To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to offer essential orthopedic care, Aspen Orthopedic Specialists is now offering telemedicine as an alternative approach to seeing patients with bone, joint and muscle concerns. This approach enables new and existing patients to safely visit with one of the practice’s specialty-trained providers from the comfort of their own home or office using video conference and telecommunications technology, such as a smartphone, tablet, computer or laptop. Additionally, the practice will continue to provide Same-Day Ortho appointments. Those in need of orthopedic care are encouraged to call (262) 395-4141.
“As we continue to react to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to providing orthopedic care to the community while also keeping our patients and staff safe,” says Dr. James Wood, orthopedic surgeon at Aspen Orthopedic Specialists. “We are continuously keeping a close watch on the recommendations of various national health organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
Through telemedicine, the practice’s specialty-trained experts will be able to provide follow-up appointments as well as consultation and care for the majority of bone, joint and muscle conditions. This new, secure technology complies with federal health privacy laws and offers area residents accurate, high-quality orthopedic care without risk to themselves and others as well as the practice’s providers and staff.
“At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, we prioritize the health and safety of our patients and staff above all else,” says Dr. Wood. “By continuing to safely offer on-site Same-Day Ortho appointments and online appointments through telemedicine, we hope to not only help area residents get the orthopedic care they need but also to reduce the stress on our health system.”
