(Clive, Iowa)– During the COVID-19 outbreak, Capital Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine continues to provide care options for their patients. The practice has introduced a new virtual visit option and also continues to offer in-person care for urgent cases at their office in Clive, Iowa, as well as at Pella Regional Health and Knoxville Hospital and Clinics.
“We’re committed to maintaining our high level of care during this crisis,” said Dr. William Jacobson with Capital Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. “Based on case-by-case guidance from our physicians, and using CDC Guidelines, patients can get care through telemedicine, office visits or a combination of the two. Patients who currently have appointments scheduled will be contacted by us to help them determine the best options for their care.”
Patients with chronic issues and those needing annual follow-up care may be asked to re-schedule or set up a virtual visit. Those with acute injuries or conditions that require urgent attention may be offered an in-office appointment. Patients in need of help with acute injuries, infections, post-op care or suture removal can schedule an in-office visit.
“We will continue to have multiple levels of screening guidelines for any in-office visits as we focus on maintaining safety and establish our own protocols and procedures in this rapidly changing environment,” said Jacobson.
Patients who need orthopaedic care are encouraged to call Capital Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at 515-440-2676. They can also visit dsmcapitalortho.com for more information.
