Under San Francisco's current health order, all medical services, including routine and preventive care, are considered essential. Please contact us to make a telehealth visit or an in-person visit. For in-person appointments, all clinical staff – doctors, physician assistants, clinical personnel -- will be wearing both face masks as well as eye shields or face shields for our patients' safety.
The UCSF Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has greatly expanded our capabilities to offer patients with the option of a Tele-health/ Video Visit, rather than an ‘in-person’ office visit. This is to protect the health of our patients, our staff and providers, and the community at large. We can use this option for the following:
routine clinical follow up visit
first post-operative visit (at your providers’ discretion)
follow up to review the results of previously ordered test and or imaging modality
