now offering telemedicine as an alternative approach to seeing their patients. This approach will allow patients to safely visit with one of the practice’s doctors in the comfort of their own home or office using video conference and telecommunications technology, such as a smartphone or tablet.
Through telemedicine, the practice’s specialty-trained experts will be able to diagnose over 80% of orthopedic injuries, including the following:
- Achilles tendonitis.
- Ankle sprains.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Golfer’s elbow.
- Low-back pain.
- Mallet finger.
- Plantar fasciitis.
- Rotator cuff tears.
- Tennis elbow.
- Wrist sprains.
- And many more injuries, except open cuts and lacerations.
“The safety and well-being of our patients as well as our staff is our top priority,” says Andrew Wade, M.B.A., C.M.P.E., chief executive officer of OrthoSC. “We pride ourselves in being accessible to area residents, and we understand that orthopedic injuries and conditions are painful, inconvenient and often unexpected. That’s why we are continuing to safely provide orthopedic care to patients through telemedicine during this unfortunate crisis.”
