Telemedicine Access Our Experts From Home or the Office

The ability to consult with a specialist over the phone or through a video conference is vital now more than ever. As an adjunct to in-person consultations, telemedicine offers a unique and convenient approach to connecting with our providers to review test results and discuss symptoms and recommendations for further care. 

Here’s how telemedicine can help you stay connected with us and on top of your health. 

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a rapidly growing area that gives health care providers the ability to diagnose and treat patients using telecommunications technology. With many states implementing temporary “stay-at-home” orders to reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19, telemedicine bridges the gap to help patients maintain access to vital services. 

At The Spine Institute of Southeast Texas, new and existing patients  can use their mobile device to schedule and attend remote appointments with our board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Thomas Jones II

As a telemedicine provider, Dr. Jones follows the same evidence-based clinical guidelines as when you visit him in person at our offices in Houston, Perland, and Lake Jackson, Texas. And a telemedicine appointment allows you to remain in the comfort and safety of your home or office. 

Beyond convenience

Telemedicine offers much more than convenience. Individuals with neck and back pain often have decreased mobility, and it may require extra care and effort to attend in-person appointments. If you have a neck or spine condition or are experiencing pain, the ability to access care remotely means you won’t have to worry about aggravating your symptoms with travel.

Your questions answered

With telemedicine, you can have your questions and concerns about your care answered without the need to wait weeks for an in-person appointment. Whether you’ve been diagnosed and are awaiting surgery, or you’re recovering from a recent surgical procedure, Dr. Jones II can answer questions about conditions such as:

No matter what condition you’re dealing with, we can visit with you through a telemedicine appointment to offer one-on-one care and personal recommendations.

While physical exams are an important part of diagnosing spine and joint conditions, patients can address various aspects of care through televisits. Here are just a few things we can do through telemedicine:
