DANVILLE, Pa. – Patients can connect with an orthopaedic provider on a real-time video consultation through the virtual consult service at Geisinger Orthopaedic Urgent Care clinics. The virtual consult expands the service and offers more convenience to patients as they have their injuries assessed on a video call and find out next steps.

Last May, Geisinger Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine opened five orthopaedic urgent care clinics, giving people with bone, joint and muscle injuries a convenient alternative to the emergency room or urgent care clinics with no appointment necessary. 

Now, the virtual consult offers adults and children immediate access to specialized orthopaedic care for common injuries like a strain, a sprain or a simple fracture that occurred in the last 72 hours. Virtual consultations are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

The team at each facility has the capability to evaluate and treat injuries, perform X-rays, apply splints and casts and schedule follow-up appointments. 

“This virtual consult allows orthopaedic providers to help decide the best treatment care plan for minor injuries, thus avoiding the inconvenience of an emergency room visit and making health easier for our communities. It improves access not only for orthopaedic patients but for all other Geisinger patients — especially now, when many facilities are overwhelmed due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Michael Suk, chair of Geisinger’s Musculoskeletal Institute.

Once a patient is seen by an orthopaedic provider, they are scheduled for follow-up care as needed. 

The five orthopaedic urgent care clinics are in Danville, Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Lewistown and Port Matilda. All locations offer weekday hours, and most offer weekend hours as well. To access the virtual consult, click here or call any of the sites below for more information:
