Silicon Valley Orthopaedics is remaining open amid the coronavirus outbreak as a walk-in orthopedic clinic for those in need of urgent orthopedic care or those who are injured or in pain. For patients who would rather have a virtual consultation, Telemedicine Services Are Also Available During This Health Crisis Via Doxy.

FREMONT, Calif., March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In an effort to help ease the load on hospitals, emergency rooms, and urgent care facilities treating patients with COVID-19, Silicon Valley Orthopaedics announced it will be providing walk-in orthopedic services at its state of the art facility at 39180 Farwell Drive in Fremont, CA. SVO offers in-house same day X-rays, MRI, injections, leg and arm cast applications as needed for fractures, physical therapy and surgery as indicated for select patients.

It is important to understand that these services are for patients with orthopaedic problems, injuries and pain who are NOT experiencing any symptoms of Coronavirus such as fevers, cough, shortness of breath. If you have any of these symptoms you should call or be evaluated by your local emergency room.

For those not experiencing Coronavirus symptoms but have pain or are in need of urgent orthopedic care, patients can either walk-in or contact Silicon Valley Orthopaedics at http://www.siliconvalleyortho.com or 650-379-4616.

SVO is also providing telemedicine services. Dr. Reynolds can be reached at https://doxy.me/drmasireynolds Dr. Gay can be reached at https://doxy.me/drnicgay

"We want existing patients and anyone else in need to know that they can come to our state of the art facility instead of heading to an already overburdened hospital," stated Kerisimasi Reynolds, MD, co-founder and orthopedic surgeon at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics. "For patients that do not have Coronavirus symptoms, they may call the office or walk into our clinic in Fremont at any time between 8 am and 5 pm PST, Monday through Friday, and we will see them," added Nic Gay, MD, also a co-founder and orthopedic surgeon at SVO.

There are multiple reasons for Silicon Valley Orthopaedics implementing a walk-in system, including the fact that acute orthopedic patients with injuries have urgent orthopedic care needs, even at this time. Silicon Valley Orthopaedics is also working closely with hospitals and other acute care centers in the Freemont and surrounding areas to make sure that their expertise is available at this time.

The team at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics is dedicated to providing effective, long-lasting joint pain relief and improved mobility for their patients.
