Telehealth Acute Surgery

Our comprehensive surgery services are here to help you get back to living your best life as quickly as possible.

While your surgery will be an in-person appointment, there are times when it may be more convenient for you to see your provider via a video visit for certain visits. Virtual care can often be used for:

  • Assessment
  • Reviewing lab results
  • Follow ups
  • Check-ins
  • Screenings for infection

Telehealth for certain surgery appointments is a fast, convenient and safe way to talk with your provider.

Telehealth visits are not intended for use in emergencies. If you have a surgical emergency, please call 911.

What is Telehealth?

Telehealth is a video-enabled virtual care visit with a health care provider. With telehealth, you can have a video visit with your doctor, safely and securely, no matter where you are.
